Unable to debug an Extension builder application

i am trying to debug a 'hello world' extension builder project with no luck. it opens "InDesign" (since i am debugging as an indesign extension) then hangs for like a minute before displaying the following error:


error launching application. reason: debug timed timed out.


I am running trial versions of both adobe Flash builder 4.6 and adobe InDesign CC could that be the reason?


any ideas?

    Trial version is functionally equal to product version.


    The debug as will help you launch point product but won't help you open the extension. In your case, after InDesign was launched, you need to goto window->extensions, open your extension. The debug session should be able to start then.
