    Please see if the following steps remedy the problem.


           1. Quit all running applications.
           2. Uninstall Flash Builder Beta.
           3. Making sure that there are still no other applications running, install Flash Builder Beta.
           4. In most cases, steps 1-3 should be enough, but if it still won't launch, a reboot can help as a follow-up.

    Can you post a little more of the error log?  If you post the entire !MESSAGE block, that will help us figure out what is going on.  Specifically, we'll need to see the part that says


    Caused by: ...


    and another part below that, I can't remember the wording, "Original exception:" or something like that.

    Does this file exist on your machine?


    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Flash Builder Beta\plugins\com.adobe.flexide.amt_4.0.0.235740\os\win32\x86\amt_win_ jnilib.dll

    The error message in the log seems to indicate that for some reason, Flash Builder was unable to load the DLL I asked about in the previous message.  I have no idea why -- the main reasons I can think of are:


    - it doesn't exist (but you checked, and it does exist, so that's not the problem)

    - some sort of file-permissions issue, e.g. Flash Builder doesn't have permission to read the file (but I can't think of any possible reason why we wouldn't have permission to read the file -- unless perhaps the file was added by one user account on the machine, and you are now running in a different user account?  Anyway, try copying the file to another directory -- if the copy succeeds, then that rules out most problems with file permissions.)

    - the file is corrupt


    None of these seem very likely, so I am at a loss to explain why it is failing, sorry.

    I was having this issue on WIndows 7 64-bit. I found that running eclipse as administrator fixed the problem.
