    Is Project -> Build automatically turned on? Are the errors in your "Problems" view?

     

    This happens because the SWF that AIR is looking for is not present. The SWF usually has the same name as main application and is referenced in the appname-app.xml file in bin-debug via the content XML tag.

    Also, is your output folder set to bin-debug? (In Project Properties -> Build Path)

    On a related note that might be the cause of some people's problem:

     

    I just had a similar problem (how/why I found this post) and I was getting a similar error.  The problem started when I deleted the .swf from the bin-release folder.  I kept getting:

    Process terminated unexpectedly.

     

    initial content not found

     

    Launch command details:  "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Flash Builder 4.6\sdks\4.6.0\bin\adl.exe" -runtime "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Flash Builder 4.6\sdks\4.6.0\runtimes\air\win" C:\wamp\www\Imaginus.org\projects\xxx\xxx\xxx-app.xml C:\wamp\www\Imaginus.org\projects\xxx\xxx

     

    (xxx is/was the name of my project)

    I fixed the problem when I was looking at the properties and under "Properties>Builders" there is a checkbox for "Missing Builder (com.powerflasher.fdt.core.FlashBuilder)" that I'm guessing was added when I installed FDT PowerFlasher to play with a few days ago.  I unchecked the box and approved the "This is an advanced operation..." warning.  The compiler reconfigured itself and I tried to launch again.  This time FB DID rebuild the .swf and launched as expected.

     

    Thought I'd add this comment just in case other people find this thread and just happen to have the same problem.

     

    =)
