So just want to see if anyone else has run across any of
these issues I am seeing in Flex Builder. I recently reinstalled my
Vista SP1 system and put on Comodo Firewall and Panda AV, left UAC
1) Eclipse annoyingly tries to write to the install folder
every time it starts up, just to see if it can, dutifully popping
up a dialog for Comodo. And you can't just 'allow' it, as it
randomizes the file name of the DLL (why a dll and why random?).
This is an eclipse issue I guess but still annoying as heck.
2) In order to avoid having to kill ieuser.exe everytime I
restart my debug session, I have to run FlexBuilder as
administrator, when UAC is enabled.This was supposedly fixed by
disabling IPv6 in flexbuilder.ini for FB3, but not in my case.
3) FlexBuilder will crash with an internal error if it can't
find the build path. My project had an old drive share letter that
wasn't correct, but rather than tell me that, it just gave an
4) Writing to network drives in general is VERY flaky.
Sometimes it works, then other times it seems to not be able to
write and starts giving the internal errors again.
5) Trying to change the output folder simply isn't working,
whether to a network drive or local. It does a little dialog popup
blink, then when I reopen properties, it didn't change. Or maybe it
did change, but I have to reopen Flex Builder to see the change?
Flex Builder can make a lot of things easier, but when it
goes wrong, it can really get frustrating quickly.
