I had a project in Flash Builder that I needed to update; the old version was a Flash Professional project using an FLA, but the new version uses XFL and a different folder structure. I right clicked on the old project in Flash Builder and selected "Delete" then chose the "Do not delete contents" option. I then renamed the project folder and put the new version of the project, with the same folder name, in the same location.
Flash Builder will not let me import the new version of the project. It will take me through the import wizard but when it completes nothing shows up in Flash Builder. Almost seems like there is a "permanently ignore projects with this name forever" flag hidden somewhere, although I'd hope FB wasn't that inflexible. Does anyone know how to solve this problem? Thanks.
Eclipse has severe problems with case sensitivity in project names, and will silently crash if the name of a project changes in case. Apparently even if you delete the project and recreate it. So I had to change the capitalization to match the previous version.
