I'm not quite sure what has gone wrong here, but can you please try launching with the "-clean" command line option? E.g. from the command line:
Some background, in case it helps: Although I don't know why this has happened, it appears that a DLL is missing. Almost all of Flex Builder is written in Java, but there are a few bits of native code. In your "plugins" directory (e.g. "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Flex Builder 3\plugins", or ""C:\Program Files\Adobe\Flex Builder 3 Plug-in\eclipse\plugins", something like that) should be either a file or a directory called com.adobe.flexbuilder.utils.osnative_3.0.*.jar (where "*" is a six-digit number). Inside that jar file, among other things, should be a file called os/win32/x86/JNIToNativeBridge.dll. Please note, there are two plugins with similar names: com.adobe.flexbuilder.utils.osnative, and com.adobe.flexbuilder.utils.osnative.win. The one I am referring to here is the one that does *not* have "win" in the name.
Eclipse caches lots of stuff; one thing it does is, if it finds a DLL in a plugin, it sometimes copies that DLL to another place, called the configuration directory. The "-clean" option tells Eclipse to discard its cache.
Please let me know whether this resolves the problem.
thanks for the response. I already try it with the startup parameter "clean" but without success. Also I took a absolutely new and clean eclipse version.
I checked my flex builder's eclipse folder and found these 2 entries:
3 KB com.adobe.flexbuilder.utils.osnative.win_3.0.194161.jar
69 KB com.adobe.flexbuilder.utils.osnative_3.0.194161.jar
so I got it working finally... the problem was that it was required to run the FB installer with "adminstrator privilegs" by right-clicking and select the option from the context menu. This was not what I expected... with earlier versions of FB (beta 2 and 3) I never got such problems with the installation.
NO! It wasn't the "admin privilegs" at the installation... the problem is Eclipse is uanble to load the FB plugin without these privilegs. After closing eclipse and restarting same problems came back. Only when I run Eclipse with the mentioned action (from the context menu) the Flex Builder plugin works.
Hope this experience helps others!
Thanks for your efforts!
