I cannot get past step 2, Getting Started. I have a dirt
simple app, and when I click the profiler button, it launches my
Firefox (or IE, or debug player) and then the flash player asks
where the profiler is running (Localhost or External machine).
Either option does nothing.
Then, the console says: socket timeout.
When I do the same thing but click the debugger button,
everything works fine in both browsers and debug player. I see my
trace calls in the eclipse console.
But the profiler just doesn't work, and I haven't found
anything on the Web pointing me toward the right direction.
I seem to be able to telnet into the port briefly (i have
tried both 9999 (default) and 3434).
It shows this in the Flex Builder console after a while:
java.io.IOException: Unknown 'agent -> profiler' command:
at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)
Basically it looks like the Flex Builder cannot communicate
to the debug player which port it is located at...
