Can I get anyone to say they can start a new ActionScript for Mobile project, launch it on the AIR simulator as an iPad and get the profiler to connect? I'd really like to see if I'm an isolated issue. Thanks.
I did your steps and it appears to work fine for me.
Thanks for confirmation, good to know it's working and the problem is on my end. Here comes a lengthy reinstall..
Reinstalled, still doesn't work, same error. Ugh.
I logged into another workstation and activated it there, the profiler works.
I'm mostly putting this here in case someone else has the same issue with the profiler as it's the primary purpose you buy FB Premium over FB Standard. While I like Scout, I don't find it to be an adequate replacement unless your workstation is turbo charged (read: Not a laptop).
Noting here that I installed it on a different local workstation and again the profiler worked.
I then did what has worked for some people with config issues and made a new user on the laptop that the profiler won't work on. I started FB4.7, made a new project, profiled it and it worked fine.
Sounds like it's going to be a firewall troubleshooting issue. I've deleted my preferences from c:\users\[me]\Adobe Flash Builder 4.7\ (nuked the whole folder), prefs were rebuilt for eclipse and FB, profiler still can't connect..
