    Run as Adobe Flash Pro Extension

    nuthinking39 Community Member

      Trying this on a new sample project (the one with just a button) but no extension is available in the Window>Extension menu.

       

      I am using Adobe Extension Builder 2.1 and Flash Pro CS 6 12.0 on Mac.

       

      I followed all the troubleshooting instructions here: http://cssdk.host.adobe.com/sdk/2.1/docs/WebHelp/getting_started/running.htm

       

      And all besides the .plist files (which are named slightly different and there wasn't any xx3xxx version) seems fine.

       

      The PSVideoDemo example works fine in PhotoShop CS6.

       

       

       

       

      Thanks!

          Hi,

           

          Thanks for the query.

           

          Let me make sure I understand you correctly. You are using Extension Builder 2.1 to build and run a sample extension in Flash Pro CS6 and it doesn't show up in the Window->Extensions menu?

           

          Best regards,

          Hallgrimur

            That .plist file step in the trouble shooting document  is mandatory. If you didn't find files maybe you are looking into /Library instead of /Users/{yourAccountName}/Library. The file name is com.adobe.CSXS.3.plist.

            You need to confirm following content:

             

            <dict>

                 ...

                 <key>PlayerDebugMode</key>

                 <string>1</string>

            </dict>

              I can confirm you, probably I created it myself, I have the file /Users/xxx/Library/Preferences/com.adobe.CSXS.3.plist with content:

               

              <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

              <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">

              <plist version="1.0">

              <dict>

                        <key>LogLevel</key>

                        <string>1</string>

                        <key>PlayerDebugMode</key>

                        <string>1</string>

              </dict>

              </plist>

               

              Stil Flash Pro CS6 starts with no new panel opened and empty Window > Extensions menu.

                Then can you post the content of /Users/{yourAccount}/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CS6ServiceManager/extensions/{your_extension_bundle_id}/CSXS/manifest.xml, as you should check in the trouble shooting step 2?

                    I didn't check the SDK I was compiling for. Checked now (was 4.6) and tried with 4.5 as mentioned in the troubleshooting, no difference.

                      Hi,

                       

                      Thanks for trying out our suggestions.

                       

                      We have now learned that this is probably a problem with Flash Pro CS6 and I'm talking to that team to figure out what's going on.

                       

                      I will keep you updated on our progress.

                       

                      Best regards,

                      Hallgrimur
