Well this definitely gave me some trouble, but I have the solution. I'm actually surprised more people haven't run into this.
In my Windows environment, I changed my "home" from C:\Documents and Settings\Ryan (in Windows XP) and C:\Users\Ryan (in Vista) to my D:\ partition. The Flex Builder installer does a pretty decent job of using my new home when it performs the install. During the install, Flex Builder adds a FlexBuilder 3 folder in my Documents folder in addition to the regular application installation. This contains metadata and configuration settings for Flex Builder (including the Profiler's SWF file).
The problem is, when the profiler is kicked off, it uses the environment variable %HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%. Even if you successfully change your Documents folder in Windows, the %HOMEDRIVE% is still set to C:. From research I've done, indications are, you don't want to change this environment variable (if you can figure out a way to do so).
So, I think FlexBuilder was looking in the C:\Users\Ryan\Documents for that FlexBuilder 3 folder. I copied that folder from D:\Users\Ryan\Documents to C:\Users\Ryan\Documents and the profiler started working.
Hopefully this will spare someone the hours it took me to figure it out.

I am having the same issue. I am trying to profile an AIR app, but do not get the dialog box. The app launches and then I get a socket timeout. I am running Flex Builder 3.0.2 (x86) on Vista. I think my home drive is C:\, I never changed it to anything else. And the profiler swf is in C:\Users\chris farrell\Documents\Flex Builder 3\.metadata\.plugins\com.adobe.flash.profiler\ProfilerAgent.swf. The app runs from C:\dev\clientName\projectName. Has anyone else had this problem?
Yes, snap, exactly the same issue but on WinXP.
