    UninitializedError with Flex Component Kit

    Traced67 Level 1
      Hi erverybody,

      I am right know encountering a very annoying bug which drives me nuts by avoiding me to use Flex Component Kit.
      I did a test file in flash with just a rectangle symbole that I converted to a MovieClip with the name "MyTestClass". I selected it in the library and used the "convert symbol to flex component" command. I published the .swc file and put it in the library path of my Flex project.

      If I try to insert it in my mxml page I have only the UninitializedError hint in place of the MyTestClass:

      <local:UninitializedError />

      If I declare a namespace for my .swc:


      I also get the UninitializedError:

      <flcomps:UninitializedError />

      If I create a normal class file in a folder "components" in the src folder, I can reference it without problem:


      <comp:MyTestClass />

      I am right now totally unable to import any Flash MovieClip into Flex !!!!

      I followed the steps provided into this video:

      Does anyone encountered this bug and got a solution? I already uninstalled/reinstalled Flash CS3, Flex Builder 3 and the Flex Component Kit...

      Many thanks for all the help you can bring me...

      Best regards

          That's really weird!

          After digging around, reinstalling Flash CS3 again and doing multiple tests, I finally found the source of the problem:

          Two .swc files residing in the same folder where I was saving my tests files were avoiding the Flash compiler to successfully create new .swc files!? I cannot understand how this can be possible. As soon as I choosed a new folder for saving the test files, I could link to the .swc and access the component from Flex. Also as soon as I moved out the two culprid files I could again save in the previous folder...

          Does anyone has an idea how this can happen?

          For those interested in the case, you can download the 2 culprid files here

          Best regards,
