I've been trying to run the flex3 SDK command line debugger
with no success (a frozen cmd prompt on one attempt). I'm running
this by double-clicking on the fdb file, and typing '
RUNpath to my debug swf'.
The error message it's returning makes little sense to me:
Cannot run program "C:\swishsoft\Swift Optimizer\swiftplayer.exe
%1": CreateProcess error=3, The system cannot find the path
A while back I installed Swift Optimizer on my system, but
deleted it quickly as, frankly, it sucks big time. Just seems
strange that the Flex debugger has mentioned this file (unless
Swift Optimizer has changed something, somewhere that fdb is
Can anybody shed any light on this oddity, or - more likely -
what I'm doing wrong?
Swishsoft, with their useless swf optimizer, make 3
significant changes to your computer's registry, indicating that
their useless swf optimizer is the default JAR Launcher, creating
conflicts with fdb's attempts to launch your debug swf file.
I deleted all 3 entries in the registry (2 of them reverted
back to their default state), and now fdb works as it was designed
to. Problem solved :)
NOTE: Modifying your computer's registry could render your
computer kaput. Tinker carefully ;)
