Much to my surprise I found 4 (!) different FlexBuilder.exe processes in my TaskManager process list (WinXP+SP3).
I have currently opened only 1.
Moreover 3 of them consume between 19 and 30% of the total CPU power!
Is this a bug?
If I close the current FlexBuilder one of the 4 vanishes but 3 remain active
Why are dead Flexbuilder.exe not removed? Do I have to set an explicite option for that?
I expected even when I start a new instance of FlexBuilder this instance should check wether there is already a running instance
and warn me or use this.
Is there a preference "allow only 1 instance of FlexBuilder" ?
Flex Builder is based on Eclipse and there is no parameters so start only a sigle version - you can use several products based on Eclipce simultaneously or use several instanceses of one product.
If you see several intances in Task Manager, some instances can't stop working and you can kill them in task manager. After that you can see FB logs for errors. You can also check number of javaw.exe processes.
