Odd, Downloading the zip file from the alpha 2 link and running the turnkey project here, I see it completing 172 tests with no failures.
Are you running FlexUnit4Turnkey.mxml as the main application? Which version of the SDK are you compiling with? Is it showing any successes, or just the 8 failures for you?
I really appreciate the help. First off ... I was completely mistaken. I was using looking at an older copy of FlexUnit I had. Oddly enough the first time I ran the tests for FlexUnit4 they failed ... but because of something running in the background. Just a small string of unlucky events.
no problem, glad to help!
