I thought I had more time on my license, but when I opened Flash Builder today it said this would be the last time I'm allowed to open it without a valid serial number. Is there an ETA on the extension serial number page? Or am I falling back to Flex Builder 3 for now?
Updated: I quit Flash Builder 4 and restarted it -- sure enough, it insists on a serial number. Looks like the build I'm using limits the number of times the application can be opened instead of the number of days it can be used.

Gulp - if that happened to me at the moment that would be a big problem! The app I'm developing is aimed at proper public release in 2009 so it makes sense to me to have ported it to Flex 4 SDK and Flash Builder Project.
Hopefully someone from Adobe can shed some more light on the situation as I've not discovered much through Google searches.
If you have a valid FB3 license, and it is tied to your user account at Adobe, they will be emailing you a serial for FB4 Beta when you have approx. 10 days left.
If you don't receive the email, there will be a form on labs.adobe.com where you can imput your FB3 serial to get a FB4 serial.
Unfortunately, Ross, my license has *already* expired, I do have a valid Flex Builder 3 key (pro), and the form to request an extension does not exist yet.
Right now I am trying to migrate my work back into Flex Builder 3, which is turning out to be a real pain.
I won't be receiving that email because my license was bought for me by the company I was working for.
So would be really good to know where to find the form on labs.adobe.com before my 15 days expires.
Here is the page: http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashbuilder4/extension.html
Though, it has an "Under construction" message on it right now. None of the FB4 trials (except the MAX Preview I think) should have expired yet, and I think they are timing the page to be up starting the last 10 days of the month.
Yeah, I get that none of them should have expired yet. But mine has. I did download it fairly early, but I'm pretty sure it was Beta 1.
Thanks for the link Ross :-)
WE're getting this page up next week. There's no good reason why FB should have expired if you started using the public beta. If you had a build you got from another source though your time trial may have been affected.
Thanks, Matt. I'm almost certain I got it through Adobe's site, but I'll wait until next week for a license extension. I have everything back in Flex Builder 3, so my immediate crisis is averted.
I was wondering when it will become available, today is the last day my license is valid, and i really need to work tomorrow.
Still tells me it's under construction. Adobe customer service never heard of Flash Builder 4 and cannot upgrade my license(s).
I'll be in trouble if we cannot keep using FB4.
Please tell me the good news
The site is expected to go up later this week.
If you send me a private forum message with your FB 3 serial number, I can send you a beta serial for FB 4.
Wow, my Flash Builder license went from 10 days left to no days left between yesterday and today and now I'm stuck!
a) when is this site going to be up?
b) if not soon, what should I do (other than migrating back to FB3)?
Never got any email or anything regarding a temporary license. Kind of bummed. Completely sunk
If you have a copy of Flex Builder 3, you can go to https://freeriatools.adobe.com/flashbuilder4beta/ to request an Adobe Flash Builder 4 beta extension serial number. For more information, see http://blogs.adobe.com/flex/archives/2009/06/flash_builder_beta_serial_numb.html.
