Hi, you can purchase FB3 and then use that to get a beta extension serial.
If I buy FB3, will I get a free upgrade to FB4 when it comes out?
No, the upgrade won't be free - I'm not sure that we have determined the upgrade pricing yet.
Well, actually, this information is not true in the least bit. I just bought a Flex 3 Standard license and was unable to use it with Flash Builder 4. After 2 aggravating hours of trying to deal with Adobe Customer Support, there is no way to make it work. You've been warned.
Are you trying to use your FB3 serial in the FB4 beta? Or did you use the Adobe Flash Builder 4 beta extension site to get a FB4 beta serial?
Customer support basically told me that there was no way that I could
continue my trial of Flash Builder 4, so I had to return the software (Flex
Builder 3) the same day I bought it. The application I'm building requires
features present in Flex 4, so I don't have too many choices here. The
software destruction agreement is still pending, but I don't want to go
through the headache of dealing with customer support again.
I had no idea of the serial number request form until now, I wish I did.
Unfortunately I am just going to have to wait until Flash Builder 4 comes
out, to avoid giving my boss a heart attack asking him to buy Flex Builder 3
again. And, to answer your question: yes, I did try my existing FB3 serial
number into Flash Builder 4 and it did not work.
