    Timer and setInterval dont work when copying files




      I have written an Air application in Flex 3. Its designed to copy files to a new location and build new files from templates. It works fine and does the job however visually its pretty bland and does not give any indication outside of Flex Builder that its doing anything. In fact the Air window its in goes transparent and it looks like its crashed.


      I have tried using a timer and setInterval to update a graphic indication that something is happening but these events just seem to be ignored while the application is churning through copying and moving files.


      Any idea how to get some sort of visual feedback or force a screen refresh?
