    Flex won't start

      I think I may have killed Flex. I have been working on another project that has required some messing around with Java, and now Flex won't start. It does give me the exit code = -1 when it tries to start. If anyone know how to fix this problem I would appreciate hearing how.

      Thanks in advanced,

          You could try and "clean" the cached bundled data to see if that helps at all. Directions as follows.
          1. Go to install_drive\Program Files\Adobe\Flex Builder 3
          2. Open FlexBuilder.ini
          3. Add the following to the top of the file (not the bottom) and save it.


          4. Launch Flex Builder
          5. Remove -clean after exiting Flex Builder

            Thanks for the idea but that didn't seem to help. Any other suggestions?

                When you were messing around with JAVA were you using straight eclipse to develop with?

                  Hi I wan't using Eclipse, I was trying to install Java's wonderland, which required some path editing. I tried opening eclipse and I got an error I check the log and this is what it says:

                  So does Flex not work with JDK 6? because if not that would explain the problem.

                    So here one other piece of information that may be helpful, I double-clicked on Flex Builder/Contets/MacOS/FlexBuilder. and Flex opened normally. Maybe this will be helpful to someone.

                      simple solution
                      download another JVM(JDK) install it anywhere you want and tell flex builder to use that JVM , thats it. most likely problem will be solved

                        That seems like it would work. But how can I have Flex point to the new JDK if I can't open Flex?

                        By the way I have already changed the Java path variable so that it points to a stable JDK and I reinstalled the Xcode tools just to see if that might help.
