In working with FlexUnit I've noticed the following output when running on Windows:
[flexunit] Launching player:
[flexunit] Executing 'rundll32' with arguments:
For developers who have installed FlexBuilder this execution method is working fine. When developers who do not have FlexBuilder installed run the tests they essentially hang and time out because the Flash movie is never started because the OS doesn't have a handler for .swf files registered. We can work around this by creating that handler for any given machine.
I'm curious to know if there is a way that the Ant task can use a player from the SDK pointed to by FLEX_HOME instead of relying on the operating system to supply the related player?
