Lookup the flash debug player executable on your system and open it once. This has solved the problem for me in the past. It remembers somehow which player to use. Also if you have Flash it might use the player in that directory (which isn't a problem) but it could be an old version.
Oh sorry i forgot to mention that i run OSX where you dont have exe's >.<
Thanks for your answer anyway!
I'm assuming you are having trouble launching the debugger standalone binary on Mac. Open Finder, select any SWF file, do a "Get Info" and say "Open with" and point to the debug version of standalone player and choose "Change All".
You can get the debug version of standalone player here: http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html

Thanks for trying to help me, I thought something like that should fix it so i tried that before.. but for some reason it wont change the standard player.. it keeps opening it with 10...22 and the debug version i got is 10...45 soo yea i will try to find a solution to really change my standard (maby by terminal) or something.
Thanks anyway =D
I searched the web of people had the same problem with setting the default app in a global way (so not focussed on flash) and it seemed that if you rename the default app and then select a new default you will change it! I tried that and it worked! I renamed all the flashplayers on my mac (they where all in the Flash CS4 folder) to another name and now it uses my stand alone debug player!
So i guess that fixes my problem, but still its stupid of Flash Builder to fetch a non bebug version of Flash player from the Flash CS4 folder when i ask for it ^_^
Thanks all for your replies!
