    Flash Builder 4 - An internal build error

    ilya_k Level 1

      Greetings!

       

      This question was posted in Flex forum but I got no responses and realized that it was

       

      the wrong forum....Pleas help!

       

       

      We are using Eclipse 3.4 or 3,5 with Flash 4 plugin and Flex SDK 3.3.0 on Win XP.

      Project set comprises several (more than a couple dozen), dependent  Flex and Java projects.

      Most of us run across an internal build error in all Flex projects:

      "An internal build error has occurred. Right-click for more information"

       

      The topmost stack trace entries are:

       

       

       

      !ENTRY com.adobe.flexbuilder.project 4 43 2010-07-23 14:40:38.353

      !MESSAGE Uncaught exception in compiler

      !STACK 0

      java.lang.NullPointerException

      at com.adobe.flexbuilder.multisdk.compiler.internal.ASBuilder.applySettings(ASBuil der.java:325)

      at com.adobe.flexbuilder.multisdk.compiler.internal.ASApplicationBuilder.setup(ASA pplicationBuilder.java:67)

      at com.adobe.flexbuilder.multisdk.compiler.internal.ASItemBuilder.setup(ASItemBuil der.java:54)

      at com.adobe.flexbuilder.project.compiler.BuilderFactory.createBuilder(BuilderFact ory.java:80)

      at com.adobe.flexbuilder.project.compiler.BuilderFactory.createBuilder(BuilderFact ory.java:59)

      at com.adobe.flexbuilder.project.compiler.BuilderManager.getBuilder(BuilderManager .java:192)

       

      ...

       

      When it happens you can not open project "Properties | Flex Compiler"  dialog because error

      message pops up saying "The currently displayed page contains invalid values."

       

      I am not sure how "an internal build error..." relates to "...displayed page contains invalid values"

      but  it worth to mention anyway.

       

      So far we did not find how to get around the problem except deleting project set and even

      sometimes uninstall Flash Builder 4 and start from scratch.

       

      I represent a several teams in the big corporation (even I speak for myself) with many

      licenses bought. It is so painful that, if  we do get help from Adobe we will  consider moving

      out of Flash Builder and use another IDE.

       

       

      Thanks for your help.
