    Can't access applicationDirectory

    cwramsey

      I'm trying to open a database like every tutorial is telling me to... but I can't open it using applicationDirectory.

       

      This is being written in Flex, and runs as a desktop app in AIR, which means I SHOULD be able to access that directory...

       

      Here's the line I'm having trouble with.

       

       

      var file:File = new File.applicationDirectory.resolvePath("letters.db");

       

       

      And the error I'm getting is...

       

      Description     Resource     Path     Location     Type
      1048: Method cannot be used as a constructor.     Main.mxml     Business Letters/src     line 77     Flex Problem

       

       

       

      Any ideas?
