    Installing Flex SDK

    Danny*B

      Hello All,

       

      Please excuse my ignorance; however, I am new to development.

       

      After talking to a friend I decided to have a go at building flash into my websites.  As a skint student I opted to download the Flex SDK open source package.

       

      I have downloaded FlexSDK from the Adobe site, unzipped the folder and saved it to my c:programes folder.  When I looked for an execuatble file to launch the application - nothing.  I continued to research which led me to install the plugins from the runtime folder after first unistalling my current version of flash.

       

      As there was no joy launching an application I did further research into the open source Flex SDK; pretty much every review mentions developing within an IDE /your chosen IDE.

       

      Please help:

       

      - What am I missing please?

       

      - How do I get to work with flash using Flex SDK?

       

      - How do I unintall Flex and the plugins and get back to how I was, as I cannot find any uninstall information? (without restoring windows as I have just installed a load of new software)

       

      There must be a way to make use of these files in an IDE; I must be launching it wrongly.

       

      Thanks!
