The correct way to install CS Extensions is with a ZXP installer.
Extensions belong in:
You need the manifest file in the CSXS subfolder as well as the swf in the main folder. The manifest file tells the individual app where/whether to install the extension.
thx for your answer. As I don't have Extension builder installed yet, I do extensions with Flex and csaw libs, so it is easier for me to debug placing the swf directly into the folders like for Photoshop and Indesign. Of course in the end I would have set a correct extension but for now it was better for me to do this way.
So what I understand is that there is no way to get that behaviour with Illustrator unless I do process and install a whole extension package. Annoying but well, will have to deal with it.
I didn't say that.
You might be able to get it to work by placing the swf and manifest file in the correct location yourself.
I believe the "debug flag" needs to be set to true for that to work...

Extension Builder really makes life a lot easier, so I recommend installing it. EB automatically places the extension in the correct place. There's even an "Attach As" function which allows testing the extension without restarting the app (in some apps, using some extensions...).
Yeah, I got the license by my company but I will grab the install only on wednesday at headquarters. I can't wait to start playing with
is it working (the "Attach As", I mean)?
I thought it was a beta feature always grayed out - at least it is with PS extension.
Wrong App and wrong Extension I guess
"Attach as" (usually) works with InDesign, InCopy, Illustartor and Flash.
