This is a known limitation in Flash Builder.
Please put your linked assets in a new source folder (Project properties -> Flex Build Path -> Source Path -> Add Folder and point to an external folder).
Unless it is a "source" folder, the compiler ignores assets in linked folders while exporting.
Thanks so much Anirudh!
We're going to give it a try right now.
Well Anirudh, it somewhat worked. I added the new source
folder just like you diagrammed and when I compiled the project to an AIR application the application file size jumped from 3mb to 500mb. So it obviously pulled the linked images. But when we installed the AIR application the images still weren't found. Any ideas?
Right now there are two items in the project that have Assets in the name. I don't think this is correct.
Here's a screen grab.
Put assets in another folder, say src_assets and make that the source folder.
Think of it this way - each src folder is in the default package.
This sounds a lot lik emy problem, with the iOS version not compiling, but mine are included in the src-assets-mp3 folder. When I try to compile for iOS it just hangs, though it compiles for Android fine... I am trying the same thing you suggested, Ill post here if it helps me also.
