I have an AIR project with additional resources (XML etc.) stored in the bin-debug folder.
I'm using Flash Builder Burrito (the app needs to be deployed to Android also).
When building via the "Release Build" option, I get to the "Package Contents" step and none of my files are available (only the SWFs and the AIR manifest file are there).
It would appear that behind the scenes, Flash Builder creates a "bin-release" folder and builds into it, and this is the folder whose contents I am seeing in the "Package Contents" page. After building the AIR file, this folder is deleted.
For workflow reasons I do not have the "Copy non-embedded files..." option selected, I don't think this is an uncommon configuration but I fear that it is incompatible with the AIR deployment workflow.
I have got the files selected in the Project Settings > Actionscript Build Packaging panel, but this doesn't appear to do anything.
