    Export Release Build Flash Builder 4.5 fails to load over the web.


      Exported Release Build Application fails to load over the web.  You can reproduce using the following steps:

      1. Create New Flex Project in Trial Flash Builder 4.5.
      2. Use the default Flex 4.5 sdk.
      3. Configure as a web application.
      3. Place the following MXML code in the main application file:
      <?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "utf-8"?>
      <s:Application xmlns:fx = "http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009"
      xmlns:s = "library://ns.adobe.com/flex/spark"
      xmlns:mx = "library://ns.adobe.com/flex/mx"
      minWidth = "955"
      minHeight = "600">

      <!-- Place non-visual elements (e.g., services, value objects) here -->

      <s:TextArea text = "Hello World!" width = "100%" height = "100%">


      3. Save the main application file and Export Release Build to bin-release.
      4. Place all files in bin-release on IIS web server in a web accessible location.
      5. Go to the web accessible location in any browser with newest flash player and view the application's html page.
      Actual Results:
      Flash movie appears blank. Context menu shows Movie Not Loaded. Network traffic shows application main swf downloaded. Framework dependent swfs not downloaded.
      Expected Results:
      Movie loads. Hello World! appears in text box. Context menu does not show Movie Not Loaded. Framework dependent swfs downloaded.
      Workaround (if any):
      Deploy on an Apache web server.

      The tests were run on IIS 7.x (7.0 for one, and 7.5)
      Flex application was built using Flex 4.5.0 SDK pre-bundled release (built-in flex 4.5 with Flash Builder 4.5 trial) on Mac OS X 10.6.7 (10J869)
      Flash Player

      Any idea as to why my exported release build fails? Any help would be appreciated.
