    Flash Builder debug swf only

    masterkrang

      Is there a way to set up a Flash Builder Actionscript 3 project where I don't have to debug the swf's in the browser? I'd just like to debug the swf by itself, so ideally when I click debug, a swf pops up, not the browser with the swf contained inside. Thanks.

          Go to Project Properties -> ActionScript Compiler and uncheck "Generate HTML Wrapper".

           

          Now if you are in Flash Builder 4.5, on debug, the SWF will open up in the bundled standalone flash player (you can point to another standalone player in Preferences -> Flash Builder -> Debug).

           

          In Flash Builder 4, debug launch will ask the OS to open the default associated program with .SWF files. If you associate .SWF with a standalone player (do that by "Open With" on Win and "Get Info" on Mac), then you're good to go.
