I installed an earlier version of FB 4.5 without help. I also tried new work space, new project sources etc - no help.
I suspect it has to do with some collision with internal resources.
Questions to the Adobe team
- How can I inspect where the FB.exe is looping?
- How can I inspect the interaction between FB and its Java VM?
I have also noticed that during this time period, for me at least, the memory usage of FlashBuilder.exe increases at a constant rate while the file is open, even if I am not interacting with Flash Builder. At some point Flash builder becomes very sluggish to respond, but if I close the editor with that large file, everything goes back to normal.
I rencently had the same kind of troubles (FB hanging when opening a file).
The solution for me was:
* Disable the Design Mode view ( Menu Window -> Enable Design Mode)
* Restart Flash Builder
It's worth giving it a try.
You sir, are a gentleman and a scholar. That fixed it! I had a pretty strong feeling it was design mode, but I couldn't figure out how to turn the blasted thing off. I was expecting it to be in the preferences somewhere.
Thanks a lot.
I was hoping this will solve my problem but apparently, my FB is already running in design mode disabled.
