    flashbuilder has stopped working

    dsdsdsdsd Level 1

      Last night I was using flashbuilder; then went I went to bed I started encoding with Media Encoder; when I woke up this morning my computer (winXP) was turned off; now flashbuilder will not start.

       

      Here is a log generated from double-clicking the flashbuilder icon on my desktop:

          Check post #7 here:

          Also, this looks like a generic Eclipse bug, not only Flash Builder. So googling

          eclipse "no more handles"

          may yield more relevant results.

            Jon, thanks for responding ...


            I 'fixed' it last night (2AM)

             

            FIRST: I tried re-installing flashbuilder, but without uninstalling first ... did not work

             

            SECOND: I used winxp add/remove programs to uninstall flashbuilder, then I re-installed flashbuilder ... worked

             

            I should note that my eclipse was working all the while. I know that they are separate softwares, but nevertheless I figured that I would mention it.

             

            Also, because my flashbuilder is basically out-of-the-box new, un-installing was acceptable. But for someone who has added plugins, or done some customized configurations to their flashbuilder, un-installing would NOT be a good idea.

              Unless FB has been installed into an existing Eclipse installation they are seperate installs. So one Eclipse may be working, but FB's may not. A reinstall often fixes the problem, but is rather a sledgehammer approach. Often simply rebuilding a workspace or removing temporary files will help.

               

              Anyway, glad you fixed it.
