So, here's an interesting issue. And my apology in advance if
it has been reported before. But I have spent the better part of
two days installing / uninstalling / cleaning / reinstalling.
Nevertheless, still having the problem with Flex Builder 3:
After launching Flex Builder 3, I create a new project and
'right click" on the project name in the Flex Navigator in order to
launch the 'Properties' dialog. Under the Resource Tab of the
Properties page, various fields are truncated and the combo boxes
are all jacked up. In fact on the Flex Build Path tab, it is
completely blank. Basically, throughout the Flex Builder IDE, I
have various fields missing or acting strangely.
So... to this point I have pretty much uninstalled,
uninstalled the JRE (thinking this is related to java), cleaned the
system registry, uninstalled flash players, edited the
flexbuilder.ini with a "-clean", installed Vista Updates (so now
this system is on SP1) basically... I have done everything humanly
possible short of formating the system to start fresh.
Running Windows Vista x64 ; 8GB of RAM; NVidia 8800 Video
To ensure I wasn't completely losing my mind... I have
installed on a notebook system and everything ran like a charm. So,
having scoured through these forums and googling the issue to
death... I just can't seem to come up with the answer.
If anyone can help me it would be supremely
You are probably also using the SetPoint logitech drivers on
Vista x64, which have a known conflict with Eclipse 3.3.
The 'solution' is to a) get rid of the drivers (but I love my
DiNovo Edge!) or b) Use Eclipse 3.4M4 and the plugin. However, this
isn't fully supported, so they are sometimes issues, particularly
with design mode, so generally I use FB3, and then switch to
eclipse when I need to change a setting (not optimal I know, but
not as frequent as all that, average once a day for me). Or simply
edit the settings with a text editor.
Or c) run virtualization like VMWARE etc. and just do it all
(Caveat I have never tried a) personally, but have read that
it does work.)
Wow... who would have thought. Indeed it ws related to
actually a couple of things. 1. Had to remove the SetPoint Logitech
Drivers (not a huge loss really - it was more of a gaming thing for
me). 2. I run dual screen and had been using a product called
Ultramon to extend the windows taskbar.
Once I uninstalled SetPoint and closed Ultramon - Whammo...
Flex worked perfectly. Good news though, can still keep my Logitech
G15 drivers in place for that occasional Worlds of Warcraft
