Re: Flex Installer - Air 29 - OSMF Fail (Windows)

Hi Piotr,

I didn't mean to direct any ire to the team, I do know it's volunteer-only and believe me, I appreciate your offer to look at the installer.  I'm also very thankful for the work that the open source community has done to help the Flex SDK stay alive.  I'm also watching the Royale project advances and it's impressive.  My mood was more directed at Adobe (who isn't even here, so that was pointless of me) concerning the deactivation of all Flash Builder 4.6 licenses.

I guess a more productive thing for me to ask is what development tooling is used aside from Flash Builder?  I understand you can edit the source with any text editor and build via command-line, is that what most people do these days?  We've always used FB and the integrated build and debug.  I've seen a couple of IDEs here and there but I haven't really been able to tell if any tool or process has become standardized.  We're entirely on Windows (for dev) here.

Thank you,

Hi Jeff,

We are all volunteers, so fixing things does require some time. I'm working
on that and hope to find out some solution. If not I will probably post
some finding on Development list. Will see what happen after brainstorming.

Thanks for the input,
