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


Hi Jeff,

for IDEs, if a part from flex you have backend code (maybe Java?) my
recommendation is to switch to IntelliJ IDEA since the Java/Flex support is
very professional. We switched many years ago from Flash Builder since it
supports as well maven with flex. I think it was a great decision since we
have a huge  code base like you.

For Royale, you can go as well IntelliJ (but there's no official support,
just what Flex support gives you a long some hacks people do).
For Royale, better to go with Moonlight or VSCode + Extension (NextGenAS).

Best,

Carlos
