Flash Debug Version

by Jim Oct 22, 2007 3:00 PM

I started working with Flex again after a little hiatus and suddenly I couldn't debug:


Flex Builder cannot locate the required debug version of the Flash Player. You may need to install the debug version of Flash Player 9.0 or reinstall Flex Builder. Do you want to try to debug with the current version?

The flash player seems to have a new version every week and I vaguely remember installing a newer one to view some neato photo manipulation program that a coworker sent me to.

Thinking that I needed a previous build, I tried installing flashplayer9r16_win_debug.exe from the previous version archive (which is handy for testing purposes.) No luck; this didn't appear to do anything at all.

What you need to do is go to the Adobe Flash Player Support Center and download the "Windows Flash Player 9 ActiveX control content debugger" for your browser. This will uninstall previous versions and make everything right.
