#2074 Flex Compiler feature doesn't work
Author: user Fancy2209
Date created:
Type: bug
Visibility: Everybody
Assigned to:
Labels: Flex
State: upgraded Help

> What steps will reproduce the problem? 1. Download the latest Flex SDK from Apache 2. Set the Flex SDK Path on FFDEC 3. Attempt to edit AS 4. It'll say Flex SDK not found even if pointed to the right folder > What is the expected output? What do you see instead? It'd recognise the Flex SDK and work. > What version of the product are you using? Is it "nightly build"? Which operating system do you have? 18.5.0 and 18.5.0 nightly build 2555 were both tested > Please provide any additional information below. If the problem is related to a SWF file, attach it here, otherwise we can't help you. Jpexs searches for mxmlc.exe when the SDK has a mxmlc.bat, though I attempted changing it and while it progressed, it throwed a error popup with nothing in it, implying there is more to the issue than searching for the wrong extension.
I can try to search for the bat file, but keep in mind that this feature is very experimental (even more experimental than the direct editing with FFDec compiler) Also it won't work for obfuscated files. It has many limits. So I hope nobody uses it... It was a try to call Flex, but calling Flex for only part of the SWF (current AS script) is very hard to implement, I don't even believe it worked in the past. So do not expect anything useful...
Please try nightly 2676, it should be better. However I still cannot recommend Flex compiler of regular use, it is a "hack" how to use it this way and may not be functional in many case.

I am sorry for not checking on this earlier, yeah what I was trying doesn't work, the swf I was editing is way too big, still it does not complain about not finding it though
