Windows 7 x64, FFDec 4.0.4 (2014-11-23) from the zip archive, JRE 1.7.0_51. I don't have Flash ActiveX installed and the program doesn't work. When started via ffdec.exe, it shows the splash screen for about a minute and then an error message pops up: "An error occurred while starting the application." When I click OK, javaw.exe and javactivex_1417132739010.exe processes don't terminate, i.e. they become zombies. When started via ffdec.bat, it shows this: C:\Users\user\Downloads\ffdec_4.0.4>ffdec.bat Nov 28, 2014 3:48:47 AM com.jpexs.decompiler.flash.gui.View execInEventDispatch SEVERE: null java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException at java.awt.EventQueue.invokeAndWait(Unknown Source) at java.awt.EventQueue.invokeAndWait(Unknown Source) at javax.swing.SwingUtilities.invokeAndWait(Unknown Source) at com.jpexs.decompiler.flash.gui.View.execInEventDispatch( at com.jpexs.decompiler.flash.gui.Main.showModeFrame( at com.jpexs.decompiler.flash.gui.Main.main( Caused by: com.jpexs.javactivex.ActiveXException: The file specified for the ActiveX control does not exist at com.jpexs.javactivex.ActiveXControl.readResult( at com.jpexs.javactivex.ActiveXControl.<init>( at com.jpexs.javactivex.ActiveXControl.<init>( at com.jpexs.javactivex.ActiveX$MyHandler.<init>( at com.jpexs.javactivex.ActiveX.createObject( at com.jpexs.decompiler.flash.gui.player.FlashPlayerPanel.<init>( at com.jpexs.decompiler.flash.gui.MainFrameClassic.<init>( at com.jpexs.decompiler.flash.gui.Main.ensureMainFrame( at com.jpexs.decompiler.flash.gui.Main$ at java.awt.event.InvocationEvent.dispatch(Unknown Source) at java.awt.EventQueue.dispatchEventImpl(Unknown Source) at java.awt.EventQueue.access$200(Unknown Source) at java.awt.EventQueue$ Source) at java.awt.EventQueue$ Source) at Method) at$1.doIntersectionPrivilege(Unknown Source) at java.awt.EventQueue.dispatchEvent(Unknown Source) at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpOneEventForFilters(Unknown Source) at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpEventsForFilter(Unknown Source) at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpEventsForHierarchy(Unknown Source) at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpEvents(Unknown Source) at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpEvents(Unknown Source) at Source) C:\Users\user\Downloads\ffdec_4.0.4>
Works in 4.0.5. Thanks!
