I can run the tool if I run it through ffdec.jar. But if I choose ffdec.exe it doesn't work.
Hmm. It's very hard to fix this problem without any details. For me it starts... however it is quite slow, but the same when i start the jar file.
flash = ActiveX.createObject(ShockwaveFlash.class, this); call needs sometimes 30 seconds to execute
It's weird because I don't get any logs either.
This is the only log I get: > SEVERE: null com.jpexs.decompiler.flash.gui.Main$OpenFileWorker doInBackground com.jpexs.decompiler.flash.SwfOpenException: Invalid SWF file, wrong signature. at com.jpexs.decompiler.flash.SWF.decompress( at com.jpexs.decompiler.flash.SWF.<init>( at com.jpexs.decompiler.flash.SWF.<init>( at com.jpexs.decompiler.flash.gui.Main$2.doInBackground( at com.jpexs.decompiler.flash.gui.Main$2.doInBackground( at com.jpexs.helpers.CancellableWorker$ at Source) at at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor.runWorker(Unknown Source) at java.util.concurrent.ThreadPoolExecutor$ Source) at Source)
It should not be a problem.
Is it better with the latest nightly build?
