I decided to promote my Flex IDE installation from Flex Builder 3 and Gumbo to latest release "Flash Builder 4".
I downloaded the application installer from: http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/index.cfm?product=flash_builder
When I ran the installation, logged on as an Administrative user on my Windows XP desktop PC, the installer would run, but crash out mid installation with the following Error...
NOTE: The below is for Mac only at the moment - but I will try and obtain the Windows compatible versions.
I have managed to obtain trial copys of 2 of Adobes latest products Gumbo, also known as Flex 4 and Catalyst (formerly Thermo).
If you would like to try these, please follow the links below:
Gumbo : http://www.123adapt.com/adobe/Gumbo_mac_installer_215018f.dmg
Serial : http://www.123adapt.com/adobe/serial.rtf
Also note that, this is authentic trial software from Adobe and NOT Illegally downloaded!!!
If you have any problems with these - let me know.
If you're learning Flex or just interested in it's capabilities - the following resources should come in useful:
Flex Component Explorer
Flex Style Explorer
Advanced Data Visualisation using Flex
Charting Demos using ILOG Elixir
And for inspiration...
The BBC has decided that in order to gain cross-platform compatability that they are now writing their widgets using the Adobe Flex and AIR platforms!!
