installing flex builder 3

My next "big thing" is Flex. I'll be starting a new job in December and will be working with this great bit of Adobe technology. I decided to get a head start and get it installed. Took me a while, but eventually I worked it out thanks to the above link.

So, to cut a long story short;
  • get the latest version of Eclipse 3 (I'm using 3.3.1.1)
  • get the latest version of Flex 3 Builder beta Plugin (I'm using Flex 3 Builder public beta 2)
  • install Eclipse as usual
  • run the Flex installer
  • use the shortcut under Programs -> Adobe to start Eclipse
If you can run the New Flex Project wizard, everything should be ready to rock. I was using Eclipse 3.0 and it just wasn't happening, but once I got the latest software it was fine.

Well, that's as far as I've got so far, I'm sure there'll be plenty more flexing going here in the future.
