Flash 11.2 came out and it has two very awesome features: right click events and mouse locking. So, I had to test it out. However, (as of this post) FlashDevelop doesn’t officially support 11.2.

I have looked around the web to find a tutorial of some sorts to configure flashdevelop for 11.2 but all I could find were separate small for other versions, so I decided to find the way myself. I’ll be writing this tutorial to help others who are in my situation.

  1. Get the files.
    • You can find the installation links here.
    • Launch the “Release Candidate installer” for your OS. This is required to be able to play 11.2 content on your browsers
    • Download the “Release Candidate Global SWC”:
      • into “\FlashDevelop\Tools\flexsdk\frameworks\libs\player\11.2\” (create the 11.2 folder as it won’t exist)
      • save as “playerglobal.swc”.
    • Download the “Standalone Debugger”:
      • into “\FlashDevelop\Tools\flexlibs\runtimes\player\11.2\win\” (create the 11.2\win folders inside “player”)
      • save as “FlashPlayerDebugger.exe”.
  2. Configure FlashDevelop
    • Go to Tools -> Program Settings
    • Click on the “FlashViewer” plugin settings page
    • Set the “External Player Path” to point to your recently downloaded “11.2\win\FlashPlayerDebugger.exe” file.
  3. Configure your projects
    • Go to project properties by right clicking the project’s name.
    • Set the platform version to 11.2.
    • Add the following line to “Additional Compiler Options”:
  4. Done, test your project!

I followed your simple instructions to the letter, but in project properties i can't select platform version 11.2 - only 11.
I have the exact same problem with the AIR 3.2 sdk that i overlaid the recently downloaded flexsdk version 4.6

Any pointers as to possible problems would be greatly appreciated

That's strange, I just installed the latest version ( this one: ... .1-RTM.exe ) and it worked for me. I didn't install flexsdk/air/anything before it, though, I let it download them by itself.
