I'm having troubles debugging an AIR application. FDB starts to run and i get a command box up for half a second before it close and flashdevelop says its waiting to connect. The app is just a hello world app using the default AIR Flex 3 template that comes with beta 5. I'm using the Flex 3 beta 3 SDK with FlashDevelop 3 beta 5 and all version of the Flash Debug Player (Plugin, ActiveX and stand-alone). Is there anything else that needs to be done to get AIR working in FlashDevelop? Below is the output information from FlashDevelop.

Running process: C:\Program Files\FlashDevelop\FirstRun\Tools\fdbuild\fdbuild.exe "F:\Code\Personal Development\FDAIR\FDAIR\FDAIR.as3proj" -ipc 45750e32-6628-4c2c-ab69-ac33d51e70c6 -compiler "C:\Program Files\FlashDevelop\Flex 3 b3 SDK" -library "C:\Program Files\FlashDevelop\FirstRun\Library" -cp "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash CS3\en\Configuration\ActionScript 3.0\Classes" -cp "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash CS3\en\Configuration\Component Source\ActionScript 3.0\User Interface" -cp "C:\Program Files\FlashDevelop\AS3 Classes" -cp "F:\Code\.AS Classes\AS3"

Ensure that:
1. you compiled your Flash movie with debugging on, and
2. you are running the Debugger version of the Flash Player.

and the complete AIR template for AIR beta 3 is here:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<application xmlns="">


the templates to update are located in:
