Amethyst, Flash and Windows 7
Well - as expected it works fine! Though, it did take me a couple of hours digging to figure out why the Designer and MXML Editor didn’t fire up in Amethyst. Well, of course since I’d just installed Windows 7 on a new Virtual Machine with Visual Studio 2008 - there were none of the usual bits-and-pieces that gradually get installed over time.
The one important piece that was missing was - the Flash Player! It turns out that I’d never installed Amethyst on an O/S without Flash, and I’d never thought to put out a sensible error message if it wasn’t there.
After some time of looking in all the wrong places for the trouble, the proverbial light bulb went on ... doh!
Well, I now put out a nice error message about the absence of the Flash Player, so the time was well spent. I just wish the light bulb had illuminated a bit quicker!
Oh, and yes, I have installed our other IDE, Ruby In Steel, on Windows 7 too...
