How to install the latest build on Windows?

LesGWoolsey
The latest release of the Flex SDK has a bug in it which breaks my app. I'd
like to test the fix but haven't been able to.  Can someone tell me how to
install the latest build of the SDK onto a Windows system?  The regular
install doesn't allow for that and all the instructions I can find online
are for Linux or Mac so they aren't much help.

 

I did try simply expanding the zip file from the latest build over top of my
current 14.0 install but that seemed to break a bunch of things.  Would it
work to just extract the swc files and overwrite the ones in the 14.0
install?

..if so, open it and right-click - there's an option there to include
dev builds in the selection

I tried using the installer but it only lists Air 24 Beta. I tried Right-clicking and selected show dev builds but it still only shows Air 24 Beta - not Air 25 Beta.

Unfortunately it seems I need Air 25 in order to run under the IOS simulator on the Mac.

Since I couldn't use the installer, I made a duplicate of a working SDK folder and copies all the AIR25 stuff into it.  When I try to add that to Flex Builder, it says there is no SDK in the directory.

OK. I found the answer. You have to use the cp command in Terminal. Just dragging from the Finder doesn't work.
