Installer license agreements list empty

Jeff Gomes
I just tried to install a new copy of the SDK so I could overlay the
latest Harman release.  When I get to the License Agreements step, the
left pane is completely empty.  I'm guessing Adobe must have moved
something.  Is this fixable?

I have the same issue as well. I keep an archive of Flex 4.16.1 with AIR 32
as a clean install to copy for new versions.

Thanks for the tip.  I finally figured out that I still have a version
like that, so for now I do the same thing.  Not a confidence builder,
though!

I debugged into it.  Apache moved downloads to a new domain (downloads.a.o instead of a.o/dist)  We use URLLoader to fetch the license data.  We get a 302 redirect back.  I thought URLLoader would follow the redirect.

Ideas for a workaround are welcome.

Re: Installer license agreements list empty

Following redirects is supposed to be the default behavior for the
URLRequest class.  So I don't know why it would fail unless that
property was deliberately set to false.

Re: Installer license agreements list empty

Alex Harui-2
I misread the code.  We are using the custom loader which apparently doesn't handle the redirect.  We'd have to cut a new release to get this to work again.  You should be able to use the Ant-based installer as an alternative.

Hi, is there a way that you could share your archive of flex 4.16.1
I am helping a client with an old app, but I have no backup of the archive.

thanks
Alberto

Hi, did you try with this
https://blogs.apache.org/flex/entry/apache-flex-4-16-1 ? From there you can
reach the flex version archive you need.

Re: Installer license agreements list empty

Alex Harui-2
Hi.

For various reasons, Apache Flex provides packages that are different than what Adobe Flex provided.  Adobe Flex could just be unzipped and pointed to from an IDE.  With Apache Flex there is an additional step:  the Adobe dependencies (playerglobal.swc and Adobe AIR SDK) have to be downloaded and installed separately.   The Apache Flex Installer that is referenced in the blog post that Angelo links to is one way to make it easier to download and install those Adobe bits.  Unfortunately, the installer is currently broken due to Apache re-organizing their URLs and the Installer using a downloader that can't handle the redirect.

The blog post also links to the source package which is the official release package because Apache recommends that users consume source packages and compile the packages themselves in order to validate that the resulting binaries are safe to use.  But we also provide pre-compiled binary packages here [1].  However, they still need the Adobe bits to be downloaded and installed.  With the Installer currently being broken, the alternative is to use Apache Ant to download and install the Adobe bits.  The instructions are in the readme under " Using the Binary Distribution".

While it is technically possible for someone to take an Apache Flex SDK with the Adobe bits installed and zip it up and share it so that it is packaged more like the Adobe Flex releases, that someone isn't supposed to do that according to the terms and conditions agreed to when installing the Adobe bits, unless they have an agreement with Adobe for redistribution of Adobe Flash and Adobe AIR SDKs.

In summary, if you need to get Apache Flex 4.16.1 working before we fix the Installer, it is probably fastest to follow the instructions in [1] to get the Apache bits and add the Adobe bits via Ant.  The AIR SDKs have significantly grown in size since the Adobe Flex days so the download is going to be really big, plus the combined bits might be Windows or Mac-specific.

I wish it was easier, and sorry for the hassle,
-Alex

I' have followed the instructions on that document without luck.
I have change some variables value and made it to compile but when I try to
prepare it to use it in the IDE i get the following error:

This is the ant command I executed:
 ant -f installer.xml -Dflash.sdk.version=32.0 -Dair.sdk.version=32.0


:\flex-sdk3> ant -f installer.xml -Dflash.sdk.version=32.0
-Dair.sdk.version=32.0
Buildfile: C:\flex-sdk3\installer.xml
      [get] Getting:

      [get] To: C:\flex-sdk3\sdk-installer-config-4.0.xml

BUILD FAILED
C:\flex-sdk3\installer.xml:210: Reference flash.sdk.swfversion.32 not found.

It worked for me on my Mac.  I will try Windows tomorrow.

Add the -v option so we can see more details.

     ant -v -f installer.xml -Dflash.sdk.version=32.0 -Dair.sdk.version=32.0

Thanks,

In reply to this post by albertolo
I tried it on Windows too and it worked for me.

Could it be that you expanded the binary zip into an existing folder that had some other files in it?  If you want to debug it, try adding the -v option and post a link to the output

     ant -v -f installer.xml -Dflash.sdk.version=32.0 -Dair.sdk.version=32.0

If you want to try a workaround, try running:

     ant -f installer.xml -Dflash.sdk.version=32.0 -Dair.sdk.version=32.0 -Dplayerglobal.version=32.0

HTH,
