Re: [Announce] Apache Flex SDK Installer 3.3.1 Released

Thanks for all your work on this Piotr.

Unfortunately, installed 3.3.1 is failing for me at the point of "Flash SDK"
download (for AIR29).  I'm running this under Windows 10 and I've tried it
on two different systems.  Coming back to it a day later hasn't helped
either (I know sometimes hashes are out of sync).

This is the error it's outputting:

Hi,

Make sure that any antivirus not blocking anything. Check if you are using
cache.

Thanks,

Re: [Announce] Apache Flex SDK Installer 3.3.1 Released

Hi Piotr,

On one of my systems, it's almost bare bones.  No 3rd party anti-virus or
firewall.  Just an AIR dev environment for me to test network code against.

I'm not sure what you mean by the cache, but if it's the folder created by
the Flex installer here, I've tried closing the app, deleting the whole
folder it and trying again many times:
C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\org.apache.flex.installapacheflex


Thanks,
Bink

What about system firewall ? I meant here cache when you right click on the
drop down list. Let me check if I can download right now SDK.

Re: [Announce] Apache Flex SDK Installer 3.3.1 Released

Ha neat, I didn't even know there was a right click option

Safe to say, I have *not* had cache enabled.  Should I, or is that one
potential problem?  

I've also now disabled the Windows firewall, but before these changes (and
still now) it had started throwing a new error when I hit Next on the first
screen (after a momentary wait).  I did get this particular a few times over
the past day and it would seem I just had to wait a while before trying
again.

I got exactly the same error. Maybe we should wait a bit. Not sure what is
happening now!

I managed to get to the next stage again.  Disabling the Windows firewall has
not helped.  I'm interested to know how you go.  You know, is it everyone,
or just me?

Some problems, like the ability to get the CGI script from Apache, affect everyone.  Usually that means that the server for the CGI script is having problems.

Other problems seem to affect people who are geographically far from the servers.  Often they have more success using Apache Ant to install than the installer.  But at least one person had to manually download all of the big downloads and cache them locally.

So, I think you should try Apache Ant next.  Get the binary artifact, expand it, and run "ant -f installer.xml".

HTH,

Thansk Alex.  I was eventually able to make it work using *ant* as you
suggested.

The install failed frequently, when a redirect from HTTP to HTTPS occurred
on a file *get*.  To get around this, I created the local.properties file in
the root directory of Flex.  Then for only the problem files, I would add
properties pointing to a local version of the file I'd downloaded using the
URL reported in the error, like below.  Note, the ones here were the ones I
specifically had issues with.


osmf.url.server=file:///C:/Development/_SDK/
osmf.url.folder=Build
osmf.url.file=OSMF2_0.swc

afe.url.server=file:///C:/Development/_SDK/
afe.url.folder=Build
afe.url.file=afe.jar

agl.url.server=file:///C:/Development/_SDK/
agl.url.folder=Build
agl.url.file=aglj40.jar

fontkit.url.server=file:///C:/Development/_SDK/
fontkit.url.folder=Build
fontkit.url.file=flex-fontkit.jar

rideau.url.server=file:///C:/Development/_SDK/
rideau.url.folder=Build
rideau.url.file=rideau.jar

OK, good to know.  Interestingly, all of those are served by SourceForge.

Glad to know you were finally successful.
