HFCD 3/4 Trial Period Extended

with 6 comments

HFCD 3 and 4 trial period is going to expire this weekend, so I’m putting out another update. The update extends the period to the end of November.



Before you install this update, please do the following:

  1. Uninstall the Flex/Flash Builder plugin. You can do it by clicking “Help” –> “Software Updates” –> “Manage Configuration”. Then right-click the “HellFire Compiler” plugin to uninstall (please check out the screenshot below).
  2. Delete the “HellFire Compiler 3” and “HellFire Compiler 4” directory.
  3. If you used the Mac installer, you may also want to remove USER_HOME/Library/Receipts/hfcd3.pkg and USER_HOME/Library/Receipts/hfcd4.pkg.


The last update wasn’t quite useful because I messed up at one place in the code when I was trying to clean up the code. That totally messed up the SWC project support. But it’s now fixed. Also, the socket connection between hfcd and Flex/Flash Builder is more stable now that you can start hfcd and Flex/Flash Builder in any sequence.

After the installation, please check out this previous post (How To Setup Your Projects for HFCD). Most developers forgot to close and open their projects after switching to HFCD. A few of them forgot to explicitly specify files that are not managed by Flex/Flash Builder in the “HFCD FileSet” view.

  1. Hi there,

    Thanks for this it’s quite nice and works well with my libraries but I get an error 1137: Incorrect number of arguments. Expected no more than 0 when using it with a blank Flash builder 4 Beta 2 AIR project.

    Any idea how to resolve this issue? The project is new with nothing but the application wrapper.

    • Okay, I’ll take a look. I’ll email you when I have a fix for that. Thanks.

  2. Every time I try to re-open my project I get this error message.

    An internal error occurred during: “Open Project”.
    Attempted to beginRule: R/, does not match outer scope rule: P/Sku_UI

    This is the first time I have attempted to run HFCD. I have installed using “ant server client” and installed the plugin.

    • I just googled the error messsage and found that it’s a common Eclipse problem but nobody seems to be able to pinpoint the root cause?
