Windows 7 beta, Flex Builder and debugging.

I recently got a new laptop and I decided to install Windows 7 on it. After installing Flex Builder I thought everything was ok until I needed to debug one of my projects. I got this annoying message: Waiting for Flash Player to connect to debugger. It was timing out every single time. Pretty annoying! After a couple of attempts of changing UAC settings, looking up ports etc I found a solution here. Basically what you need to do is specify where your application is running. Right click on the flash content -> Debugger, select Other Machine,  enter “127.0.0.1″ and click Connect. Also make sure you have the debug player installed.

    the interface of Windows 7 is great but in my opinion Windows XP is still a very solid and stable operating system. Right now, I would never give up XP for Windows 7.

I’ve got the debug player version 9.0.124 installed. Upon changing the debugger settings to my local IP address, I get the following alert from the browser:
