I'm new to FlexUnit and trying to run the tutorial found here: http://flex.apache.org/flexunit/tutorial/flexunit/Unit-1.html

I have FlashBuilder 4.7 Premium at work and I'm doing this on Windows 7 64-bit.

Following the tutorial Unit 1, I can't run the tests because I get a compile-time error "Type was not found or was not a compile-time constant: FlexUnitTestRunnerUI".

The build path had to be adjusted from the default also, since on my system I have C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash Builder 4.7 (64 Bit)\eclipse\plugins\com.adobe.flexbuilder.flexunit_4.7.0.349722\flexunitSwcs\4.5\locale\en_US\FlexUnitTestRunner_rb.swc

but the project is expecting

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash Builder 4.7 (64 Bit)\eclipse\plugins\com.adobe.flexbuilder.flexunit_4.7.0.349722\flexunitSwcs\4.5\locale\en_US\version4locale\

Any help for this Flex newbie is greatly appreciated.

    Might I recommend that you post this on [email blocked]. Since FlexUnit is now owned by Apache, I think it would be good to keep the conversation there.

    I am not sure what build path you are adjusting (FlexUnit doesn't really have that concept but who the heck knows what Adobe broken in Flash Builder) but if you are using FlexUnit 4.7 premium, you might just want to start by making a new Flex project, and then adding a FlexUnit 4.x unit test to the project and verifying it executes as a starting point.

    Happy to continue trying to help you on the Apache list.

    Sigh. Tender decided that you aren't allowed to see the email address of the mailing list I mentioned, so let me say it this way instead:
