* These directions are for Windows machines but they should work for Mac as well. The only difference should be the file system paths.
I”ve been testing the new capabilities of Flash Player 11.2 (and FP11 for that matter) and the addition of Stage3D is sick. You can get a breakdown of all the new additions from the release notes found here.
Anyway, I’ve noticed on forums that <many>some</many> people don’t use Flash Builder (I use/love FlashDevelop by the way) and have a hard time targeting newer runtimes of the Flash Player in Flash Professional. As a result I want to show you how to target newer Flash Player runtimes (specifically FP11.2) using Flash Professional CS5. I can attest that this solution works for both Flash Pro CS5 and CS5.5. It may just as easily work for Flash Pro CS4 and earlier, I just haven’t tested it (let me know if you get it to work). This also is not specific to targeting FP11.2, you should be able to do this for any new Flash Player release. Let’s get started.
