FlashBuilder Debug Configurations

I am using FB Burrito and have followed the getting started pages to create a test app. I created the debug configuration for the Mobile Application - on the main tab, I selected 'On Device' and entered the Target IP address and the device password, and selected save device password.


When I run the application I get the message:


Error occurred while launching the installed application on the device:
Error: Missing argument for -password.


When I go back into the debug configuration for this application, there is no field for password.



Why is their no agument passed for password?

Why do I not see the password field in the debug configuration screen?

Re: FlashBuilder Debug Configurations

I don't use an IDE, but does the screenshot of the "Run Configurations" dialog that is just above the only occurrence of the word "password" in this page look anything like what you have?  It has a field for password on it.

Re: FlashBuilder Debug Configurations

See this thread




and make sure you are really setting options and/or running the configuration (run vs. debug configuration) that you intend to.  The settings screens look very similar, and there are differences in hot key bindings between IDE's & Windows/Mac.

Re: FlashBuilder Debug Configurations

The Debug config dialog doesn't show a scrollbar, but can be sized too small. On mine, the "save password" checkbox is only displayed halfway. Try resizing the config dialog to see if the password field might be below the IP address field and simply not displayed because of bad sizing.

Re: FlashBuilder Debug Configurations



try doing this:


In the left panel where your projects are listed, right click on your project and go to properties. then click on run/debug settings. then double click on your debug profile. then in the new menu see if there is a password field. type in the password and hit apply and close. that should do it. good luck!

Re: FlashBuilder Debug Configurations

I got the app to work, not quite sure what I did wrong before, I think I was mixing up the debug and run configurations, but I know I had definitely entered a password previously.


What I just did was to go into run configurations and I could enter a password which I did, then clicked on the Common tab and selected Run to display in the favorites menu. The app then worked.


The run configuration shows the password field, the debug configuration does not show the password field.

Re: FlashBuilder Debug Configurations

I just re-read one of the previous replies and it was a case of the configuration window being too small, when I made it larger, I was able to see the password field in the debug configurations.


Thank you
