Removing App from simulator using Burrito GUI

I don't like command line. Is it possible to UNINSTALL an app using the project in Flash Builder Burrito?

Re: Removing App from simulator using Burrito GUI

Afaik this is not possible. So looks like you need to stick with the commandline. To be honest, to remove an app the commandline is not all that complicatet. If you don't like commandline try http://www.studiochris.us/software/fruit-bat/ which has been posted to the forums a while back...

Re: Removing App from simulator using Burrito GUI



willy is correct that uninstalling an application via command line is pretty straight forward. however if you do decide to uninstall via Flash Builder Burrito, it is possible as well. do the following:


Go to Run > Run Configurations and then it should look exactly like your debug configuration does. Click on the configuration for you project under Mobile Application. Go down to the section labeled Lanch Method: On Device. Where it says Deployment Method, choose Uninstall. Then hit Apply. Then finally hit Run. It will uninstall your application from the device.


So from now one when you hit Run > Run it will uninstall the application from your device. And if you go to Run > Debug it will install and debug your application as normal.


hope that helps. good luck!

You may not have seen (or remembered) my previous post about using a web browser to access the simulator and uninstall.  It's quite easy.
