Flashbuilder 4 is sooo slow

Tuesday, March 23. 2010

While I have been using Flex 3 for about 3 years now my first impressions of FlashBuilder 4 are somewhat mixed. I downloaded and installed tbe beta 2 just a week before the release and it is quite fascinating to watch the the thing crawl on its path. Maybe I should just go and get me a shiny new quadcore to get my actioncript editor work in a bearable manner? With all the code highlights and helpfull hinting the thing is quite busy doing its own chores so I have to wait again and again when typing. Frequent actions like - mark a bit of text, copy, click on a number of places in my script and paste the stuff - now have been upgraded to an exercise in patience and keeping my mind focussed. Click on a tab to quickly change to another script and see flash builder go into deep contemplation for some 20 seconds. Wow! Can't work like that.

On the same box flex 3 runs with no nonsense like that. Is it related to running windows 7 (prof.) x64? Searching for other reports of this problem the first I found runs the very same OS and reports the same experience. (German only)
