I vaguely remember that some months ago I saw an advert promising me a chance to get a flash builder for free from Adobe. I was probably thinking YouTube flash movies, flash animations, or something, so I clicked Yes Please, and forgot about it.

Now I have received my price... yeah wouldn't you know it; if I NEED it, I don't win, but if it is useless to me, I win! Oh dear, oh dear; this is WAY over my head. Adobe Flash Builder 4 Standard does *not* build "flash movies" or "animations"; it builds applications! I will have to CODE, to use it!! (who said "ha-ha!"?) And just to rub salt into 'your' wound: I have registered it; no one else can get it instead. It is lost.

-or is it?

Is there any way 'we', the DonationCoder community can save it and make it become useful?
Or is it really  lost  lost?  tellme

The downloaded file is 380MB but is just a container-exe and can be broken down into a lot of reasonable sized files. The installer itself is merely 793KB.

I have registered it; no one else can get it instead.

What did registering it entail? Is it one of those programs that locks to your hardware signature? Can it be "unregistered"? Like if you wanted to move it to a different computer.

And on a completely different approach, I suggest you contact Adobe and ask to speak to their developer relations manager. Likely such a person would be more than willing to make the necessary arrangements to see that it goes to a good home given that it would give them some good PR/exposure on a developer community like DC's.

Adobe Acrobat has an Unregister option that is designed to allow moving license X to Machine Y. Acrobat puts the option in either the help or tools menu iirc.

Thanks for the answers.


FYI: I forgot to mention that registering is for U.S citizens only
... I know, don't ask. The address I gave was maybe a little inaccurate!
