This morning I downloaded and installed the new Flex 3.3 SDK recently released by Adobe. Thanks for the post Ted.

I prefer to load Flex SDK as a runtime shared library but soon found that this was generating a couple of runtime errors when my projects were initialising:

Error #2034: An invalid digest was supplied.
Failed to load RSL framework_3.2.0.3958.swz
Failing over to RSL framework_3.2.0.3958.swf
Flex Error #1001: Digest mismatch with RSL http://myurl/framework_3.2.0.3958.swf. Redeploy the matching RSL or relink your application with the matching library.

Via the project properties I’d set the flex framework to be loaded as a runtime shared library ok and chosen the option to deploy the RSL swf. Flex Builder was deploying the swf, I guess by compiling it from the new SDK source but the error I believe relates to the generated RSLs don’t have the required validation compiled into them.

The solution:

You can just grab the verified RSLs that are included in the new SDK download which you’ll find via the following path:

[Flex SDK folder]/frameworks/rsls/framework_3.3.0.4852.swf
[Flex SDK folder]/frameworks/rsls/framework_3.3.0.4852.swz

Copy those files into your html-template folder and then be sure to specify the relative paths to those 2 RSLs via the [Your Project] > Properties > Flex Build Path > Library Path > Flex 3.3 > framework.swc > RSL URL

Hope that saves you some time with that error 🙂

    Nice post, this helped me out of a jam this morning. Code I hadn’t looked at in 6 months suddenly getting this error on a simple change. Followed your advice and it fixed the problem.

Thanks.By the way, if you comiple using that comipler arg, the resultant swf weights almost 200ks while if you comiple without it, it will weight near 160ks less (in my test 30ks aprox).Another thing you can try, is loading your font library (swf) setting a trustable LoaderContext:loader.loaderContext = new LoaderContext(false, ApplicationDomain.currentDomain, SecurityDomain.currentDomain);This should work too and will keep your swf files lighter.

    Punter, you’re entitled to your wrodlview just as surely as I’m entitled to mine. Still, the facts are pretty clear: Bernardi is holding up the sacrifices made by our diggers as a reason to oppose mandatory pre-commitment. It is he who is linking the two.And quarantining welfare leads to a reduction in the amount of welfare available to an individual to use. Or are you advocating welfare quarantining, at the same time as you criticise governments for telling people what they can and can’t do? Sounds somewhat hypocritical to me you can’t have it both ways.On that point: one of the roles of government is, indeed, to tell us what we can and can’t do. They’re called laws. Ever tried buying alcohol when drunk? Or tried to explain to a police officer why you were speeding, or not wearing your seat belt? In this case, the government is NOT telling you you can’t play the pokies; they’re telling you that if you want to bet big on the pokies, then you need to decide first how much you are willing to lose. Otherwise, stick to a low-spending poker machine. Sounds reasonable to me, but then again, I’ve actually read the report that contains the proposed reforms and recommendations.Have you, Punter? Do you even know what you’re opposing?


    Täällähän on arvovaltaisia vieraita. Terve dzhei-dzhei! EU on siirtymässä täyteen diktatuuriin. Tottakai pystyssä pysyvät keskusjohtoa tottelevat nukkehallitukset. Milloin alkaa opposition kieltäminen vaikka jonkin tekaistun fobisuus-/kiihottavuuspykälän perusteella? Olet tervetullut tänne kentälle taistelemaan rinnallani Euroopan vapauden ja Suomen itsenäisyyden puolesta.

    After reading about so many recent cases where priests have been molesting young boys, I was beginning to wonder if some religious affiliations were associated with ignoring women.
