Developing non-web applications in Flex 1.5 - Macromedia Flex General Discussion

Hello, I am a newbie to Flex and I have purchased a copy of Flex Builder 1.5. I am somewhat familiar with VB and I can see that Flex is quite like VB (as to toolboxes and stuff).

    Default Developing non-web applications in Flex 1.5

    Hello,

    I am a newbie to Flex and I have purchased a copy of Flex Builder 1.5. I am
    somewhat familiar with VB and I can see that Flex is quite like VB (as to
    toolboxes and stuff). However I want to develop an app that doesn't require
    internet, more like a .SWF application in Flash. Is it possible to develop an
    application in Flex 1.5, and if yes how? Also I have noticed that to run your
    internet based app you need a web server, I instead used a location on my hard
    disk, however it still persisted to renew the location on a web server. I would
    appreciate any help.

    Thank you,
    Ian

    I understand this is theoretically possible using a "projector" program, but is
    not the kind of app flex is designed for. Also the license requires a Flex
    server.

    Flex 2.o does not require the Flex server but still is intended for browser
    delivery.

    If you really need this you can probably figure out a way to do it. Remember
    that Flex ultimately produces a SWF, so take it from there.
