Flash Player Debugger 13 Installation Process

I did the following to successfully install the flash player debugger for Flash Builder 4.7:

  1. Uninstalled flash player on windows using the directions here
  2. Went to adobe debugger downloads site and downloaded plugins and standalone projectors
  3. Manually transferred the standalone debugger exes into flash CS6 and flashbuilder 4.7 directory locations
  4. Went to the flash builder project output folder and associated the swf files with the debug flash player

Step 3
Located the flash builder 4.7 player directory which is installed at the following location on my machine:
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash Builder 4.7 (64 Bit)\player\win\13.0

Copied the downloaded flash player plugins for version 13.0 and also the debugger standalone projector to this location

Located the flash professional CS6 debugger player directory which is installed at the following location on my machine:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Flash CS6\Players\Debug

Copied the downloaded flash player debugger standalone projector to this location

Copied the downloaded flash player standalone projector to this location:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Flash CS6\Players

Step 4
Finally had to manually associate flash builder generated swf file with the latest debugger player by doing the following:

  1. Select a swf file
  2. Right click and choose Open With
  3. Browse to the C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash Builder 4.7 (64 Bit)\player\win\13.0 directory
  4. Select FlashPlayerDebugger.exe

After that, any error message that Flash builder can not find the debugger version of the flash player should be gone.
