My friend installed the exact same DMG image to install the beta version of Adobe Flex Builder 3 beta 2, but when tried to use it, it says that the Beta has expired. We have the exact same hardware, and same software (Mac OS X, 10.4/Tiger). The Flex Builder does not show when it expired in the message (only: Beta Expired). It took me quite a long time to realize that the SDK says:
computer:~ tc3$ /Applications/Adobe\ Flex\ Builder\ 3/sdks/3.0.0/bin/mxmlc thinkcubic.mxml Loading configuration file /Applications/Adobe Flex Builder 3/sdks/3.0.0/frameworks/flex-config.xml This beta will expire on Thu Jan 31 00:00:00 ICT 1465. Error: Beta expired.
While it should be
Loading configuration file /Users/tc4/flex/frameworks/flex-config.xml This beta will expire on Thu Jan 31 00:00:00 ICT 2008.
It expires 543 years ago!. So why does this happen?. One hint: he is Thai. He prefers to use the Thai language on his computer. Thai people use Buddhist calendar, which differs 543 years from the Gregorian calendar.
See at this following settings:
When we change the order to English, then everything is fine. I don’t know whose bug is this, Adobe Flex Builder (the Flex SDK version is OK), Java, or Mac OS X (it is strange because the calendar is not set to Buddhist).

And did you fix the problem, because i’ve got similair problems… Please help!
Yes, as stated in the posting, by rearranging such that English is in the first order solves the problem.
