Hi, I'm a complete and utter newbie when it comes to flash game programming and I'm struggling a bit with the first step. I downloaded the Flex SDK and I'm now trying to use the compilers in it to compile a very simple mxml file. The problem is I don't know how. All the tutorials I've seen tell you to navigate to the directory that the file is in and use the command mxmlc main.mxml. When i do this i get the message:- "'mxmlc' is not recognised as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file." Can anyone shed some light on where I'm going wrong? Thanks

Make sure to close any console windows you have, and open a new one after making that change. The existing console windows will still be using the old PATH.

Ok it was my mistake, I made a spelling mistake in the path name and only realised it while I was writing it out.

Thanks for all your help guys.
