Help! ServiceCapture kills Flex Builder 2 Help!
The Help documents in Flex Builder 2 suddenly stopped working for me a few moments ago. Remembering that the Help panel uses the Internet Explorer control to display the HTML help pages, I thought I'd shut down ServiceCapture to see if it was the culprit and, lo and behold, the problems went away.
You see, by default, ServiceCapture modifies Internet Explorer's settings to use itself as a proxy so it can capture HTTP calls. If you want to be able to use Flex Builder 2's help and ServiceCapture together, you need to disable this feature. You can do so by unchecking the Modify IE settings on application start/stop option under the Proxy tab of Tools -> Settings.
