I'm on Windows 7 64bit, using FlashDevelop as my NME IDE.
I successfully installed NME using the standalone Windows installer and can publish to flash and html5 targets OK.
Using the Actuate example I tried publishing to Windows cpp target. The build process completes but I get an application window that's the smallest possible size (e.g. it contains no content, just has the 'minimize', 'maximize' and 'close' buttons on it) and there's no content visible at all.
