Flexcover is a code coverage tool for Flex, AIR and AS3. It incorporates a modified version of the AS3 compiler which inserts extra function calls in the code within the SWF or SWC output file. At runtime, these function calls send information on the application’s code coverage to a separate tool; The modified compiler also emits a separate “coverage metadata” file that describes all the possible packages, classes, functions, code blocks and lines in the code, as well as the names of the associated source code files.
Flexcover now computes both line coverage and branch coverage. In branch coverage conditional code paths rather than lines are counted. Many developers feel that branch coverage is a much more accurate measure of coverage, and it is able to detect coverage issues that occur within a single line of code such as compound conditionals with and &&, or conditional expressions using the ?: operator.

Surprised today to know that AIR can’t launch external applications.
What can be the reason for this? When other applications like Zinc are able to do in different platforms.

Let you know in future if there is any workaround for this.
