Flash CS5 is not working

That's one of those blog post which I'm using as documentation. When I find a bug and I fix it I feel that I have to write the whole process somewhere, because if I meet the same problem in the future I'll really want to save some time. Today I open my Flash CS5 and apparently I can't paint on the stage.

I can't see anything on the sage. No matter what I put there. It's just empty. Then started digging and found out that everything works fine when I create an AS2 document. Once I switch to AS3 everything gets bad. The problem was that there was wrong Flex SDK URL in Edit -> Preferences -> ActionScript -> ActionScript 3.0 Advenced Settings -> Flex SDK Path. I simply browse the correct folder and everything starts working again.
