Sothink decompiled SWF to Flex: how to build in Adobe Flash Premium Builder?

I have a similar issue: inherited SWF without source from previous contractor who lost on recompete. Company purchased Sothink and decompiled SWF to both FLA and Flex. I created a new Flex project in Flash Builder Premium, but can't get this to compile. Decompiled FLA is also not useful. Lots of AS3 files. What is the secret sauce to recovering SWF in a usable format in Flash Premium Builder? I tried compiling directly in Flex but no joy. Can someone provide a step-by-step for using Premium Builder and/or Flex from DOS with decompiled Sothink source files? Many thanks.

Thank you for your response. I put work into it and am making some progress in Flash Builder, however, cannot get rid of this Flex error:

Could not resolve <mx:LocationView> to a component implementation

This looks like it's in relation to a Google map.

I've googled the error but have not been able to resolve. This is an old project that was done in CS4 for Flash 9 player and uses mlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml"

I changed to the 3.6A compiler which got rid of the other errors except for this one. Any ideas what else I can look for?

I have not worked with any of this since about 2005 and then it was minimal.  I took over a project and needed to make a small change that required doing the similar process.  I am not an expert in action script or the scripting that goes with flash.

It does seem like that control is not flash/flex and is probably referenced in one of the supporting files.  Can you search for the term LocationView in the other supporting files and see if that points you in the direction?  Perhaps it is pointing to a file on another website?
