I built a straight forward info kiosk using Flash AS3 and used AIR to distribute it.
The main items of the file:
Straight ahead navigation with buttons that jump to frame markers.
It has a 3 minute timer which returns it to the start page if it is not touched within that time limit.
It has several screens that display web pages in a component web browser window.
The problems I have hit: I have had the kiosk react as if the timer were set to 5 seconds and return to the home page too quickly. I have had buttons not work while others were working.
But a restart of the AIR app corrects these issues and it works fine. It worked fine in my office however I did not test it in auto mode over several days of turning on and off and running all day.
The system it is on is Windows 7. The system auto starts each morning, launches the app, then shuts down at days end.
Could there be an issue with the app being up for 8 hours a day? Does it need to refresh itself?
Any input is appreciated.
Hi, sorry you're having to deal with this. What version of AIR is being used for your application? If it's not AIR 3.3, could you give this version a try (or AIR 3.4 on our labs.adobe.com site)? There shouldn't be a problem with the app running for multiple days at a time unless we're dealing with some sort of leak.
It is AIR 3.2. If I download 3.3 will Flash Pro recognize that and update to 3.3 or do I need to do something in Flash to utilize the upgrade when publishing as AIR?
When you say "some sort of leak"? What would a leak be? I am not familiar with the term or what it implies?
Thank you for the quick response. I will reply with the result in the next few days. I will have to load it up and let it run to see what happens.
same problem here... we have a simple kiosk app, with one FLVPlayback instance... there is a listener for keyboard... if someone press any key, video is seeked and played..
it is working perfectly for some time and then it just stops working without any reason... there cant be any memory leak (if it is not in FLVPlayback)
