How to install AIR SDK 3.1 ( with 3.4 installed )

Oct 22, 2012 6:12 PM

I am trying to install a previous version of the SDK    3.1

I am doing this to accommodate BlackBerry BB10.


Using the Manage SDK utility in Flash CS6, I currently have installed 3.2 and 3.4.

When I try to install 3.1 I first get the error that the version of the sdk I am trying to install is not valid.

Ok, I got around this by placing an  airsdk.xml  file in the SDK directory. Because the Archived 3.1 SDK from Adobe did not have one..  but 3.2 and 3.4 do.


Ok, not I get the error  that Only SDK higher than version 3.4.2540 may be added.


So what..  now I cannot add earlier versions?



Please..  how do I add AIR SDK   3.1 as option for usage in Flash Pro CS6  ?

    Were you ever able to figure this out? I've spent a bunch of time trying the same thing...

    I still can't get Air 3.1 to work in Flash CS6...


    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the reply.. Glad to hear that you got it...


    I've followed your advise and gave it a try... But I'm still stumped...


    Would you be able to share the descriptor code you used or point me in the right direction as to where I can find it?


    I moved the the "default |blackberry-sdk-descriptor.xml" into the Common/Players folder but flash gave me the error:


    "Line 1: A ‹players› element was expected



    Also, disabling the AIR 3.4 makes total sense but how?


    Hopefully you have a moment to help out.. it would be huge.


    Shocked that more people are not also experiencing the same problems here with Blackberry SDK and Flash CS6.


    Thanks for your help.

    I am about to do this as well.  Just curious Jason - did you try DachFlach's instructions and did it work for you?
