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 ?
I managed, with some fighting, to get an AIR 3.1 SDK installed.
I added a descriptor in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Flash CS6\Common\Configuration\Players folder.
I am not sure if it was needed but I temporarily disable the 3.4 version and added the 3.1 in the Manage SDK utility.
I added 3.4 back afterwards.
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.
Hi Jason.. try the following.. but be warned. I made this up as i went along, so no promises.
I am not even entirely sure this did the trick.
That said, I have suffered no ill effect from this.
Duplicate an existing AIR xml file from that directory ( example: AdobeAIR2_5.xml ).
Name it AdobeAIR3_1.xml
Change the first lines to:
<player id="AdobeAIR3_1" version="14" asversion="3" minasversion="3">
<publishobject2 id="Air_Desktop_iOS" version="3.1" intversion="3.1"></publishobject2>
Then try to add 3.1 via the Manage SDK Utility.
If you cannot, remove the 3.4 folder ( rename it ).
Then restart Flash, run the utility again and it should not have 3.4 anymore.. scared yet?
Then try to add 3.1 again.
If it works.. then I am surprised two times now!
Then add 3.4 again.
I repeat - this was a hack I was desperate to try and might have gotten lucky.
There Hopefully, will be someone, one day, who will give both of us more sound advice.
I can however, now create workable BB10 and PlayBook apps from my SDK 3.1 in Flash.
I wonder if you and I are in a limited group because we happened to Not have installed 3.1 when it came out.
Leaped from 2.5 to 3.2 maybe.
