Problem running app on Kindle fire

Nov 26, 2012 4:57 AM

If I compile my app built with Starling using AIR 3.5.0.760 for Android with Embedded runtime selected, and then install the .apk onto a Kindle fire HD via adb, when I run the app I get a popup message stating:

"This app requires a newer version of Adobe AIR"

If I cancel this warning the app fails to run, but if I click ok I get taken through to an adobe AIR page on the amazon store, but trying to download AIR from here also gives an error.

Can anyone suggest what I'm doing wrong and how to correct it?

thanks,
Alex

    Although it will increase your apps file size (I'm not sure anyone cares at these broadband speeds) you can embed the AIR runtime into your app that is known to be stable with it. During export simply select to embed the captive runtime. No more AIR messages should occur and you know your app will run stable on that build.

    Ah, it's called "captive runtime".

     

    Do you have any other tablets you're testing on?

     

    Also why are you using the beta version? x.x.x.600 is the stable release. Any reason you need the beta?

    This may be a byproduct of either being beta or the version not matching up (although I don't believe this should never happen on captive, unless Android will use a newer runtime if included).

     

    You can always get the latest stable build here:

    version 3.5.0.600

    Glad that fixed it. If you're all set please mark the thread as complete so we can filter unanswered questions.

     

    Good luck!
