Browser compatibility for Adobe AIR (browser-based version)

Hi there,

 

I'm using RoboHelp 10 to create the browser-based version of Adobe AIR. My understanding is that this version of AIR uses Flash for some of the navigation, such as the table of contents.

 

Can anyone else share their findings on which browsers and Flash plug-ins will reliably display the browser-based version of AIR? I've found that it displays fine on IE 8, but not IE 9, and not Google Chrome (version 23).

 

Any advice would be appreciated.

 

Robert

    Psst – wrong place to ask – try searching the AIRHelp thread.

    To the best of my knowledge you should always use the latest version of Flash Player with any browser.

     

    If in doubt, there is an Flash Player uninstaller on Adobe's site. Run that, then point the browser to anything with Flash content and the latest version will be installed.

    You run into the Chrome security fix that they added a few releases ago to stop you from viewing local (either on your c: drive or on a LAN server drive) HTML content. There’s 3 ways to get around this – 1. FTP the files up onto a web server; 2. Enable local files access in the Chrome shortcut; 3. Set up a fake web server – see Peter’s site for “chrome” snippets describing 2 & 3.
