How to Run Air on any PC from CHORME or IE Explorer

Aug 14, 2013 4:08 AM

I create a Mouse Detection Event on PC1. Detection works great. However, mouse detection does not work when I play the same file on PC2?

 

Summary:

All three mouseclick events are detected on PC1.

However... ONLY left mouseclick detected on PC2?

 

All configs are identical on both PCs:

     Air Installed Player 2.6

     Flash Player 11.8

     Published AIR html

     Same CHROME & IE Explorer Browsers both sys

     Same PC systems win 7, SVC 1 etc.

 

What is something missing to prevent the my second PC from detecting the mouse clicks...Any ideas?

 

 

Thanks,

    are you creating an air app that's installed on both computers or are you opening an html file (that embeds a swf) in web browsers?

    so that has nothing to do with adobe air.

     

    if an html is on a pc and you're using a browser from that same pc, you can have security sandbox issues on one pc and not on the other (depending on whether a pc has ok'd potential security issues):  http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/se ttings_manager04.html

     

    i don't know how that could affect what you're detecting, but it's not clear what you're doing either.

     

    anyway, upload your html and embedded swf to a server and test the uploaded files in your browsers.

    that link isn't relevant when viewing a swf in a browser that loads files from the internet.  it applies to locally loaded files only.

     

    does anyone else have a problem using your app?

    that might be browser dependent.  i see no problem in firefox.

    click (or double click) your .air file.  that should start the installation process for your air application.

     

    your .exe file is a projector file and is more limited than an air file.

    create a new directory.

     

    open flash 5.5, create a new air app and save as test1 in that new directory.  use your certificate/password and publish your air app using the default file names.

     

    take a screenshot of the files in that new directory and attach to this forum.

    exe files are not run on browsers.

     

    if you want to publish something to be opened in a browser, publish a swf and html (file>publish settings) and open the html in your browser.

    stop. 

     

    whenever you commit to discussing, for example, an air application, i answer you and you change the topic to a non-air application.

     

    whenever you commit to discussing, for example, a browser-based application, i answer you and you change the topic to an air application.

     

    you are either

     

    1.  creating a desktop application that will be installed by users (an air app) or

    2.  creating a web-based application that will be viewed by users in their web browser (standard html, swf app).

     

    or you could be creating both but you need to be clear about which you are discussing you need to maintain focus instead of repeatedly changing focus.

    I will be reporting the occurrence to the forum moderators.

    And why did you just report a completely unrelated post by Nancy O. in the Dreamweaver forum?
