I've reinstalled serveral times tried it with AIR sdk 4.0, 3.9, 3,7,3,4. restarted... yada yada yada. I can't think of what else its trying to copy. it seems to accept the digital signature. is this a read only issue?
I can make all of the other types- 'signed AIR package', signed native installer, intermediate AIRI package that must be signed later.
Does anyon know a work around to take the files from my release temp folder and create an app with captive runtime?
Thanks for any thoughts you might have.
Solved thanks to myself. export to a different drive. in my case- Desktop.
turns out i can't copy to the terrablock volume i'm working off of. I figured this out after trying to do this solely in Flash Pro. I received a crazy error message. I googled that and i found a post that i commented on a 6 months ago. To see me talking to my future self look here - http://forums.adobe.com/message/5475543
hope this helps someone.
