I'm developing a project that targets Flash Player 9. Is there any way in an FB4.7 pure Actionscript project to target the Player version, not the AIR SDK version? If not, what is the AIR version that targets Flash Player 9? I know that I can set the Player version in the compiler settings but the earliest AIR version I have installed is 3.6 which asks for at minimum Player version 10.1.
As an alternative, I'm considering using a Flash Pro format FB4.7 project and wondered if there is any drawback to using the Flash Pro compiler? I'm assuming that a Flash Player 9 targetted project would use the newer compiler.
Edit: It appears that even the Flash Pro project in FB4.7 points to the AIR sdk. So which AIR sdk supports Player 9?
Ultimately you need to install the proper Flex SDK and or AIR SDK that has the minimum player version you are trying to target. Although it appears that getting ahold of previous versions and getting their minimum player version is not trivial.
Here is a link that I found that may help:
On the other hand according to statistics:
(Adobe's link doesn't seem to give version statistics anymore)
http://www.adobe.com/products/player_census/flashplayer/version_penetration.html redirects to http://www.adobe.com/products/flashruntimes/statistics.html and I wasn't able to find any information on that site. You could Google around for other sites but http://www.statowl.com/flash.php seems pretty accurate.
An incredibly small amount of people even have Flash Player 9 anymore so is there a reason you don't want to upgrade to requiring Flash Player 10.1?
