It seems that Adobe AIR use Internet Explorer settings to connect to the Internet on Windows...
I'm developping an app with AIR. When the app is launched, it downloads an XML file to check if the app is up to date.
When IE is in offline-mode, the XML file is not downloaded (or the previous version of the XML file is displayed) (i'm using an URLLoader).
When I turn IE in online-mode, the XML file is now displayed correctly.
This is very annoying, because I have some users who doesn't have IE on their Windows XP (or a misconfigured IE) and they cannot lauch the app...
Anyone have a solution?
It has always puzzled me that AIR is supposed to use Webkit, but on Windows if you want to clear AIR's browser cache, you have to clear Internet Explorer's caché. Why is that?
The Flash Player settings also bleed into AIR. On Windows, the Hardware Acceleration setting on the Flash Player Plugin affects AIR desktop apps
Our desktop game suffers from this, and we have to send our users through process of manually changing their Flash Player settings in IE to make our game work properly. Ugh.
