I've detailed the entire ordeal here at stackoverflow http://stackoverflow.com/questions/31765612/update-flash-builder-mobile-app-to-use-64-bit- with-air-sdk-18-0
I am having a terrible time updating my Flex Project to use 64bit and iOS 8. I have to update because when I use Adobe Air SDK 14 I get the following error while uploading my release version via the Application Loader.
I've followed all of the instructions listed in the following, but nothing works:
When I change the line in my air descriptor mxl file to:
I get the following error:
I've downloaded the Air SDK from this page: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/air/air-sdk-download.html
I tried using both the main link and the Flex specific SDK only link.
Then I installed the Air SDK in /Applications/Adobe Flash Builder 4.7/eclipse/plugins/com.adobe.flash.compiler_22.214.171.1249722
Also, I used the Apache Flex SDK installer to get the latest flex SDK to be used with Air SDK 18.
It seems to have installed fine
As you can see I've tried multiple versions. I also select the air version in my Flex Project compiler path.
I even tried overlaying the SDK in the Flash Builder SDKs folder.
Still, I always get the error when I try to set my app descriptor XML line to 18.0
I can set it to 16.0 and the application will build.
But then when I build, my app has a ton of UI problems. Spinners go crazy and tab bars, buttons, and layout all have problems. My app goes from looking like this:
Why does the UI get so messed up? Is it because AIR is not referenced properly?
I have no idea what to do... I am urgently trying to release my app, but I am stuck on this. Please help. Thanks for reading.
I'm not sure if this is resolved for you.
If not :-
Well, not quite sure about 64bit stuff here. But the UI changes that you are facing is due to latest changes that are incorporated in flex sdk to pick up native skins for android\ios.
If you want to retain old look and feel, you need to add following to your compiler
