there's no certficate, password, provisioning profile and no device attached.
Added a cert, password and provisioning profile. The application now crashes upon trying to publish the app, the application also never sees any connected devices regardless of plugging them in (iPhones). Also, the original issue still happens, it gives the same error.
If you deselected the connected device option, and try a publish, do you get an IPA file and no crash?
I can't click the connected device checkbox. Nothing still shows in the area below that (the list area) when I connect my phones or development tablets my team has, and when I try clicking on the checkbox initially to activate it, it still gives the "Unknown error; quitting application" error.
if flash doesn't detect a connected device in that box, do NOT check that 'connect' box.
either publish and install using itunes or fix your setup so you can detect connected devices.
if you connect an ios device, does your os see that device?
and do you have itunes installed? if so, what version?
I can't publish, flash crashes unfortunately, no error it just completely dies. I'd love to fix my setup but that's why I'm posting here for help, because there's apparently an issue to be rectified.
Yes my OS sees my iphones and tablets when connected just fine
I do have itunes and xcode installed which were required - itunes is 12.3, xcode is whatever the latest one was.
Thanks for helping out!
open flash pro and select an ios project.
click control>test movie>in air debug launcher (desktop).
if no, uninstall your itunes and install version 12.1.2 and restart your computer.
attach an ios device via usb and open flash pro for an ios project > click control > test movie > on device via usb > if your ios device is not listed, click refresh list. does your ios device appear?
The advice about iTunes is what usually works for Windows users. As you're on Mac, the iTunes 12.3.1 that is already installed should work fine.
When you said earlier that you could not click on that checkbox, but you also said when you click on it you don't see devices, I couldn't understand whether you were able to click the checkbox or not. If you can click on it at all, can you make sure that it's not selected? Then do a publish and see if you can get the IPA file. You can drag that IPA file onto your devices in the Devices window of Xcode, as a workaround until you can figure out how to get Flash to see devices.
Thanks for the help and responses guys.
KGlad - No issues doing the air for desktop tests, it runs fine. I didn't update itunes per Colin's mention below your reply.
Colin - When I click on that box it crashes, meaning I can click on it but obviously cannot initiate the regular behavior which is being able to select an iOS device. I don't know if when you open that diaglog box for publishing that your iOS device should automatically be there regardless if it's checked or not? That I do not know.
You're correct - when I said I click on it I still don't see devices - but like I said above when I click on it, the second I do, the application error dialog box as described above appears and I can do nothing else other than click "OK" and it immediately terminates the entire program.
I want it to be unchecked! Maybe quit Flash Pro and reopen. I would expect it to default to not being selected. If by any means you can get it to be unchecked, so that it's not looking for devices, see if you can then publish.
When I first open that dialog the checkbox is indeed unchecked if I leave it unchecked and go to publish it immediately crashes flash all together:

I really appreciate the help!
