I'm looking into the possibility of porting my regular web
application to an AIR application to make use of some of AIR's
offline capabilities. I see in the forums that admin rights are
needed to install the AIR runtime - this is a bit of a showstopper
for me. Can someone please let me know:
1. Is this still the case with AIR 1.5?
2. If I were to package AIR myself and deliver it to my
customer in a CD, would I be able to customize the runtime and get
around this issue of the user needed admin rights to install the
The issue isn't with AIR, but with the rights of the
currently logged in user. If that user doesn't have permission to
install applications, then they can't install
any applications, including Adobe AIR applications. So, no
matter how you approach it, if the user has to install anything but
doesn't have the rights, it's just not going to happen.
Well I am using an administrator account and I can neither
update Air either automatically or via downloadable install file
nor can I uninstall Air. I have tried the Windows Installer cleanup
util but that did nothing to fix the problem.
