    Can AIR applications be ran as a service?

      I'm guessing the answer is no since each application needs a window. But just to make sure.

      Can an AIR application run as a service? (i.e. NT service for windows, daemon on linux/mac started on /etc/init.d/rcx.d)

      Is that possible? Or does AIR application require a graphics console to display to (runlevel 5 and logged in)?

          An AIR window does not have to be visible. But an AIR window that is not
          visible is really hard to close.

            Er, yea true. But will it start up without a console?
