    AIR Application Installation Fails on Vista, but works on XP

    BridalLive
      I've developed an application that's installed on 4 PCs in our retail store. 3 are windows XP and 1 is Vista. When the application starts, I check if an update is needed. If so, we download the new AIR file and run the updater via Updater.update(). I've successfully installed >10 new versions of the application this way and it's been working great. Until now. The Vista machine decides that it doesn't want to update. All of the other machines (XP) worked fine. My application has been updated for AIR 1.1 (-app.xml namespace update) and all of the XP machines had 1.1 prior to the install. The Vista machine didn't and I went out and updated to 1.1 to see if that would fix the problem. It didn't. I've captured the installation log (below) and wanted to see if anyone has seen this before. Thanks for your assistance. I'd like to be able to pinpoint the exact problem, because I plan to sell this application and would like to gain more experience with troubleshooting the installs/updates.

      Thanks again.
