    Sorry an error has occured

    gitafanatic Level 1
      I just got the flash update and downloaded AIR, but on clicking on the .air installer package, get the message, "This application requires a version of Adobe AIR which is no longer supported. Please contact the application author for an updated version."
      And what is supposed to be done with the xml file? Does it need to be distributed along with the installer for the installer to work? That's a bit unusual.
      And is the installer self-sufficient, or does the client need to download air as well to make it work?
      Thanks - its all part of getting my head around things. Alan

          The most likely reason for this message is that you've attempted to install an application which is bound to the Beta 3 release but you have only the final 1.0 release of AIR installed. If this is an application you've authored, you should update it to target 1.0. That's typically as simple as updating the namespace in your application descriptor file, re-compiling, and re-publishing.

          By "the xml file", are you referring to the application descriptor? If so, it's stored in the .air file and does not need to be distributed separately.

          In order to install an .air file, the user must either (a) already have AIR installed or (b) you can have both AIR and the application installed at the same time via the "badge install" feature, which is covered in the documentation.
