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
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.
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.
