Yes I have the same problem aswell..I have been trying for the last day to get Air working and it simply wont. Upon installing it will just hang.
I cannot install Adobe AIR on my Intel iMac (2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo) running Mac OS X 10.4.11.
The installer hangs on launch. Activity Monitor shows CPU usage at 100% - Adobe AIR Installer is not responsive. So I have to force quit from Activity Monitor.
Yep, I've got the same problem. Trying to install an app (such as the BBC iPlayer) just shows the progress indicator for ever and doesn't work. Using the installer from Adobe's web site, I am told to contact my administrator. I am my administrator. I even tried running it using 'sudo' from terminal and I was told that this was not an administrator's account!
I just sum up, having exactly the same problem. (same machine, same os, same error).
No clues yet ?
Adobe, no word ?
I thought that 1.5.1 was the fix/patch for this problem that is getting quite generalized it seems, but no way out yet.
I make my living as a developer. This week i've rented another machine meanwhile, cause i can't stop 3 days .. !!
I managed to get it working by getting rid of all of the remnants of previous AIR installations. To do this I searched manually through the system and user libraries and deleted files that had been missed by the uninstaller. I can't remember exactly where they all were, but I do remember finding some files in a 'Macromedia' directory as well as under 'Adobe' directories under 'Application Support'.
I've found out 2 things:
o) Installing & Uninstalling using sudo/command-line does the job.
o) The following line from the Known Issues & Limitations section of the 'Release notes for Adobe AIR developers' (2/24/2009 http://www.adobe.com/support/documentation/en/air/1_5_1/releasenotes_developers.html#sdk) says :
"AIR application might not work correctly when the language is Español Latinoamérica
If the operating system's language setting is Español Latinoamérica (Latin American Spanish), AIR application might not work correctly. Please remove it from your language list and use Español (Spanish) instead."
That was exactly my case.
Sad that the release notes is only in english ...
great info sebastian
