What are the restrictions about installing the AIR runtime on
the Mac and PC? I am pretty sure the runtime installs the same way
as a regular program does. Do users wanting to install AIR
applications, not the runtime, have to have administrative rights
to do so?
On Windows, users must have administrative rights to install
both AIR and AIR-based applications.
On Mac OS, administrative access is required to install AIR.
It may or may not be required for AIR-based applications, depending
on how your machine is configured and whether or not an AIR update
is also required to install the application.
