The command line parameters to the application installer are not documented, nor are they a public API. What are you trying to accomplish?
I'm working on a proof of concept installer for a future project.
We can't use the “Seamless Install” because this approach requires an online installation (some project restrictions). But, when you are installing an AIR application from the desktop, the AIR runtime must already be installed on the computer, that makes this approach not ideal either.
So we are creating a wrapper installer that deals with the AIR runtime validation, installs it when necessary and then installs the AIR application.
Could you provide some tips on how to install/remove air packages using the Adobe AIR Application Installer from cmd-line?
First you should apply for a license to redistribute AIR at http://www.adobe.com/products/air/runtime_distribution1.html . Without this, what you're proposing to do is not in compliance with your current license.
Once you're granted a redistribution license you'll receive documentation on how to create the kind of installer you're looking for. Please read it carefully; the approach you're taking is not quite how it works in practice.
As i said before... It is just a proof of concept. We already have talked to Adobe and we'll apply for a license depending on the POC results.
Maybe you could point the best approach for install AIR packages.
Unfortunately, I cannot do that. Since the license is free and the turnaround is fast, I recommend you just apply, even if only for a POC.
I've applied for an AIR distribution license but I still have some doubts.
My application is based in one .air component and another one service created using C++. So, in order to install my application, I need to install both applications. I've used the bundled installation mentioned in the distribution docs, but it is not the best solution for my problem. I would like to have just one entry point in the “Add/Remove Programs” applet.
Is there another way to deliver the .air application (e.g. not using the Adobe AIR Application Installer)?
For example, is it possible get all files needed to create my .air file and install them without creating the .air file properly? I mean, is there any license or technical restrictions that invalidate this approach?
The only approach supported and licensed via the redistribution terms is using the installer provided with the redistribution materials. (Note that that program is *not* the "Adobe AIR Application Installer".)
What you're attempting to do goes beyond what our current terms support. There's an email address on the redistribution page you can use to open a discussion about alternate terms.
