I've been working through the example on an updater based on the Adobe AIR documentation. http://help.adobe.com/en_US/AIR/1.5/devappshtml/WS5b3ccc516d4fbf351e63e3d118666ade46-7ff2. html The example i've been following is just before 1/2 way mark on the page and is called "Basic example: Using the ApplicationUpdaterUI version"
When I run my application I get no notification to update. Are there some sort of permissions I need to give to the application?
Have you updated the settings in the updateConfig.xml file (such as the url property)? And have you posted a new version of the AIR application (with a different version setting in the application descriptor file) on your web server?
Also, have you looked at this sample application: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/air/ajax/quickstart/update_framework.html
I ended up calling the checknow function before the code was initialized.
