I too am experiencing this. An associate cannot install the .air file on OS 10.4.11. It just appears to be an uknown text doc and opens by default with wave editor.
I'd love to slap him and say update the OS, but it's not that old, and some work environments just can't update.
@rodneykc: Does the installer exit, or simply not display any UI? Are there any messages in the system console?
@cayennecode: If your .air files aren't being opened by AIR then it's likely that either (a) you don't have .air installed or (b) there's a conflict with another application registering for .air. On Mac OS, you can instead launch the Adobe AIR Application Installer (in /Applications/Utilities) and then select the .air file from the file chooser that it will open.
Thanks Oliver, I'll try having him do that. After the first problem, I directed him to download the AIR installer at http://get.adobe.com/air/, and he continued to say he was unable to double-click the .air app to install.
I was under the impression that .air application installers have the Air runtime bundled into them, so initial air users aren't downloading/installing multiple things.
Sorry for replying so late on this, I actually gave up on developing on my laptop and switched everything over to my desktop.
To answer your question though, double clicking the installer does nothing, no UI, no messages, nothing.

There is more if you still would like to give this a shot.
I appreciate your help.
