Restarting an Adobe AIR Application is not working during Silent installation.
If I install testapp.air(which has following code) on a machine that already has Adobe AIR installed on it and I click on
the 'Restart' button in the testapp it works fine. (The app is closed and restarted and the window reopens)
public function reStart():void
var app:WindowedApplication =
var mgr:ProductManager =
mgr.launch("-launch " +
app.nativeApplication.applicationID + " " +
Now, we have a need to bundle Adobe AIR with our app and install Adobe AIR in 'silent' mode. I followed the directions in the Adobe
AIR bundling agreement and used the following command to install it:
testappInstaller.exe -silent -eulaAccepted -location "C:/Program Files/" -desktopShortcut testapp.air
If I do this, when I click on the 'Restart' button it does NOT restart the application. The issue seems to be related to installing
Adobe AIR in silent mode.
I would greatly appreciate any assistance Adobe is able to provide for this issue.
