You can run the application with ADL.
There is no other version of AIR 1.1. The error dialog is turned off for installed applications on the assumption that you wouldn't want your end users to see these error messages. Why do you want them to appear?
I have a team of users who are testing an AIR application. They all have their own desktops so I had them install the Adobe AIR 1.1 runtime. Then I gave them the AIR application compiled into a .air file to install.
Now when they are testing I need them to report to me any errors or problems they find but errors are sliently occuring without them knowing about them. How can I catch these errors?
Is there a way to have an application wide try / catch block?
You cannot catch these errors. However, you can use the following unsupported method with AIR 1.1 to enable debug mode for the installed applications.
Please note that we don't promise this will work in any future release, and it won't work if either the DRM or ELS APIs are used by your application. Also, it has a negative impact on performance.
To enable debug mode for installed applications: First find the installed location of the application. Then, find the "application.xml" file inside that directory. Create an empty file called "debug" next to application.xml. The next time the application is started, it will launch in debug mode, as if run from adl.
