    Locking an AIR app to a specific runtime version

    cgmollo

      Hi,

       

      I realize there are some things an end-user can do to prevent automatic update of the AIR runtime, or at least the automatic update checking.

       

      What I'm wondering, however, is there a way for the developer of an AIR application to ensure that his/her application only ever runs in a specific version of AIR?

       

      In other words can I lock an AIR application to a specific version of AIR (e.g., AIR 1.5.3)?

       

      If the end-user updates AIR to a later version and then tries to run my application, I want the application to not run and provide the end-user an error message stating why the application can no longer be run. I am assuming here that multiple versions of AIR cannot be simultaneously installed on a computer.

       

      Thanks,

      Chris
