I recently attempted to install an AIR application, but got the error message "This application requires an update to Adobe AIR but download of that update has failed". I tried numerous times, but always the same error.
I'm now trying to reinstall AIR, but whenever I try to run the installer (from the desktop, My Documents or wherever) I get the error "Windows cannot find 'C:\Users\(my Windows username)\Appdata\Local\Temp\AIR(4 random characters).tmp\Adobe AIR Installer.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again". I've checked that file location and the folder exists (presumably extracted by the installer), but no "Adobe AIR Installer.exe" - just "setup.msi", "setup.swf" and a folder called "Adobe AIR". No matter where I run the installer from or with what permissions, it still throws the same error. I am using Windows 7.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Probably the application you are trying to install has an obsolete namespace like 2.0beta/2.0beta2 or it has a higher namespace(not public yet).
Could you just follow these steps:
1) Copy the AIR file you are trying to download locally somewhere
2) Change its extension from .air to .zip
3) Extract it.
4) Open the file META-INF\AIR\application.xml
5) There would be a line of the sort:
Could you just copy this line of your application.xml here?
Also, which is the AIR version you are trying to download? Did you try downloading the latest AIR 2 available at:
The line says:
