I am developing an application to be distributed within my workplace. The target systems have AIR installed, but do not have administrative privileges. Reading the AIR admin guide it appears that an administrator can allow the installation of applications with specific certificates. Before I go back to our adminirators I would like to better understand what the administrator would have to do to allow a specific certificate.
I am hoping that it is as simple as our administrator checking a box trusted certificates and then adding the name of my self-signed certificate.
Any help would be appreciated
From my understanding, the problem with administrative permissions isn't the certificate, but instead write access to the required OS directories. This capability has been a frequent request (make sure to vote!) and one we hope to address in a future release.
If you have enterprise deployment tools available, this might end up being an effective workaround.
Thanks for the reply Chris,
Sadly the workaround wont do the job. The administrators are a bit inflexable, if they approved it they would charge a few thousand dollars to implement an enterprise software dist.
I understand that AIR can be blocked due to OS directories or registry access. In this case it is the latter, I thought that a certificate could allow registry access.
Thanks again for the help!
