check if any files that need to load (xml etc) are, in fact loading. you can use alcon and its trace() function to debug your app.
KGLAD, I appreciate your time and suggestions.
I am sorry but I think I was not able to make my problem clear to you or may be didn't get you quite well.
I have an application which runs fine when I build and run it in the IDE. There is no error or warning at all.
I can export this application to application.air without any error or warning.
The main problem is - after I install the exported application.air app, nothing shows up. If I check in the task manager, the app seems running as a process.
I can see all the required files loaded in the application.air package when I open it as a zip folder.
Please tell me what things should I try to trace and when and where? Also share me some ideas on how to fix it.
For your info:
This app is AIR 1.0 app compiled with flex sdk 3.0 in Flex builder 3
The problem remains same if I use flash builder 4 or do the command line compilation with adl and adt.
I am using windows vista OS [Business Version].
I figured out - this issue was because of incompatible tags among the AIR framework Versions.
For some reason, even if you use the compatible version of the compiler and compile and run it inside the IDE, the exported Installation file won't work as expected. The application installs but then no GUI onscreen!!
So if you run into such problem, just have a look on the tags.
No, the descriptor tag and the compiler I choose were good.
The tags that we use for layouts has had problems. Tags like the panel, canvas etc. I don't remember well but one of such tags was having issues and I got rid of it by using something else.
Let me know with the code excerpts if you still have issues like that!
I am having the same problem. Can you give more specifics on your solution?
The project runs fine in my Flash IDE. But when launched with its AIR installer, i see the process runing in System Manager, but not able to see GUI.
I eventually found that I had not included a swf in my air package that was required at runtime. In this case, it was a swf that contained string resources.
