Is that folder empty at the time you create installer? Not sure, but I think air always removes any empty directories even if you explicitly specify them in adt -package
No, the folder is not empty. I have a couple of XML files in there with applicaiton preferences specified. I did it this way so the user can change some things. When the application is launched, the preferences file is loaded.
Unfortunately, I am not able to reproduce the prodblem. To reproduce I added a folder called testFiles in the AIR Settings Window(In Included Files Section) shown below. And I got the same in Program Files when i installed the app.
Am i doing anything different than you? BTW I am testing on Windows for now.
Maybe it's a Mac vs. Windows thing. When I install it on a Mac, there is no additional files/folders in the install directory. I even looked in the Users/Library/Application Support folder.....nothing there either.
Hmmm....well, i'll just search around some more to see if I can find a solution. Thanks for your help!
