    Air Auto Update Error -- Flash Builder Burrito.

    jeffcg2 Level 1

       

       

      This is my first attempt at this, so I may be missing something simple.

       

      I'm not having any luck getting an Air app to automatically update.

       

      If I manually go to  http://localhost/air1/air1.air and redownload the file I will get a popup that asks if I want to update the app, but when I say ok I get this error.

      "There was an error checking for updates. Error# 16816"

       

      I haven't found a reason yet,

       

      Any ideas?
