I am considering using Air for a kiosk application. One potential issue I see is that when you update, my research shows that it requires someone to click an "Accept" button to perform the update. I was wondering is there any way around this? If there isn't then this would be a dealbreaker for using Air.
We would be able to log in remotely and run scripts, so not sure if something can be done this way to bypass the requirement for touching of the button. But it has to be done without the interaction of a person.
If anyone can point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated. I've done some searching but nothing's come up yet and maybe I'm just not finding the right thing.
Desktop applications can indeed simply skip the user-question. I've written an Update Helper, which is currently still in work but it provides the "force install" functionality which don't even let the user chose to restart the app or not. It's simply doing so

Thank you so much Marvin! I will try to give it a spin this week and let you know if it does the trick! Much appreciated!
