          Hi,

           

          Currently 2.6.0.19120 is the latest public release version, so it is the expected result that there is no runtime update available.

           

          Thanks,

          Jian

            Thanks Jian.

            The reason I posted this logfile is because whenever I attempt to run the

            installer that came with my Motorola Cable Modem on my Windows XP box, a dialog

            box tells me that it is "Initializing the Installation", but then the installer

            never runs.  Initially, it gave me an error message about installing Adobe AIR,

            so I manually installed Adobe AIR.  Now, it just silently fails, and so I was

            hoping that something in the AIR logfile would identify the cause of the silent

            failure.

             

            Can you help me troubleshoot this?  What else can I do to identify why the

            installer is silently failing?

            Thanks,

            Cindy

              Could you try the following commands in command line and paste the outputs and AIR install log here again?

              1. <AIR Runtime Installer> -info

              2. <AIR Runtime Installer> -uninstall

              3. <AIR Runtime Installer> -silent

                Thanks for your help.  I ran the steps you suggested, but still could not get

                the installer that uses AIR to run (it failed silently).  Could this be related

                to the fact that I'm trying to install this on a work laptop? (I don't have

                administrator privileges on the machine, or it may be locked down in some other

                way.)

                 

                Below is the log of what I tried:

                C:\Downloads>AdobeAIRInstaller.exe -info

                 

                C:\Downloads>This is an installer for Adobe AIR 2.6.0.19120

                Adobe AIR 2.6.0.19120 is installed.

                Scheduled install type: patchSame

                 

                Note: this never returned to the command prompt, so I killed it with Ctrl+C

                 

                C:\Downloads>AdobeAIRInstaller.exe -uninstall

                 

                C:\Downloads>Uninstalling Adobe AIR(all versions)

                AdobeAIRInstaller.exe -uninstalldone

                 

                Note: this never returned to the command prompt, so I killed it with Ctrl+C

                 

                C:\Downloads>AdobeAIRInstaller.exe -silent

                 

                C:\Downloads>Adobe AIR is currently not installed

                Installing version 2.6.0.19120

                done

                 

                Note: this never returned to the command prompt, so I killed it with Ctrl+C

                  It should be the root cause. Can you get the administrator privilege on that machine and try again?
