    hi guys

      hi guys

      To start with, i think that i have been a little outdated because i just got to hear about actionscript 3.0 recently. i have been using 2.0 for some time and right now i'm ready to try out the new 3.0 and it possiblities. i just installed flash pro cs5 and i am just getting to know the flash authoring environment since i jumped from flash 8. i was having fun until i decided to take laws into my hands by creating a simple hello world application i saw in flash cs5 help that will run on AIR. i have followed the instructions on flash cs5 help on how to create it but i keeps asking for a signed certificate or something like that before it can run and i keep showing errors.  i do not have the slightest idea about how to fix this.

           please i know you guys have been there and without doubt gone through it. please help me out because i cant find a tutorials on how to create or get the certificate to run AIR application on my system

           please any suggestion will be highly appreciated. thanks to you all in advance.

          In CS5, go to the Adobe AIR x.x Settings dialog. Select the Signature tab. Look for the "Create" button next to the Certificate field. And click it.


          That will let you create and save a code signing certificate.

            thanks joe ... ward for your help but i have tried that, and when i try to double click on the file to run it, it show up errors about a failed update.

            thanks again for your time

              You need to use the same certificate each time or updates are blocked. This is a feature that prevents one AIR app from overwriting an unrelated AIR app.
