.AIR files

03/14/2014 2802 views

Today is the first time I've seen one of these .air files.  Is there an Adobe wizard which is used to package / modify these?

Is it frowned upon by performing a capture and creating a .MSI?

Is there a command line option to silently install the .AIR file?

  • Thanks for the links RS. VBScab... Do you recommend capturing the .AIR file installation?
  • Ok... There is a .MSI inside the extracted .AIR file. I'll use that! :)

 YOu can install alone or with Adobe AIR installer.

If this is in an enterprise environment, you'll want to get rid of Air: letting vendors loose on your workstations is *never* a good idea, especially one with Adobe's record. Does anyone else remember the Acrobat Pro 8 permissions screw-up? Jeez...
