Although Adobe advertises the system requirements for AIR 31.0.0.96 as "Mac OS X v10.10 or later," the installer allows installation on a system running OS X 10.7.5.

The version downloaded from this website never goes beyond "installing" Downloaded it twice and tried 2 different Macs. Success with a download from Adobe directly. The software itself, does what it needs to.

Version: 19.0.0.190
v19.0.0.190 patches 23 (twenty-three) security holes, all due to its incorporation of Adobe Flash. The fact that Adobe pushed this update outside of their usual 'Second-Tuesday-of-the-Month' schedule indicates that there is imminent exploitation of these security holes. Therefore: UPDATE IMMEDIATELY! - - Or simply dump both AIR and Flash.

Version: 18.0.0.180
As of Tuesday, 2015-08-11, Adobe AIR is now up to version 18.0.0.199. The update includes 35 security patches. Adobe considers this update to be 'Critical'.

Whenever Adobe Flash is updated, keep an eye out for an AIR update as well, because Flash is incorporated into AIR. Adobe does a lousy job informing people about AIR updates, not even bothering to post on the AIR download page what is the latest version. You literally have to download the most current version and check out the Installer to learn what version you're installing. That's both lazy and stupid of Adobe. :-P

Version: 14.0.0.178
Adobe AIR 14.0.0.178 was actually released on August 12, 2014 alongside Flash 14.0.0.176. It was updated specifically because AIR incorporates Flash. The Flash update included CRITICAL security patches. From Adobe's Security Bulletin: http://helpx.adobe.com/security/products/flash-player/apsb14-18.html "These updates resolve memory leakage vulnerabilities that could be used to bypass memory address randomization (CVE-2014-0540, CVE-2014-0542, CVE-2014-0543, CVE-2014-0544, CVE-2014-0545). "These updates resolve a security bypass vulnerability (CVE-2014-0541). "These updates resolve a use-after-free vulnerability that could lead to code execution (CVE-2014-0538)."

Blargh. I know this is not a *big* deal, but it frustrates me that the attention to detail and problematic culture of Adobe are evident from even this changelog item above: "On OS X, some fonts do not rending properly when viewing Flash content in the Google Chrome browser (3506958)" Having been part of Adobe beta cycles and testing for many years, I am just more and more frustrated with this company and it's directions. Even after offering many suggestions that would help tremendously, it seems that they are oblivious to outside influence and correctional suggestions.

I personally don't care about the concept as the apps I have seen written are below average in general. I could actually forgive this if there was a way to deploy to an enterprise. Once again Adobe has figured out how to make their bad installation ideas worse than before. Without a logical way to install this in mass, how does Adobe expect it to be supported in mass?

Why no simple way to find out which version of Adobe Air is installed? Something like a small app or a prefs pane which could also let you download and install the latest version? I did track down a small Air app which tells you which version you have installed, but surely this should be something that Adobe provide? http://knomedia.com/blog/2009/12/10/adobe-air-version-checker/

It is just unfair to kill the ratings of this product low because of squabbles about Adobe Politics, or temporary bugs ect.. This virtual machine is in many ways better than Java, wich started from a GREAT idea : one code -->all platform ...an utopia at the time !. This thing is as complex as an OS now, and has a crew of elite programmers at its core ( open source, called 'Tamarin' ), and it's FREE - as a great project like this should be - So please consider that before bitching

Adobe forces you to install as an admin user. There's no way to install as a normal user in case you want to limit the possible damage their buggy software can cause.

i’ve been reading many negative comments about Adobe AIR. this application is not totally useless. every once in a while, but not often, when i’m constipated, i download and install this app. then i uncompress the dmg and install it. after about five minutes of working with Adobe AIR, i am sitting on the toilet (cross-eyed and with a slight smile on my face) experiencing a mixture of relief and pain. then i come back to my computer and uninstall it. so there’s that.

Lousy app from a once-great company...Just got The Complete National Geographic as a gift but cannot run or install it as Mac PPC users are unable to upgrade to AIR 2.x (which is required) and are saddled with v1.5.2. How much effort would it honestly require to make it a Universal Binary?

So, PPC users (and developers trusting them) have been abandoned with a insecure 1.x version in hand? I couldn't believe my eyes so checked again, it says the security issue exist on all versions before this update. It is also treated very specially with Flash so, drive by download is possible too. I am really glad that MS Silverlight failed to take off. If it could, this was supposed to be its rival. If you haven't got something you can't give up written in Air, go to Utilities inside Applications and run Adobe Air uninstaller. At least that is what I did. I was so hopeful about this framework but they did everything to prove me wrong. Of course "web page/flash/html5 video" type applications aren't going anywhere, install latest Opera and install a Widget to see it in action. Opera shows Adobe how to do it, with 3% CPU usage and 10 MB of RAM and supports everything having a CPU.

This will NOT install on my Mac Book running Snow Leopard. It would not install running Leopard either. After hours of troubleshooting, searching, reading the Adobe support solution, (none of which work) I've come to the conclusion that it is a permissions problem that they have not bothered to code for. Their ''solution'' is to make sure admin privileges are set [which they are]. All I get is a dock icon and an app menu with no interface at all, and an endless spinning beach ball. Conclusion; when they decide to get around to writing a Macintosh version I'll take another look. This version is a total waste of time.

Does Air actually work on Apple computers? It probably does, but not for me: every time I try to install an Air application, I get an error box that says Air is not installed properly. So, I uninstall every element I can find, go to Adobe and run the new installer. No luck. I've tried every version, always with the same result. Anyone know how to fix it?

Sounds like to me Adobe Air emulates (on the desktop) the server-side environment to test web apps. PHP and some others scripts need to be on the server to function.

"So, it is a development system?" No, it is not. It is a runtime environment like one Java has, and needs to be installed in order to run applications developed for it. "There aren't enough development systems in the world?" Yes, you are right. There aren't enough development systems in the world. Period. "Why do I want to run on the Adobe servers?" Obviously you don't want, and you don't have to. Except for de download time of the installed package. "If I loose internet connection I'm down, instantaneously? Sounds like back to "Save Often or loose it all!" " In this case, you miss the point. It has nothing to do with continuos internet connection.

To the earlier reviewer who was wondering how this is different than Flex, AIR allows developers to write stand-alone applications using Flex, HTML, and/or Javascript. In other words, it allows us web developers to create stand-alone applications using the technologies we use every day. This is not like Google Gears or Firefox's offline data storage -- these are full blown applications that have much the same capabilities as a native application (with the huge advantage of being cross-platform). I've already used it to convert some of my Flex apps into standalone applications for use at trade-shows.

I don't understand what AIR is for, especially since Flex is out. You already have Flex, Flash, Widgets and Gadgets. They all can do similar things. And Flash content can be integrated into Widgets and Gadgets. And on top of that, now you have another app to download and install rather than just a widget or gadget, which is integrated into the operating system of either Windows or Mac OS. This seems like a complete waste of time or resources. Either that, or Adobe should be combining Flex with this? But it seems like they do pretty similar things already.

For those of you too busy to do more than make snide comments about a product you haven't bothered reading even the simplest introductory article on (many readily available from Adobe's wiki), I thought I'd take a few minutes out of my own busy schedule: 1) AIR (formerly "Apollo") is to the desktop what Flash Player is to the web browser. That is, you write content for AIR, compile it, and then people can download it and run it like a regular desktop application. And, yes, this means that you now have access to desktop-side faculties, such as the filesystem. 2) One chief difference between AIR and other dev tools is that you can use a mixture of HTML, XML, Javascript, Actionscript, Flex, etc. You're not limited to the script libraries that Adobe provides, either. Jack Slocum's Ext library, for example, is used to create a really nifty looking Task tracking app. 3) Adobe's purpose is to create an application development platform that allows the huge community of web developers use of their already-existing skills for desktop development. A secondary purpose, of course, is to allow web apps to be brought to the desktop for offline-enabled apps... apps that update when you're connected, but are still usable (in a limited sense, like composing email using Mail offline) when you're not. 4) The fact that Adobe has put more effort into bringing this technology out in a beta form shows more interest in creating a grassroots community. Branding can come later; the hardest part is getting developers interested in using the tools. 5) AIR is cross-platform. There is a runtime for Mac and for Windows, and I'm certain that if the Linux community gets pushing, there will be one for them as well. 6) Not only that, but Aptana has plug-ins that allow you to develop HTML/Javascript based AIR apps, for free, at the moment. Whether that will stay that way, I haven't heard, but you can at least give it a try.
