Re: adobe air doesn't install on new mac version

I tried this link

https://get.adobe.com/air/otherversions/

 

That allowed me to download and install it but then gets this error

“Adobe AIR.framework” is damaged and can’t be opened.

Re: adobe air doesn't install on new mac version

We just tested it again using Firefox, Chrome, and safari. This still isn't fixed.

I am having this same problem, with the error about a damaged framework. I tried the hack to switch "allow apps from anywhere" back on, but this did not help Adobe Air work at all. Hoping for another solution?

Re: I am having this same problem, with the error about a dam...

found the solution, here is the email from support at:  Adobe.Support@harman.com

The plan going forwards should be to use the “captive runtime” approach where there is no longer a dependency on this shared runtime, but instead the applications are bundled up together with the runtime. There are some instructions for this at the below link… the disadvantage here is that the applications will need to be re-packaged/re-distributed, but over the long term it would be a better approach.

https://help.adobe.com/en_US/air/build/WSfffb011ac560372f709e16db131e43659b9-8000.html

 

Hope that helps..

 

thanks

So the solution is that we have to recompile, repackage, and redistribute all Air apps? And bundle all of them with the runtime? Seriously??

I can tell you that the process is not easy... BUT it is possible.

I recommend hiring someone on Freelancer.com that can help with getting the certificates and compile a pkg / dmg using your AIR to a native captive runtime. I did it... got more gray hair from it but hopefully I can give you enough info here that will put you on the right track. So here it is:

 

first compile your AIR app, I am using a nodejs script:

 

#!/usr/local/bin/node
var util = require('util');
var exec = util.promisify(require('child_process').exec);
var servers = [
    'rm -r -f ./YourAppName.app',
    'rm -r -f /Users/YourUser/Library/Application\ Support/YourAppName*',
    'rm -r -f /Users/YourUser/Library/Caches/YourAppName*',
    'rm -r -f /Users/YourUser/Library/Cookies/YourAppName.',
    '/usr/bin/java -jar ../../FlexAir28/lib/mxmlc.jar  +flexlib=../../FlexAir28/frameworks/ +configname=air -swf-version=37 ./YourAppName.mxml -output ./bin/YourAppName.swf',
    '/usr/bin/java -jar ../../FlexAir28/lib/adt.jar -package -tsa http://sha256timestamp.ws.symantec.com/sha256/timestamp -keystore ../../AIR_2021.p12 -storetype pkcs12 -storepass clscls2 -target bundle ./YourAppName ./YourAppName.xml -C ./bin/ YourAppName.swf -C ./icons/ IconStudio16.png -C ./icons/ IconStudio32.png -C ./icons/ IconStudio48.png -C ./icons/ IconStudio128.png',
    'cp -r -f /Users/YourUser/Desktop/Mac/Solution/6.3/Build/Master/Code/desktop/StudioLoginAirOrigin.swf /Users/YourUser/Desktop/Mac/YourAppName/src/YourAppName.app/Contents/Resources/YourAppName.swf',
    'cp -r -f /Users/YourUser/Desktop/Mac/YourAppName/src/config.xml /Users/YourUser/Desktop/Mac/YourAppName/src/YourAppName.app/Contents/Resources',
    'tar -czvf /Users/YourUser/Desktop/Mac/YourAppName/bin-release/YourAppName.tar.gz ./YourAppName.app/',
    './YourAppName.app/Contents/MacOS/YourAppName.dmg',
    'cp -r -f /Users/YourUser/Desktop/Mac/YourAppName/src/YourAppName.app ~/Desktop',
];
async function main() {
    for (let s = 0 ; s < servers.length; s++) {
        console.log(servers[s]);
        const { stdout, stderr } = await exec(servers[s]);
        if (stderr) console.error(`error: ${stderr}`);
        console.log(stdout);
    }
}

main();

 

 

once that's done you will need to create a certificate (get freelancer help for https://appleid.apple.com)

next I am using the shell script:

 

 

VERSION="10.0"
APP_DIR="/Users/UserName/Desktop"
INFO_PLIST="/Users/UserName/Desktop/YourAppName.app/Contents/Info.plist"
cd "$APP_DIR"
cd YourAppName.app/Contents/Frameworks/Adobe\ AIR.framework/
rm Adobe\ AIR;
ln -s Versions/Current/Adobe\ AIR "Adobe AIR"
ln -s Versions/Current/Adobe\ AIR_64 "Adobe AIR_64"
rm -fr Resources/
ln -s Versions/Current/Resources/ Resources
cd Versions
rm -fr Current
ln -s 1.0 Current
cd "$APP_DIR"
xattr -cr YourAppName.app
/usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c "Set :CFBundleShortVersionString \"${VERSION}\"" "${INFO_PLIST}"
/usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c "Set :CFBundleGetInfoString \"${VERSION}, © 2019 Acme Inc All rights reserved.\"" "${INFO_PLIST}"
/usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c "Add :LSApplicationCategoryType string public.app-category.business" "${INFO_PLIST}"
codesign -f -v -s "Developer ID Application: Acme Inc (XXXXXXX)" YourAppName.app/Contents/Frameworks/Adobe\ AIR.framework/Versions/1.0/Adobe\ AIR_64
codesign -f -v -s "Developer ID Application: Acme Inc (XXXXXXX)" YourAppName.app/Contents/Frameworks/Adobe\ AIR.framework/Versions/1.0/Adobe\ AIR
codesign -f -v -s "Developer ID Application: Acme Inc (XXXXXXX)" YourAppName.app/Contents/Frameworks/Adobe\ AIR.framework/Versions/1.0
codesign -f -v -s "Developer ID Application: Acme Inc (XXXXXXX)" YourAppName.app/Contents/Frameworks/Adobe\ AIR.framework
codesign -f -v -s "Developer ID Application: Acme Inc (XXXXXXX)" YourAppName.app

 

 

next go to:

go to https://appleid.apple.com (provide passsword) and generate app specific password, label can be anything

 

paste the NEWLY GENERATED PASSWORD in 2 places in xcrun... in 

 

 

productbuild --component YourAppName.app /Applications/ YourAppName.pkg

productsign --sign "Developer ID Installer: Acme Inc (XXXXXX)" --keychain /Users/userName/Library/Keychains/login.keychain-db YourAppName.pkg YourAppNameSigned.pkg

xcrun altool --notarize-app --primary-bundle-id "comdigitalsignage" --username "user@Acme.com" --password "xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx" --file YourAppNameSigned.pkg

xcrun altool --notarization-history 0 -u "user@Acme.com" -p "xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx"

xcrun stapler staple YourAppNameSigned.pkg
~

 

 run commands manually from the above script, one by one

 

IMPORTANT: when running "xrun --notorization-history..." we need to wait after running it
so progress changes to success from Apple, before running the next command of "xrun stapler..."
you can continue and run "xrun --notorization-history..." over and over until you see
"progress" change to successfull and then finish by running "xrun --notorization-history..."

 

I know it's not easy... BUT, I just made your life so much easier, hire a freelancer that is aware of the Mac certification process and with the above info you should be able to compile your pure swf app to pkg for Mac Catalina 64 bit OS.

 

GOOD LUCK!

Re: I can tell you that the process is not easy... BUT it is...

Followed the steps at the link to fix Workout Creator and successfully removed the quarantine flag for Adobe AIR, but instead of an error message when I launch an .air file now, it simply does nothing.  No error message, no application window, nothing.

I followed the directions and it worked. The only thing I had to do was use the "sudo" command because it was giving me an errno 13 permission denied error. Sudo let me do it as admin. I just typed in my password and it started working.
