Adobe Air error message - macOSX Catalina

I keep getting an error message aboutAdobe Air when I open an application (Traffic) that requires Adobe Air. The error message is: “Adobe AIR.framework” is damaged and can’t be opened.

 

This has begun since I updated to macOSX Catalina.

 

Why is this, and will an update be released to fix this?

I'm receiving this message upon updating to Catalina, as well.  We have a critical Flex application that depends on AIR to function.  Given the recent news of Adobe AIR's handoff to HARMAN I wouldn't hold my breath about Catalina support (at least, not without having to shell out big $$$).  Might be time to abandon AIR in favor of Electron...

 

In any case, for now it looks like you can get AIR (and any apps that depend upon it) to work by disabling System Integrity Protection on your Mac, but that's an extreme measure that I wouldn't advise outside of limited testing.  Seems like the AIR framework must try to install itself into the now read-only system partition.

Re: I'm receiving this message upon updating to Catalina, as...

Have you tried this ( taken from a similar thread )?

 

Apple has made changes to browing the file system by applications.

open your settings > security & Privacy.

Select tab privacy and scroll down the left list until you see "Full Disk Access"

Add your application to this and you won't have the read only problem again.

 

Please let us know if it works 🙂

Thanks gerardm13115154 for the reply,

I cannot speak to bethwilson's experience, but enabling full disk access for AIR and my application didn't resolve the issue -- I receive the same error message that indicates "The AIR Framework is Damaged".  I've still had no luck outside of disabling SIP.

Is there no other way than disabling SIP? Adding Adobe Air or Adobe Air related apps to "Full Disk Access" Does not solve this problem. The problem is in Adobe AIR.framework how do we add whole folder for full disk access?

 

If I install Adobe Animate, does the AIR that is installed with Adobe Animate works? Or is it causing the same problem?

Re: I'm receiving this message upon updating to Catalina, as...

Actually our Air 29 mac app works fine on Catalina however what has changed is the "malicious software" security warnings that show on install and launch. These may seem like a show-stopper at first however there is a way around:  - until you get the full mac developer certification:

Now click "open" and you can open the app and from now on it will open as normal without this.

 

So the trick is to CTRL + Click on the App to launch !

Do you package your .air app with a runtime? Or are you able to get air runtime (from https://get.adobe.com/air/) installed in this manner?

Re: I'm receiving this message upon updating to Catalina, as...

Thanks for the quick response @gerardm13115154. We don't have the dev resources to re-package all of our .air apps with a captive runtime, so hoping that Adobe/Harman are able to fix this issue for the standalone runtime soon!

I've not had a chance to try it , but maybe packaging with the AIR run time + setting AIR config to 64-bit.
Seems Catalina only runs 64-bit software.
From:
https://community.adobe.com/t5/Air/How-do-I-create-a-Captive-64-bit-Adobe-Air-Application-For/td-p/9...

Step 1

Make sure you have downloaded the correct SDK and you have added it to your project

Step 2

Add "-swf-version=40" (without quotes) into the Project properties -> compiler options -> Addition compiler options

OR

Add this to your .as3proj file <option additional="-swf-version=40" /> (if you do it this way, you will have to close and then re-open your project for this value to take effect.

Step 3

Add the NEW <architecture>64</architecture> into your application.xml file. I put this just below the <name> node

If you don't add this new node into your application.xml file, it will default to a 32bit application

Step 4

Build your Air Application.

I hope this helps people out and thanks a lot to ASWC for the help

Re: Adobe Air error message - macOSX Catalina

These few lines in the terminal will get you out of trouble

cd /Library/Frameworks
sudo xattr -r -d com.apple.quarantine ./Adobe\ AIR.framework

Then use:

ls -l@ ./Adobe\ AIR.framework/

to check the framework is no longer quarantined

Hi James, We are also running MacOS Catalina 10.15.1 with a few Adobe AIR Apps and your lines of code above worked a treat! Thank you very much! - Hooty Creative
