When I try to open the installer.app, I get the message: "You cannot open the application Adobe AIR installer.app because it is not supported on this architecture".  I am running OS 10.5.8 on an iBook G4 (1.42 GHz PowerPC G4).  Help, please.  I do not understand the directions for getting the log msgs.

Hello,

I'm sorry you're running into this problem.  The error is being caused by the lack of support for the G4 processor in the AIR 2.5.1 runtime.  Please use AIR 1.5.3 instead.

Thanks,

Chris

Thank you, Chris. This worked. Seems like a clue, though, that it's

time to consider upgrading my system ---Sue

I have a similar problem, except the link you have provided is invalid.

This pops up:

"Not Found

The requested URL /air/mac/download/1.5.3/AdobeAIR.dmg was not found on this server."

Can you help with this?

Thanks, Kay

Hi Kay,

Did you manage to get round this problem as I also need to install the same version of Adobe Air for a Mac running OS 10.5.8.

Many thanks

Phil

What if it hangs there on the installation screen and does nothing? I'm running  OS 10.11.3

I have the same issue... It gets stuck on the install screen and just does nothing. I'm running Mac OS 10.11.3... Have you found a solution to this problem yet? Is this somehow related to Java?
