Hello

I'm just reporting a small issue with the new Air 20.

In my Flash CC when I switch to Air 20, in the General tab  of the iOS Settings, the Version field is empty.

If I fill it with the version of my app, it creates a publishing error because it creates a version tag in the app.xml that air doesn't recognize. In the other hand, the versionNumber tag in the app.xml is unchanged.

This problem occur only for iOS publishing.

Workaround is easy because I can change the Version by using previous air version or I can edit the app.xml.

Hi,

Thanks for reporting the issue.

We are able to reproduce the problem with application version number not being remembered by Adobe Flash CC and we are further investigating it.

However, when we correct the application version and repackage the application we are not seeing any error as you mentioned.

Could you please share more details regarding this error and the app.xml that is generated.

Regards,

Adobe AIR Team

Hi,

If I try to fill the (empty) Version field in the iOS settings, a new tag is add to the app.xml:

  </extensions>

  <version>1.0.0</version>

</application>

This creates an error during the publishing.

Hope this helps

I think the tag should be "versionNumber" not "version".

The tag position isn't good either.

I'm getting this problem as well and it's preventing me from using Flash Pro to publish my AIR application.

For some reason, AIR 20 (both the released SDK and the beta version) add a 'version' tag at the bottom of the XML file, which then causes the error. I'm assuming this should be 'versionNumber' instead, which is what all previous AIR versions have been using?

In any case, it completely renders AIR 20 and onwards useless since I can't tell it to *not* create the <version> tag - so I don't understand why there aren't more reports of this?

So - 7 days are gone... Flash Pro with AIR 20 SDK is useless and our work stopped! The version number is an important part of any release. The final release of AIR 20 is useless for any development! Nice work ADOBE!

There is an easy workaround for this, see:

Flash Pro / AIR 20 currently can't be used for iOS apps? 😞

I'm using CS6 which has this issue. The workaround that I use is to leave the version field blank in the Air for iOS settings. Then edit the app.xml and delete the version tags and edit the versionNumber tag with the version number I want. It will then build with no errors. It's important to have the version field blank in the iOS settings, otherwise the version tag will get recreated on the build and throw an error.
