Hi,

running a flash CS6 created captive desktop app (AIR 18.0.0.199) from a write protected USB stick on Win8 and Win10 results in error dialog boxes poping up (~translated message: "The device is write protected and data can not be written.").

The app does not write any data.

The error dialog boxes pop up each time the app loads a swf. You have to press continue to keep the app running.

Boxes appear each time a swf is loaded, but only the first time for each swf loaded.

The app runs from on same stick on Win7 or if copied to a CD without any error message poping up.

Any idea? Is there maybe a caching mechanism active which fails on a write protected stick?

Klaus

The Air app itself nor the operating system was not responsible for this malfunction.

The dialog boxes are generated by security software Avira Pro with enabled real-time-scanner.

The app is able to run without problems in combination with some other security software on write protected USB sticks without problems.
