Having hella issues just trying to find a way to to let Adobe know they have a support document that has a code typo on it.

T. Ravi Kumar is the author of this article.

Here is the link to the article
Adobe AIR applications installation issue

There is a code typo on this article - if you're copying and pasting the code into your terminal window it's NOT going to work. It took me quite awhile to figure out what was up.

<AIR_SDK_compiler_path>\bin\adt –package -storetype pkcs12 -keystore  <app_signing_certficate_path> myApp.air application.xml .

The dash in front of 'package' should be -- (two dashes), not the — character which is an elongated dash that does not work in terminal as two dashes.

So use this code (and yes the . at the end of the line does matter)

<AIR_SDK_compiler_path>\bin\adt --package -storetype pkcs12 -keystore  <app_signing_certficate_path> myApp.air application.xml .

and please please please Adobe please update this article to fix this typo.

Hi dangerdangerhotrod​,

Thanks for informing the problem you faced. The dash infront of package seems to be a font issue. There is no need to use double dash. The command requires single dash only. We would get the same updated. The . in the end for the applications having images and other resources which the application requires while packaging. The . means that take all the resources in the folder available.

Thanks!

Thanks for updating it but it is still wrong. It was updated to just one dash, but in order to work it needs to be two.

like this:

--package

The line should be

<AIR_SDK_compiler_path>\bin\adt --package -storetype pkcs12 -keystore  <app_signing_certficate_path> myApp.air application.xml .

Hi dangerdangerhotrod​,

The command mentioned now is correct. It does not require double-dash. The issue was on Win 7 when we copy and paste the command in cmd, due to the format, the - was being picked as some other character.

You can try executing the command now. It will work.

Thanks!

Okay - thank you! I had used the double dash so knew that worked but get that it would work with a single dash. Thank you for updating the document!
