Hi,

I work in an environment where users do not have local admin rights on their workstations. I have read the following useful article, and plan to use that for development:

http://www.adobe.com/devnet/air/articles/customize-setup-for-AIR-app-with-captive-runtime.html

However, as the article points out, users will not be alerted in the case of AIR runtime updates. My question: is there an alternative? Is it possible to check when AIR dll files are updated programatically? What is recommended?

Thanks,

No, there is no way provided by AIR SDK to checked for updated Runtime for a captive application.

If the developer of the captive AIR app feels the need of using a newer Runtime (becuase of a new feature or to make use of any performance improvement), they should re-pacakge their app using the latest SDK and push an update of the app.

Thanks for the answer, Romil. My main fear is not updating in time to handle a security fix. Is there any sort of RSS feed or other Adobe-sponsored method of being notified as new AIR updates are deployed?
