Error when running captive runtime .exe from root directory of drive.

Platform: Windows

Specifics: Captive runtime desktop app using an ANE.

Problem:  I am distributing the app on a flash drive. Ideally,the .exe will be on the root of the drive, so the user will not need to enter a subdirectory. I'm mostly concerned about users moving the software and getting frustrated by this error.

The error is "Adobe Air: The installation of this application is damaged. Try re-installing or contacting the publisher for assistance."

Here's an example. Importantly, this error only occurs when an ANE is included. I tried a few different ANE files created by others, and simply adding them to the project produces the error. I don't even need to use the ANE anywhere in my code.

This is a simple application with a few blank buttons. Try extracting in a subdirectory somewhere, and then moving to the root of a flash drive or any other drive. However, I don't recommend running code from strangers on the top directory of your C:\ drive.

Additionally, I installed Apache Flex 4.12 but the error persists. The text simply changed to "Initial content could not be loaded for this application. Try re-installing or contacting the publisher for assistance."

I did some more testing. Same issue occurs if I create a captive runtime app from Flash Pro. It also happens when I use the Adobe Air installer, but install to the root directory.

Can anyone think of a workaround?
