Hello,

As the author of this post How do I enable hardware acceleration in an air exe? , I am trying to enable hardware acceleration inside my AIR application

If the user has disabled hardware acceleration in his flash player's settings, context3d.driverInfo will say "Hw_disabled=userDisabled"

His only way to re-enable it is to open Internet Explorer or Firefox and right click on a flash content, then check "Enable hardware acceleration"

I (we) would like to be allowed to re-enable it directly inside the AIR app (via actionscript code) and not telling the user to open a browser and check some random checkboxes (cause you know it's not very user-friendly...)

A bug has been opened here Bug#3843535 - Disabling Hardware Acceleration in IE flash plugin disables it in AIR EXEs and is marked as fixed but nothing is fixed : there's still no way to enable hardware acceleration in desktop AIR application

Thanks

Hello,

I pushed to get this bug fixed and was under the impression that we addressed this back in v16.  Can you share a sample app so I can have our team take a look?

Thanks,

Chris

So sorry for wasting your time
