Hi,

I was wondering if it was possible to integrate the complete Air SDK (and also the Flex SDK) as part of a paid software that I'm developing right now (meaning, provide with the sdk in the installation package). Or If I need to ask users to download it afterwards. And/or if using the SDK as part of a paid software is even permitted.

I know it must be written somewhere in a license document but I tried to read one of those and it's just impossible to read everything that is inside and I can't be certain that I understand exactly what is being said as English is not my first language (and especially not that very specific/technical english)

Thanks a lot.

You include the complete AIR package optionally when you come to package your App. It's a checkbox in the Project/Package dialog in Flash Builder. As that's the case I can only assume Adobe are okay with it and it's reflected in the licence.

This would be different from including the actual SDK, which is what you're asking, but I thought I'd reply (in lieu of an answer by Adobe) in case you were confused by the difference.

hi,

thanks for the answer.

Yes it's different. My app requires to use the Air SDK (not the air runtimes) to compile some files on the run. I would like to know if it's allowed to package the whole sdk folder with my app.

thanks.

thanks for your answer

so the clear answer is "no" ?

"No Distribution of Build Tools"

What I want is to compile some source code so I need the "build tools" I guess ?

So How does FlashDevelop to automatically install the aire sdk upon installation ? does it download it from adobe and then install it ? this looks like the same to me as to distribute the whole sdk...

FlashDevelop downloads SDK and not distribute it. If you make downloader

of SDK and than compile using DOWNLOADED and UNZIPPED - this will be not

the same as Distribution.
