I have 5 or 6 AIR based apps after I did an update last month, none of them will work. I just re-installed and updated AIR again today and re-installed all the apps multiple times and when I go to one it trys to open the last I installed for every app it only opens the last installed. App installions always end with "faled to open app" and in the log I see this "Error: Missing necessary file META-INF/AIR/application.xml" not sure?

Windows 7 (all lastest updates)

Latest Air (13.057 I believe?)

How do I fix this, why did it break?

I guess no one knows how to fix this piece of crap platform. I'm going to start a campaign for software vendors to stop using AIR because there's no support for it and nothing works on it, and no one knows why.

All I need to know is what this means and how do I fix it:

[2014-04-19:23:29:07] Got an unexpected fatal error while accessing app for launch: Error: Missing necessary file META-INF/AIR/application.xml

[2014-04-19:23:29:24] Application Installer end with exit code 7

I uninstalled AIR and all the apps that used air cleared caches and rebooted. Re-installed the latest AIR and 1 current air app and this is the last update in the log.

Nobody uses any AIR apps that's what I can summize because there is a major issue and no one knows a thing. I have 7 AIR apps none of them work, they all conflict with one another after repeated re-installs, and re-peated AIR version installs from latest to 4.0, 3.6.3.3,

Hello,

I could install and run the AIR application successfully with AIR 4.0, 12.0 and 13.0.

Looking into the log, it seems that "missing application.xml" and "Application Installer end with exit code 7" issues have been there from 2014-02-09, below is the detailed log seen from http://ge.tt/2IDeU4b1/v/0?c. This issue maybe caused by the application.

Is there an application.xml under C:\Program Files (x86)\YourApplicationXXX\META-INF\AIR\ ?

If possible, could a bug against this issue be logged in https://bugbase.adobe.com/, and upload the AIR application which does not work. That would be very helpful to triage and find the root cause for this issue.

Thanks your support!
