Using AIR browser invocation with AIR apps that have the runtime embedded

Adobe AIR * AIR.SWF in-browser API

After finding the article above which sets out how to launch an AIR app from the browser I attempted to create some test files.

When publishing an AIR Desktop app using AIR15 and setting the target as 'Application with runtime embedded' the publishing fails with the error "116. Browser invocation is not supported with this target".

The documentation mentions nothing about apps with the runtime embedded and I'm presuming it was written before embedding was possible.

Could anyone please confirm that this is in fact the case. That you CANNOT launch an AIR app with the runtime embedded from the browser?

Many thanks,

Mark

Your assumptions seem to be correct... captive runtume does not support browser invocation out of the box, probably because that would usually be part of the installer. If you take a look at this page, it suggests ways to implement your own URI handlers for Windows registry and OSX:
