Adobe Air error

#1 Edited by BD_Mr_Bubbles (1678 posts) -

Every time I try to launch the game I get an error saying it needs an updated version of Adobe Air, I have the latest version anyone have any ideas?

EDIT: fixed it, apparently the game doesn't like it when you extract the zip to a different folder than where it was downloaded. Extracted the game in the same directory as the initial zip file and it worked.

Restart your computer.

Did that fix it?

Yes: Cool.

No: Try uninstalling AIR from Add/Remove Programs and reinstall it from here.

@BD_Mr_Bubbles: That's very weird. Are you moving the .exe file out of the main folder? It has to be inside that folder, because all of the necessary AIR components are there. It shouldn't require AIR to be installed on your PC, because it's running its own contained version of it.

If that doesn't work, you can always run the .swf version of the game in a browser. Not perfect, but it works.

Don't forget that you can contact me directly for support at contact@davidsgallant.com

@BD_Mr_Bubbles: What the...? You somehow managed to extract it in a way that destroyed the directory structure. Files that should be within folders are all out and about. Not sure how that would have happened. At least you fixed it.

Yeah game is pretty good, as for the extraction process I used I dunno maybe its my zip extract program (freeware, 7zip) but I never had any other problems with it, Great work though.
