I cannot install the BlackBerryAir.app on Mac OSX 10.8.4

Hi 

 

I am a BB developer using the Flash Builder 4.7 IDE to develop cross platform AIR apps. I have updated to Fb 4.7, updated the Adobe AIR in Fb 4.7 to 3.7. When I try to add in suport for BB devices, either the Tablet (playbook) or the BB10 the installs always seems to freeze. 

The file 'BlackBerryAirSDK.app' nevers shows the disclaimer, licesne, or anything for that matter. It only shows a blank window with a glowing 'Next' button, which does nothing.

 

I have re downloaded the file 'BlackBerry-Air-SDK-Installer-3.2.0-Mac-201305291455.dmg' several times and always face the same issue. Any ideas what is going on?

I was able to work around it using the advice from this site : http://www.luboskocman.com/2013/06/workarounding-installanywhere-on-mac.html. I did not have the issue on my other dev machine running the same Mac OS, and Adobe AIR versions.

Thanks for following up. The link appears dead. Based on the title it looks you used an install anywhere workaround though. Good to know there are workaround currently.

For anyone that comes across this:

 

So part of the system requirements for install is Java 1.6 or higher.

There was a patch released by Apple that should fix Java 1.6 for you here:
