Loading Blackberry SDK into Flash CS6

I'd like to use Flash CS6 to create my Blackberry App... I learnt that I had to use an older version of AIR (3.1) with the Blackberry 10 SDK..

 

Problem is.. I can't seem to get Flash CS6 to load 3.1 and recognize it... SDK manager say it wont do it.. Droping the older AIR folder in the main Flash CS6 doesn't work either....

 

Has anyone had success loading AIR 3.1 and the Blackberry 10 SDK into Flash CS6?

Re: Loading Blackberry SDK into Flash CS6

if you need something particular of BB10(like push services), well my best guess it's add the current BB10 swc libraries to the path with extern link. if you only want to uses Air-flash APIs, here the guie. its for playbook but its almost the same process.

Dach, I tried that method, and I get the error that the folder did not contain a valid AIR SDK. I added the airsdk.xml from the air 3.4 folder, and then got a message explicitly forbidding older versions of AIR:

Re: Loading Blackberry SDK into Flash CS6

You renamed the xml and changed the lines as directed?

You also restared Flash Pro?

I do not know what else i can add to those instructions.

 

 I wonder if anyone had any luck with that?

Re: Loading Blackberry SDK into Flash CS6

indeed I did. Are you 100% you're using CS6? It would appear CS6 has some sort of internal routine that blocks older versions of AIR

Re: Loading Blackberry SDK into Flash CS6

Well, the above failed (adding SDK), but after a restart of flash pro again, Air 3.1 shows up at the bottom of my list. Trying to run it I got an error about AIR2_5 not being defined in AIR_TestMovie.jsfl

 

I edited it to better match the other XML files and got this error on launch:

 

There is more than one definition of the AdobeAIR3_2 player.  Only the first definition will be used.
Test Movie terminated.
application descriptor not found

 

At least that's progress!
