@elena : I having trouble with Desktop Air application, no problem with the simulator.
Is there a way to know which part of the qnx framework don't work on desktop since you point the fact that Dialogs call playbook's native code ?

In listening to the MAX 2010 presentation found here
Under Dialogs, it talsk about that the Dialog classes communicate to a service that displays the dialog and it is not a part of the application display list. this may explain why this and other singleton classes crash on the AIR side, since those services are not running.
For this to probably work as an AIR application to help speed development, they would have to supply a runtime service to respond to these types of requests, or proxy it out to simulate the same behavior. I vote (if I had one) for a service/application that can respond to Alerts, simulate other services like batter changes, swipes, accelerometer, geolocation, etc. Simple AIR application with inter-process communication would make this possible.
