Issue with AIR xml file

Hello, I am having trouble understanding the error the command prompt is kicking out.  It says there is a namespace missing error 101 but I checked and I couldnt find a problem after comparing to others I have seen.  Any assistance would be awesome. Thanks.

Re: Issue with AIR xml file

You should add the following to replace the top line of your XML:

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="no"?>
<application xmlns="http://ns.adobe.com/air/application/2.5">

 

 

The key is specifying the xmlns=... in the application tag. I don't know if the XML tag is strictly necessary, but the examples I've seen use it.
