AIR SDK 3.0 and WebWorks SDK

[ Edited ]

If you are using Adobe Air SDK 3.0 and do not have version 2.7 installed, please perform the following steps before installing the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK.


1)  In the root directory of Adobe Air SDK 3.0, open the "AIR SDK Readme.txt" file.

2)  In the first line, change the text "Adobe AIR 3.0 SDK" to "Adobe AIR 2.7 SDK"


This will allow you to install the WebWorks SDK for Tablet OS with the 3.0 Adobe AIR SDK installed.


The Adobe AIR SDK 2.7 can be downloaded here:  http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/853/cpsid_85304.html

Has anyone tried this?  I downloaded AIR SDK 3.0 today and  I followed the steps to change the readme file as indicated before I even downloaded the BB WebWorks SDK.  Then I downloaded and installed the BB WebWorks SDK.  I received the error that I have the incorrect AIR SDK selected.


I'm running this on Windows 7.


I tried putting 2.7.1 in the readme file  instead of 2.7 and now the installation worked.

Re: AIR SDK 3.0 and WebWorks SDK

This problem still exists with the Webworks SDK for Playbook OS, but the suggested fix does not work. Is there any update on what exactly the SDK is looking for in order to decide whether it is valid or not. Mike Street Milton Keynes, UK
