    Hi Patrick,

    Yes you can install a .air application. To do this in PDQ Deploy it is best to use a command step. If you want to use an Install Step then you would need to use a script as your install file (such as a .bat file).

    I created a package that contained two Command Steps. One step has a 32-bit condition and the other a 64-bit. I added the .air file (in this case pandora_2_0_8.air) using the Additional Files dropdown. (see attachment)

    The command to install Pandora on a 64-bit system was: 

    "%CommonProgramFiles(x86)%\Adobe AIR\Versions\1.0\Adobe AIR Application Installer.exe" -silent -location "%ProgramFiles(x86)%" ".\pandora_2_0_8.air"

    and on a 32-bit system:

    "%CommonProgramFiles%\Adobe AIR\Versions\1.0\Adobe AIR Application Installer.exe" -silent -location "%ProgramFiles%" ".\pandora_2_0_8.air"

    This worked great for me, but the installation didn't create a desktop icon.  Not sure if that was suppressed somehow or could be evoked with a switch.  Do you know where I can find a list of default switches to play with?  Thanks.

    Hi Hanks,

     

    Here what i use  to install my stuff and ts working

    command line for 32 bits system:

    "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe AIR\Versions\1.0\Adobe AIR Application Installer.exe"  -silent -eulaAccepted -desktopShortcut myapp.air"

     

     So my guess is you need -desktopShortcut
