Windows 7: Can't Install Adobe AIR

15 Jun 2010   #21

Windows 7 32 bit Home Premium
No Joy

Still no luck I`m afraid. The problem lies with which when run always asks for AIR to be updated even tho it has been.

Thanks for trying to help. Maybe it`s not a real app. Maybe they`ve just released it as a joke because that is what it is. Sigh......

I'm in the same boat. I had to install AIR in order to run the Pandora Desktop app. The other day, I launched Pandora and a window popped up saying there was an AIR update. I tried to install but nothing happened.

I went to Adobe's web site and downloaded AIR 2 from there. Double clicked to launch the installer and, again, nothing.

Uninstalled old version of AIR and ran CCleaner. Same results. Tried to launch AIR installer and nothing.

Finally found an old version (1.5.3) of AIR and re-installed it without issue.

All is right with the universe except for the fact that I cannot upgrade to the latest version of AIR.

The forum threads on Adobe's web site dealing with this same issue are all dead ends as well.



Just ran and, sure nuff, a window popped up requiring an AIR update. I clicked "OK" and it ran without a hitch...kinda. It didn't install AIR 2, it installed version 1.5.3.

My head hurts.

Okay I'm a lesser that mortal person. I did the Adobe update about a week ago and all of the Adobe programs work just fine including Air. 1. Remove all Adobe programs, (all of them.) I use Revo. When using Revo follow the instruction precise. Go to the Adobe site and down load them all with the latest update. Be careful and watch for add ons that they stick in there that you might not want. I have at times used Filehippo. This worked for me. If it doesn't work for you folks I have no next step.

First off, type into your search engine "Windows Install Clean Up". Run the application and find Adobe Air and delete it using the application. You should then download the latest version of Adobe Air and install it. Problems solved.

This just keeps getting curiouser and curiouser.

Was just playing Pandora and, sure 'nuff, the AIR updater window appeared.

I clicked on update and it looked like the same old story. App disappeared and I thought it was going to be another no go.

However, while I was looking for a download of the Windows Installer Clean Up (not available from Microsoft anymore by the way) to rid AIR from my system, AIR 2 just decided to go ahead and install!

So, maybe we are all being inpatient? Maybe it takes awhile longer for things to catch? I dunno. It took like 15 minutes while I was rooting around the web for Windows Installer Clean Up Utility then, BAM, AIR 2!

No WAY! Thanks for the inspiring words Bug but despite my almost god-like powers
of patience it in no way, shape or form will do the same for me.


If only there was a maybe. I`m stuck down a dark, dead end with no batteries in my torch. It sure is lonely here. Has everybody else got it working now then??

Am I the only one left??

Can anybody hear me..................?

Fixed it

Hi All,

Just to follow up I had this issue and basically I just opened regedit and searched "Adobe AIR" and deleted all entries except for the ones referring to the AIR debugger, which is part of my Flash CS5 Installation. Hope this helps out.

In case anyone is still having trouble installing the latest version of Adobe Air, this is what I did and it worked. This is after I tried every solution I could find to no avail. I decided to get Adobe Air installed through a third party install. I used
Go to, select Adobe Air and click "Get Installer" on the bottom of the page, run the installer and Adobe Air should install! Hope this will help somebody, worked for me!!
