Network Issue in AIR

I just wasted 4 hours on this problem and figured i might aswell document it, so that if someone else is going to run into the same issue, they won’t have to suffer the same 4 hours that i just did.

If you use AIR Applications under Windows and all of sudden those apps can’t connect to the internet anymore, make sure that your Internet Explorer is not “Working Offline”. You can check in the Menu of Internet Explorer under Tools -> Work Offline. If it has a checkmark, remove it and your apps should be working fine again.

I’m really suprised that the Windows Version of AIR apparently retrieves it’s Network Capabitilies via Internet Explorer and that this behaviour is in no way documented anywhere. Hopefully Adobe will changes this or atleast make sure that people now about this.

  1. Its no so much air getting its settings from IE, but rather that they both use the Windows OS settings. Can be gotcha, especially when you are behind a proxy.

    That’s unreasonable, AIR is supposed to be a streamlined cross-platform experience, not filled with multiple platform specific issues like IE’s settings?! I hope Adobe quickly fixes this…

    Mattjpoole is actually right. The problem is that the windows api’s apparently allow for such functionality and AIR seems to be using it. Hopefully they will change the behaviour though so that AIR atleast checks for offline or online status and informs the user about this.

    may be copied and moved around. A Play – Station network card,
    permits you to buy products and items from online retailers of
    Play – Station that you can freely use for those who have a PSN Code Generator card.
    Now you have your PS3 powered down, it is time to install the PS3 Sixaxis drivers and

    The best prices tend to be situated on the online, however, you
    can always go down to your gambling shop to look at what they may have.

    One is located on right side of controller and other one is around the left side of controller.

    wireless, is like a dream, but it’s a reality; you then become part from the game
    and you’re the game. However, when you download any Xbox emulator software available within
    the internet, you need to consider checking the
    reviews first and finding out if there is any good or bad feedback from the current users.
