Hosting updates for AIR Help

After you publish your initial Adobe AIR application, you can correct and revise the content as needed. By default, when a user launches the Help application, it displays the online content, so the displayed Help contains your updates.

When you generate a new version of an Adobe AIR application, a Help content configuration file is created along with the output. This XML file is unique for each version of the Help application. It contains information about the location of the published Help application, the Help ID, and the version number. Place this XML file with the Help application installer on the specified shared server location for users. When a user’s installed version checks for updates from this location, the Help application is updated.

Create and host an update

1)Right-click Adobe AIR in the Single Source Layouts pod, and select Properties.

2)Specify the updated information for your Help content.

Since you are updating existing Help content, retain the Help title and Help ID of the Help output you configured earlier, but update the version number.

3)In the Adobe AIR dialog box, select the View group and select Enable Auto Update, if it is not enabled already.

4)Specify the location of the updated Help content configuration file (XML file) that is hosted on a shared location or web server.

To distribute Help updates within your network, select the file path. To distribute outside the network, select a web server location.

5)Update any other parameters you require, such as resource tabs.

6)Generate the Help output formats.

Post an update

You can post an update for the Adobe AIR application at the specified web server address (HTTP location) or in the network folder.

1)Generate Help and then post the updated Help application installer and the associated XML file to the web server or folder.
