it seems that the latest link
get cached by Chrome and does not necessarily give you the latest version

but on the archived SDK page you get the versioned link
which should work better

And don’t forget that the AIR SDK v25 is also available in 64bit for Windows
64 bit AIR 25 SDK & Compiler Beta – Captive apps only (Windows)
I think it should be updated soon

And finally let’s welcome back flashplugin as full fledged citizen in the Linux world :slight_smile:

for ex on Ubuntu: $ apt-cache search flashplugin

flashplugin-installer - Adobe Flash Player plugin installer
flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound - Adobe Flash Player platform support library for Esound and OSS
