Missing the AIR target for OpenFL apps


I’ve downloaded the latest FlashDevelop & HaxeDevelop and have created a new OpenFL app. However in the drop down choice, AIR is missing. Therefore I cannot access any of the AIR APIs with OpenFL apps. Alternatively if I create a normal AIR Haxe app and try to add OpenFL that crashes with hundreds of build errors. So there is no way to target AIR apps with OpenFL?

AIR is missing



Maybe take a read on this topic see if it helps.


The AIR topic is fairly new, so FlashDevelop has not added it to its hard-coded set of targets for OpenFL

However, the list in FlashDevelop is editable, so go ahead and type in “air” in the drop-down, and give it try :wink:


I did this and it worked. Thank you so much!
