I am going to share how to install Adobe AIR Runtime on your Android Emulator. First of all, you ensure to install Android SDK. I’ve done and the version I downloaded is “installer_r08-windows.exe (Recommended)”. I can’t wait to share it to you. Get started.

After you install it, you click “Start” to open “Command Prompt” to change folder to “platform-tools of Android”. In my case, this folder is on the path(“C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools”) of my laptop.

Step 2) download and unzip Adobe AIR Runtime
You can go to Adobe website( to download Adobe AIR Runtime. I did and put it on my laptop. You can find the “Runtime.apk” on the path (C:\Users\Jack\Desktop\AdobeAIRSDK\runtimes\air\android\emulator\).

After that, wait could minutes, you will see the successes message that means Adobe AIR Runtime is installed on you android emulator.
