Dear all

We produce a range of 'multimedia' projects in Flash for a client. These projects could include video (as part of the swf file), animation etc. and are primarily delivered online. However, so that their sales force can use an 'offline' version of these projects, we have been taking the swf and creating a projector/exe. This enables the client to run the project from a laptop.

Some of their salesforce are now using Playbooks and some iPads and they cant' view the .exe's produced in this way.

I've read some fairly confusing info on converting a .swf file to Adobe Air format, enabling people to view content from a desktop application. I wonder if this would work for our projects - instead of producing and exe from a .swf, we'd 'convert' the swf to Air?

Does this sound possible as a solution? If so, any further info from those who know about making a straight conversion from one to another would be great.

Thanks in advance
