I mentioned in a previous post
that the AIR Runtime (required by the Download Client) will be maintained by HARMAN in future.
At the beginning of 2021, Adobe removed the links to their own AIR runtime, redirecting to their blog post
detailing these plans.
HARMAN have now made their own version (v33) of the AIR Runtime available: https://airsdk.harman.com/runtimeFor new players, we recommend you install the appropriate AIR Runtime from HARMAN.
For players who already have the Adobe version of the AIR Runtime, we currently suggest you keep using this version, because the HARMAN version has a couple of issues that are detailed below.
This is what you will currently see when installing the Download Client, because the HARMAN Runtime does not yet support publisher verification:
HARMAN have documented this known issue on their Runtime download page, and we understand they are working on a new solution for verifying the publisher. If you use our download page
, this will always be a safe installation link, and for the security conscious I will keep an updated list of MD5 hashes on this post.
Also for macOS users, on first use of the Download Client you will be asked to allow access to Adobe information stored in your keychain:
This is related to the verification above, but for now all you need to do is leave the password blank and click “Always Allow”
— you should only have do to this once.
