Files with .AIR file extension are associated with Adobe AIR software applications. AIR is short form of Adobe Integrated Runtime.
These files are used by software developers as they allow them to develop internet based applications which have the capability to run over different operating systems. This file is generally compressed before sharing to reduce its size for quick transfer. Once the user has developed an application using Adobe AIR environment, then the compiler compiles are the required file into one single executable file with extension AIR to create a package of the application having required files in the package.
In addition to the problem described above, i.e. the lack of the appropriate application to support the .AIR file, there may be several reasons that cause problems with opening and operation of the data format:
A quite common problem is the lack of application in the appropriate version. Even if you have an application, with the help of which you should open the .AIR file, you may have a problem with it because of its version. Perhaps in previous versions the application has not yet supported the .AIR file, so download the update and check again.
If you have already installed the appropriate application, and it is the correct version, the file may not open correctly, because the operating system does not have information that this program supports the file. So you need to "show" which program the computer should use. To do this:
It also happens that the file you want to open is corrupt and therefore there is no such possibility. In this situation, you should find its different version, or ask a person from whom you got, to send it again.
