A friend asked me today about setting up IIS to deliver AIR files on request. I've had this information in all of my AIR presentations, but for some reason I've never blogged about it. So here's the info. Hope it helps someone.

  • First, the MIME type for AIR files: application/vnd.adobe.air-application-installer-package+zip
  • Apache, set this in your httpd.conf file.
    • AddType application/vnd.adobe.air-application-installer-package+zip .air
  • Lighttpd
    • mimetype.assign = (
      ".air" => "application/vnd.adobe.air-application-installer-package+zip"
  • IIS
    • Select the HTTP Headers Tab
    • Select "File Types" and click "New Type"
    • For the extension enter ".air" and for the associated content type enter application/vnd.adobe.air-application-installer-package+zip
