What does AIR application install error "Error# 5100" mean ?

Sometimes when installing an AIR application, the installer refuses to proceed with the mysterious 'Error# 5100'.
This doesn't appear to be documented anywhere, but it actually means the temporary file space is full (i.e. /tmp/ on Linux).

Guess the 100meg cap on my tmpfs wasn't enough, eh :-)

It's true that this is one situation in which error 5100 is used, but it's not the only one. 5100 is actually a generic "install failed" code that's used in a variety of situations.

I'm not an expert by any means but I got this error code in linux and it was just because I was installing as a user that didn't have permission to install

well im on vista getting the code

Install it from tweetdeck.com/desktop .

OR try a different browser, or try clearing your browser cache.

I think the first one fixed it for me

HTH :)

You can resolve the problem using command line

sudo Adobe\ AIR\ Application\ Installer /full/path/file.air

Depending on what the generic code was actually meaning, it might, yes. At the very least tunning from the command line might reveal some out put that was hidden.
