- Save the page.
- To preview the page as an AIR app, right-click on the file name in the Dreamweaver File panel, and select Preview in Adobe AIR.
- To package up the application as an AIR file ready for distribution and installation, right-click on the file-name and select Package as Adobe AIR Application. You’ll be prompted for the application name, version information, the root content file (which file to load when the application starts up), application window details, as well as for any other files to include. (The settings provided here are saved in the generated application.xml file). Click the package button, and you’ll have an AIR application. It’s as simple as that.
