With AIR 3.3, it is possible to use platformsdk switch for iOS on a Windows machine too. For using this feature, one needs to copy the desired iOS SDK (iPhoneOS.x.y.sdk) on their Windows machine and use the platformsdk switch of the ADT:
-provisioning-profile <path to .mobileprovision>
<output IPA file>
<application.xml> <SWF> <assets> -extdir <path to extensions folder>
-platformsdk <path to the iOS SDK folder>
The following ways of copying the SDK are recommended to preserve the symlinks:
- Compress the iOS SDK using “zip -r” on the terminal and copy it using “cp -R”. Extract on the Windows machine.
- Copy the dmg on a Windows machine and extract it to get the iOS SDK.
Currently, platformsdk can’t be used for iOS in Flash Builder on Windows.
