Distribute Adobe AIR SDK
 
The Adobe AIR® SDK™ is available for distribution on a stand-alone basis or with another product. This includes, for example, distributing the Adobe AIR SDK within your department or organisation or outside your department or organisation with your software product such as an IDE or development tool.
 
Individual users
 
If you are a developer who wants to download the Adobe AIR SDK to create AIR applications, you do not need a Distribution Licence Agreement. Instead, you should download the Adobe AIR SDK directly from Adobe's website and use it in accordance with the individual use licence included in the SDK.
 
As part of the individual licence, you are allowed to redistribute many of the files included in the Adobe AIR SDK, but not the documentation or build tools, for example, under that licence agreement you may not distribute build files, compilers, runtime libraries or other contents of the Bin, Lib or Runtime directories, adl.exe, adl.bat or adt.jar. You must enter into the Adobe AIR SDK Distribution Licence Agreement in order to distribute documentation and build files.
 
Flex SDK individual licence
 
If you wish to distribute the Flex SDK please contact licence-flexsdk@adobe.com.
