//put a red square exactly halfway through the 2nd segment
			path.addFollower(createSquare(10, 0xFF0000), path.getSegmentProgress(2, 0.5));
//tween all of the squares through the path once (wrapping when they reach the end)
			TweenMax.to(path, 20, {progress: 1});
//while the squares are animating through the path, tween the path's position and rotation too!

I am running the latest up to date version of Flash Pro CC 2014 and the highest version of AIR available for publishing is Air 13. I just tested the LinePath2D code from our docs and your code with no errors.


The code in LinePath2D (and our demos) hasn't changed in quite a while and has exported flawlessly through many versions of Flash Player. 


It appears Air 14 is still in beta. Hopefully Adobe will get their bugs ironed out prior to release.


BTW, what line number was giving an error? That would be really helpful to know.

Thanks, we will see if anything looks like it could potentially be amiss in line 158 (doubtful).


Sorry, I do not have any advance info on when Adobe releases products.

The conditional logic there is perfectly valid, but I went ahead and reformatted it in a way that should be less offensive to AIR - see the latest version for that change.

currentTime was from v11. I assume you're using v12 in which case it should be time().
