Download and Installation

Download Links for Titanium Desktop SDK 1.2.0 Release Candidate 2:
* Windows
* Mac OS X
* Linux 32-bit
* Linux 64-bit

You may download the related API Documentation here.

To install, you’ll want to download the appropriate distribution above and then extract into your Titanium directory.

For example, on OSX, your Titanium directory will be under either /Library/Application Support/Titanium or~/Library/Appcelerator Support/Titanium..

On Linux ~/.titanium.

On Windows 7 C:ProgramDataTitanium and on Windows XP C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersApplication DataTitanium

Once you locate your Titanium directory, extract the zip file into this directory. The zip file will expand the contents and create/overlay some new directories for 1.2.0-RC2.

NOTE for OSX users who use Safari to download: Safari by default will auto uncompress your downloads, how handy. However, if you have a directory named desktopsdk, your extracted directory will be renamed.

Now, you’ll need to restart Titanium Developer to pick up the new release. Once restarted, remember to change your application SDK version and then click the ‘Save’ button.

You should now be able to test with the release candidate software.

  1. Superb. But flash still only plays sound and no video; it’s only in version 1.0.0 that video works too. Also php doesn’t seem to work as in 1.1.0 – at least not for me.

  2. I can confirm that Flash is still not working (Lion & Windows 7). Both RC-1 and RC-2 crash on OS X Lion when you try to create a new window (have not tested on other versions of OSX). On Windows 7, getting sporadic “The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail” . The same error pops up when you try to launch Wunderlist, which I believe is running RC-2, and their users have referenced the problem in their support forums.
