If you have downloaded Market Samurai, and you're having trouble running the installer file, you might have a different program trying to run the file.

Here are the steps involved in setting up Adobe AIR to handle all .air file types:

1. The first step, if you haven't done it already, is to download a current version of Market Samurai from your personalised download page.
