    Workers in AIR

    I am working in Flash Pro CS6 to AIR 3.4 for Desktop. I have 4 files that I am referencing using the File class. I then find the modificationDate. Due to a slow network issue, this can freeze up the program about .5 sec per file!

    My first attempt at a solution was using the Worker class. However... in the worker, I am unable to use the File class because I need to compile in a .swf (correct me if I'm wrong). I tried using the MessageChannel class to share a FileReference, but it only showed up as an Object in the worker and I cannot convert it back to FileReference. Is there any solution to this problem? or alternatives?

    Thanks in advance

    According to the Actionscript reference the worker class is fine in Adobe AIR and then you should be able to use the File class.
