The .air file extension does not register on Windows Vista (Adobe AIR)

Issue

When you double-click an .air file after a successful installation of Adobe AIR on Windows Vista, you receive an "unknown type" error and the file no longer has the Adobe AIR icon associated with it.

Reason

The .air file extension is not being registered properly on Windows Vista due to locked file-type association in the registry entries.

Solution
