How to prevent window minimizing in Air/Flex application

Hello,
I have an Adobe Air application that I need to prevent users from minimizing the window. I think the problem is with app.xml file. I've tried setting the  <minimizable> tags within the initialWindow node, but it has no effect. XML file attached.

Thanks,
Mike
