I have a project that I am trying to deploy in Adobe Flash CS5 as an Adobe Air project as an Adobe Actionscript 2.0 compatible project since it was written in Adobe ActionScript 2.0.  If I try to deploy it now, I get an error that something is not supported in ActionScript 3.0.  How do I change which ActionScript my project is referencing?

Unfortunately Adobe AIR only works with Actionscript 3.0

Your project would need to be rewritten in AS3 - there is no AS2 engine in AIR

You could write a new AIR project in AS3 which loads your AS2 SWF into it with Loader class. Yes you cannot develop any further but you can at least convert it as an AIR product as in deployable product and yes whatever you do from this point, you probably need to pick up AS3 skill.
