Hi all,

 

Just to make sure that I have you covered for this release, go through my notes before you complete installing Flash Professional CC.

 

Read this first: http://blogs.adobe.com/flashpro/2013/05/14/what-is-flash-pro-cc/

 

<hush>Apart from the software, I hear that you will get access to a wonderful range of free tutorials. More on that when I get it to it myself.</hush>

 

There have been many changes to menu options and the user interface in this release.

 

I have created these notes over discussions I have had in the past few days. If you find anything that is incorrect or misleading, please bring it to my notice.

 

Read the system requirements for the update:

Perpetual license holders that have upgraded to the cloud

  • You do not have to uninstall your CS6 applications unless you are running short of system requirements. You will, however, have to reinstall all your plug-ins after you install the CC applications.
  • If you are uninstalling, ensure that you run the uninstaller instead of any shortcut options available. If you are having problems installing your software after an uninstall, retry after using the Cleanup tool http://www.adobe.com/support/contact/cscleanertool.html
  • When you open the Adobe Application manager, you will be asked to install the Creative Cloud application. Install the software before you start installing your applications. If you are having problems installing, close and re-open your browser. For more information on the CC application, see http://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-desktop.html. (This link will be up post announce).
  • After the Desktop CC application is installed, proceed to install your applications as required. Ensure that you fulfill the system requirements for each software before install.
  • Before you call support for any help, see http://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/topics/getting-started.html. It would be a good idea to post your query on the Downloading, installing, and setting up forum (http://forums.adobe.com/community/download_install_setup). Other users will probably be up and running the same time as you do, and they might be able to offer solutions.

For existing Creative Cloud users that are updating

  • DO NOT use Help > Update to install your applications. There is no harm in doing so, but that route will not help you install our new CC desktop application manager.
  • Open your Adobe Application Manager. You will be asked to install the CC desktop application. Complete installing the CC desktop application before you proceed. If you are having problems installing, close and re-open your browser.  For more information, see http://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-desktop.html. (This link will be up post announce)
  • Update your software as required from the list in the application.
  • If you have uninstalled any software previously, and your update isn't installing, run the Cleanup tool and retry http://www.adobe.com/support/contact/cscleanertool.html
  • If you have not updated any previously installed CS6 application that is still present on your computer, you could be asked to update the CS6 version as well. Do not get confused or worried.
  • Before you call support for any help, see http://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/topics/getting-started.html. It would be a good idea to post your query on the Downloading, installing, and setting up forum (http://forums.adobe.com/community/download_install_setup). Other users will probably be up and running the same time as you do, and they might be able to offer solutions.

 

I will be hearing you through the next few days, and will be reporting from the various social platforms. While I am sure that most of you will sail smoothly, I will try to guide the rest over any rough waters.

 

Thanks,

Preran
