how do you publish a projection ( .exe and macos projection) on flash cc. It seems impossible !!!!!!!!!! it's making me mad !!!
correct, publishing for a projector has been removed from flash cc.
if you want to request it be re-added, https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform
as long as they allow cs6 to be activated, you're ok. as long as they allow cs6 to be downloaded, future cc subscribers are ok.
i don't know adobe's future plans for either but, as of today, they've been pretty good about allowing users of older software to (re)download old software versions and they've been more than generous allowing users to activate all adobe (and even macromedia) older software.
Maybe Adobe doesn't know it yet, but yes, there are people, with computers that doesn't have flash player installed and they wont install it just because I ask them to do so.
What they were thinking!? It's beyond me to imagine what drive them to delete such feature. Knowing that almost no one want flash on the web, desktop was the only platform were people still love flash, and they remove the avilitiy to export to desktop platforms?
I hope this "feature" come back, jumping to Flash CC seems really backwards
• Doesn't have auto formating for coding with it existed since Flash CS3, maybe a lot before than that.
• Can't export as .exe and .app
Well, at least that's an option. Thanks, how do I download Flash CS6? Tried on the Adobe site, but will I be charged if I hit the Buy option? By the way, I still believe that having the feature back on CC is a better solution, hope you agree.
You should see Flash Professional CS6 in the Creative cloud applciation for installation. else you can also navigate to https://creative.adobe.com/products/flash and click on the version dropdown as shown below and then click on download button.
I have also published to .exe file in previous versions of Flash, but experience a lack of this option now in CC.
But under the "Publish settings" you can target the file to "air for desktop" and the in Air settings window you can choose output as "windows installer" which makes an exe file.
Whe the exe.-file is opened, you will innstall the air-app with its own icon. A little more complicated than earlier, but final result is nice, I think. (you can also air for android or ios for instance in same way - and there you have an app on your phone).
I've only just come across this latest feature stripping game Adobe are playing.
Please give us a choice Adobe and stop taking away tools that we use!! Also makes me mad sparrowatelier!
Feature request form filled in, lets hope enough people do it so we get this option back.
It's such a useful tool to be able to publish a quick .exe or .app
The projectors also have the benefit of going full screen without the interface showing, unlike the .Air App. I'm sure you can script this within Flash CC but it's just another hoop to jump through. The .Air app also wanted to install software, something a lot of clients have no control over because of their IT departments who stop them from installing/updating software.
Edit: After opening the Flash CC file in Flash CS6 I had a popup memory error that said that there was not enough memory to process the ActionScript 3.0 scripts. After some trial and error it seems to only like to target Flash Player 9. It then processed fine. If you get a error message about changing the memory allocation try targetting FP9 first!
While we are looking at getting Projector support as part of a future Flash Pro CC update, here is an extension that allows you to export projectors from Flash CC for now.
