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.
For more information on this extension and the download link, please check below:
Kindly get back if you face any difficulties with the extension.
Flash Pro Team
I've uploaded a new cross-platform Projector Exporter, that allows you to export as .exe or .app on both Widows and Mac.
Let me know if you still face any issues.
I downloaded and installed the new projector tools and it seems to work fine on the PC EXE from the Mac platform. I have also made the Mac EXE and they run fine on the Mac that I made them on. However when I take the Mac version to on older Mac (running 10.5.8 and Flash 10.3.20) the Exe crashes. Not much of anything in the crash log. I have backed the Flash version down to 10.3 and set it to run in 32 bit mode, but the same result. Any ideas? Thanks!!!
I haven't had a chance to try it out on a Mac prior to 10.7. If you're trying to export it from a Mac prior to 10.7, it may not work as Flash Pro itself is not supported on them. If you're just trying to run the exported projector on a previous Mac, I'll need to check. Can you PM me your projector and the exact steps that you're following, leading to the crash.
I think I have tracked down the overall issue. It seems to play on any Mac running a version of flash that is higher than 10.3. Anything less than 10.3 it will crash. I have some older hardware that we have been keeping alive and those systems will not upgrade past 10.5.3 OS so they will also not take some of the newer tools.
If I play these on any OS that is at 10.6 + everything seems to be fine.
Does that make sense? Or is this just coincidental?
It seems Adobe has an extension that should correct this problem
, the right link to an extension that permit export a Flash anim as a projector is this : https://workspaces.acrobat.com/app.html#d=2k6XGRAOVUqeSlrPCW5SAw
(i asked it by Twitter at Adobe Exchange because the link on the website is broken).
Hope this will help !
Yes, that's the first version of the same extension that we tried to share through Adobe exchange. But due to some changes going on with the Exchange website, Flash Pro's extensions are not accessible through it temporarily. Hence we had to share it externally.
You can find the latest version of Projector extension here:
You shall also have this available within Flash Pro itself, in the upcoming update shortly!
