    Question on CCloud Flash Builder 4.6 install

    bobba1 Community Member

      Hello,

       

      I curretly have Flash Builder 4.6 installed on my computer - it was originally installed as FB4.5 when I installed MC CS 5.5  -- but the 4.6 version was made available as a separate installation from MC.5 when it became available last November -- so I now have FB 4.6 as a stand-alone install.

       

      My question is this -- do I need to uninstall my stand-alone installation of FB4.6 in order to install MC6 via my CCloud subscription (when it becomes available on May 11) -- or will the FB 4.6 install in CS6 install without errors (in a different location?). The reason I would like to do this is that FB can sometimes be buggy and I have the current install working well. I would like to install the new FB 4.6 and make sure i works and compiles well before uninstalling  last December's stand-alone verson of FB 4.6.

       

       

      Thanks

          Hi Bobba1,

           

          The apps included in the Creative Cloud Membership are installed individually, so you could just not install FB and leave the current stand alone install you have as is.

            Thanks David,

             

            Just two questions

             

            1. Is the FB 4.6 version in CC the same as the FB 4.6 I installed in December, or is it a newer release (eg 4.6.2 etc)? If the CC version is the latest would want that

             

            2. If I did keep my current FB4.6 -- would the CC "know" that it should receive the latest updates. I keep reading where CC apps are always up-to-date with latest releases and builds -- so if I have an "old" FB4.6 -- would the CC updater give it the same updates as if I had installed it directly from CC?

             

            Thank you

              I think its the same version as you installed previously. I'm just seeing 4.6 as the version number.

               

              For switching it to subscription, it is possible to do so without reinstalling. You would just need to deactivate it from the Help menu, close and relaunch it, after which it will be in trial mode and you can sign in with the Adobe ID associated with your subscription (when active) and use the "License this product" option.
