Until now I've always been employed or contracted to the company I'm designing for, and so I have always used their Captivate Licence on their computers. I'm now starting to design in a freelance capacity and as such the Captivate Licence will be mine and it will be installed on my computer.
My question is - what do I do when the software that I'm designing for is on the client's computer, not mine? For various reasons it is not always possible to get the client's software installed on my computer. I would imagine this is a common issue, so what do other people do?
One way is to establish a Remote Desktop connection so you capture on your computer while "driving" the software from your computer via the remote connection. Note, however, that this will likely require additional work, as the software won't actually be running on your machine, so Captivate won't be able to detect dialogs and such. So you will need to add your own Text Captions and you may need to press the Print Screen key a bit more than normal to capture other screens.
Great - thanks Rick.
