Here's the overall circumstance:
I have a new job with an employer that is using CS6 Master Collection. It is installed on my at work workstation as a trial. Inhouse support says a licence is on its way. I also have a CC licence personally.
Here's what I wanted to achieve:
- update Flash Builder 4.6 to 4.7 which is a free update under CS6
Here's what I did:
- I couldn't find the direct download for 4.7 so I signed into my CC account and downloaded and installed 4.7, assuming it would run under the CS6 trial
Here's what happened:
- Flash Builder wants to use the CC licence under which I downloaded it
- I have already used the two installs for the CC licence (I run a Mac as my personal development machine with Parallels/Windows and have a CC licence running on the Mac and my second CC install running on the Windows partition on the Mac)
- Flash Builder won't run unless I deactivate my other installs on my Mac
- other CS6 apps are running under the trial licence
Here's what I did to troubleshoot:
- uninstalled CS6
- uninstalled CC
- downloaded the AdobeCreativeClouldCleanerTool
- cleaned everything available under the tool
- everything was removed except for the 64 bit Flash Builder 4.7 install
- deleted the 4.7 install folder directly as there was no uninstaller available (Flash Builder was not listed under the Control Panels:Programs and Features)
- re-installed CS6, including Flash Builder 4.6 (I'd given up on having 4.7 until my CS6 licence is established)
- now Flash Builder 4.6 won't run at work unless I deactivate my CC licences on my personal Mac
- all the other re-installed CS6 apps run under the trial
To the questions:
1) Is there any way to get Flash Builder 4.6 working again under the trial?
2) Will Flash Builder 4.6 work under the CS6 licence once I have a serial number?
3) Is there anyway to update Flash Builder to 4.7 and have it work with the CS6 serial number?
