    Is a Creative Cloud subscription required to use Flash Builder 4.7 Premium?

    daveomatic Level 1

      Hi,

      I have FB 4.7 Premium (purchased an upgrade) and a Creative Cloud subscription. I don't need CC now, will I still be able to use FB after I cancel? I have looked all over Adobe sites and not found a clear answer to this....

      Thanks,

      Dave

          Hey I spent quite a bit of time sorting this out so I can answer my own question, maybe will help someone else in the same situation.

           

          Short answer is yes you can.

           

          But if you installed FB 4.7 as part of Creative Cloud then want to cancel CC and use standalone FB 4.7 keep reading...

           

          Bought Creative Suite 5.5 and got FB 4.5

          Upgraded for free to FB 4.6

          Started Creative Cloud and installed FB 4.7 using that.

          Decided that I don't want Creative Cloud subscription, just FB 4.7.

          Bought an upgrade to FB 4.7 Premium as a standalone app.

           

          But.... no installer for FB 4.7 Premium from my account downloads page. Adobe assumes you get it from CC

          Found a download, installed that and it would not accept either FB 4.7 upgrade serial  number or CS 5.5 serial number.

           

          Solution

          Call Adobe Support, they will walk you through installing the stand alone version w/o CC and give you a temp key to complete the installation. That only took a few hours on the phone!

           

          Downside is you must call every time you install FB 4.7, not good.

           

          It would be really great if Adobe would put this information in a FAQ.
