Sorry I wasn't clear in the first post. It is Adobe Connect Add-In version 11.9.974.205 and Adobe Connect version 9.2.2. The video of everyone else in the meeting works fine with or without the add-in. It is only after I try to share my camera that it crashes. In order to share my camera it forces me to have the add-in. Using the add-in works until I choose "Start My Webcam" at which point it crashes.
I supose it could be a Windows 10 issue, I'll test it on that OS and see if I can replicate the issue.
You shouldn't be forced to use the Add-in for video (though it will recommend that you use the add-in for better performance and quality).
I have another Windows 10 laptop and can confirm it works without issues on that pc. I just tried without the add-in and when I selected to share the webcam it went to a blank screen that said launcher=false.
EDIT: If possible I would still like to solve the original problem, but by uninstalling the add-in and using Microsoft Edge instead of Firefox I was able to get it to work.
I agree with the other person who replied that you should reinstall your Add-In but there are a few other tips I'd try, as well. Reboot your computer, close all other unnecessary apps. Within Connect, right click on screen and choose "Settings." Fourth icon from the left change cache to "Unlimited."
BTW easy to install add-in by going to Help menu and choosing Downloads. Good luck!
I'm having the exact same problem with a new Microsoft Surface Pro 4 tablet. Surface Pro 3 works fine.
Surface Pro 4 i5-6300U, 8GB ram
Intel HD Graphics 520 (10/27/2015, 220.127.116.1108)
I had the same problems with Windows 10 Pro and Enterprise 64 bit. I formatted the Pro version and installed Enterprise just to see if it made a difference. After OS install, I only ran updates from Microsoft, otherwise it was a totally clean machine.
I have two on premise servers, Adobe Connect 18.104.22.168 & Adobe Connect 9.5.0, both behave exactly the same. If you enter a meeting room with no plugin, you can click "Start My Webcam" and it works fine in either Connect version. As soon as you install the plugin, and click "Start My Webcam", the plugin dies.
Computer running Adobe Flash Player 22.214.171.124
Two plugins that are failing:
Adobe Connect Add-in 9.4 r96 126.96.36.199
Adobe Connect 9 Add-in version 11.9.974.231
Hope this helps,
I have the exact same thing happening on my new surface book. Ugh! I teach online and really wanted this to work on my surface book. Any help would be great!
I also have a lot of angry at Adobe Connect since I operate a Surface Pro 4. Earlier with the Surface Pro 3 (both under Windows 10) there were no problems.
I can start Adobe Connect but when I start the cam or sharing the screen then Adobe Connect crashes after 3 or 4 seconds.
As I also teach online I need an immediate help. Is someone from Adobe reading this forum?
Have you reinstalled the Add-In? Please try this first. Check your Flash Player to ensure you're on the latest version. The Add-In should fix the problem. Good luck!
BTW the Add-In can be installed in the Connect room – go to Help>Downloads and you'll land on a page with the download link.
Of course, I reinstalled the Addin more than once! I deinstalled the addin, reinstalled the latest (V 9) as well as the previous Version 8 one before starting Adobe Connect. I did the same, but startet first Adobe Connect and reinstalled the Addin on resquest of Adobe Connect. I startet Adobe Connect within three different Browsers. I tried everything!
I was having the same problem with the Surface Book. But the problem is broader than Adobe Connect. Basically, if Firefox is used with the latest Flash Player, it will crash the plugin with any application that requires Flash Player. I tried this with the entire range of webcam checks available on the Internet with the same result. I don't offer a fix, but I have found a clunky work-around. I disabled the three webcams on the Surface Book (front, rear, and IR) and plugged in a USB webcam by Logitech. Everything then works fine. So it looks like a driver issue with the webcams in the Surface Book and Adobe Flash... I now get to go to meetings with my sleek Surface Book, and then plug in my clunky USB webcam. I feel like a shmoe.
I was just told by tech support that neither the Surface Pro 4 nor the Surface Book is supported by Adobe Connect. Period. They would not go further in troubleshooting. This is a new development.
I just got a SP4 and need to have Connect working.
I don't understand how they can not support these MSFT products. The SP4 a dog enough. Now this!
Adobe: can you join the conversation and let us know what your plan is to fix?
This continues to be a dead end. No word from Adobe and, as I said, AC tech support flatly stated that the Surface Pro 4 and Book is not and will not be supported. No one could say why. Very frustrating.
I finally found a thread that had an solution for this and I hope it works for you too. Somehow Adobe Captivate is making Adobe Connect crash. The user I was helping with this issue had an Adobe suite of products installed and didn't need Captivate so I uninstalled only that application and rebooted the computer. Now the desktop Connect app is working without issues.
