Thank you Rajashree for the response -
I had read the Adobe Akamai FAQ but there is a discrepancy in the information in the article and the list of software that the FAQ applies to. So I'm back to the same question. As a result of the error in the Adobe document I don't know what applications are effected.
Does CC or CS6 require Akamai Net Session?
The information in the Adobe/Akamai FAQ:
Some Adobe trial products use Akamai Download Manager, also called the Akamai NetSession Interface. Trial products that use Akamai include Acrobat X Pro, Adobe Captivate, and the Technical Communications Suite.
The following list are the applications that the document applies to, but it does not mention Acrobat X Pro or Adobe Captivate. So I assume that the list below is not a comprehensive/complete.
Adobe OnLocation CS
Adobe Premiere Elements
Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5
After Effects CS5.5
Creative Suite CS5.5
Flash Catalyst CS5.5
Flash Professional CS5.5
Technical Communication Suite
the answer is no.
