Adobe Connect 9.0 Add-in
Starting August 17 2012, Adobe Connect 8 hosted customers will begin to get upgraded to Adobe Connect 9. Customers will be notified about their exact upgrade date and time.
This update requires a new Adobe Connect Add-in (henceforth referred to as simply “Add-in”) for functionality specific to meeting hosts and presenters on Windows and Mac. You will be asked to install the new Add-in when:
You try to start/join a 9.0 meeting for the first time and
· Have an older version of the Connect 9 Add-in installed OR
· Have the Connect 8 Add-in installed but not the Connect 9 Add-in
You invoke screen sharing, application sharing, or share PowerPoint (PPTX format) files and
· Do not have the Connect 9 Add-in installed OR
· Do not have the latest version of the Connect 9 Add-in installed
The new Add-in is based on a later version of Flash Player (than the Adobe Connect 8 Add-in) and provides better performance. The new Add-in will also enable the developer community to create custom pods targeting Flash Player 10.
Since the new Add-in co-exists with the Adobe Connect 8 Add-in, it can be downloaded and installed in advance of the Adobe Connect 9 upgrade. The version of new Add-in is 188.8.131.52.
