Hello. I work with a company that has been using Flash CS6 for its AS2 capabilities for supporting our legacy products. Our team currently has issues with Flash CS6 going back to trial mode recently after we were having no issues for so long. The same thing is also happening to Flash Builder. Is Adobe trying to also kill the development tools as well? Can somebody please shed some light on this? Thanks.

CS6 is obsolete, discontinued and unsupported software from 10 years ago.  Use at your own risk.

 

For best results, switch to Creative Cloud Animate (formerly called Flash Pro).

Nancy, how would anyone switch to Animate when they need AS2?

ActionScript 2 was superceded by ActionScript 3 in 2006.  This is 2022 😯.

Not to say that currently AS2 is more suitable to the web than AS3.

Even if you are not willing to support it. We are willing and able to pay for licensing. We just need access to the software. This will cripple our business if we cannot use the tools. We have had these tools for many years not sure why they reverted to trial mode.

This is a user-to-user forum, not Adobe. 

 

Creative Suite products are no longer available for purchase anywhere.  I urge you to migrate to modern technologies ASAP.  At some point, activation servers for CS6 will go offline at which point it will be impossible to reinstall the software.  It's already happened with CS2, CS3 and CS4 which are officially dead now.  What will you do then?

Good luck!

Adobe doesn't support Flash CS6 and Flash Builder. Flash is now Animate, and if you look at the provided tools, they support animation more than programming. I am just guessing but it's only a matter of time before the coding goes to only javascript. I mean they only have templates for old phones and other devices. Look how old the templates are in the screenshot... that version 22.0.7
