Hi, I have a CC subscription and a 64bit win 10 PC. No issues there but I also have a secondary win 7 machine that I can now no longer login to my CC account on. I have a need to open some old AS1 and AS2 Flash files and was using Flash 6 on the win 7 machine to do this. Is there a way I can still login to CC on a win7 machine? Or can I download an old copy of Flash 6 somewhere? (I looked, hard, but couldn't find it).

 

Thanks

Did you install the MS Easy Fix referred to in that article?  I ask because that works for most Win7 users who cannot connect with Adobe's servers.  You also need a browser that has TLS 1.2 enabled.

Flash Pro was replaced by Animate CC which can output to HTML5 Canvas or WebGL both of which are natively supported by modern browsers.

Thanks. Yes well aware that the player is dead 🙂 That's why I want to open Flash 6 so I can make some projector files of old work. I transition to AE and JS/CSS awhile back now.

Hah! Sorted, back in. I had installed the Windows update but missed the 'Easy fix' link and so the registry hadn't updated as well so muchos thanks for pointing me at that 🙂
I was getting quite frustrated, so I was!
