Top customer reviews
*UPDATE* - Adobe has now thrice refused my refund request even though I've submitted the exact info they've requested every time. Horrible customer support that lies to you to get you off of the phone. DO NOT BUY THIS UPGRADE unless you are 100% positive you have a full standalone copy of one of the required versions of Flash.
1) you cannot upgrade from a bundle, ie, Studio MX which includes Dreamweaver MX and Flash MX
2) you cannot upgrade from Flash 4 or version that is prior to MX
3) you cannot upgrade from a bootlegged or borrowed or otherwise non-registered version of MX. And you cannot register MX or older versions after the fact.
4) if you are able to install it on one computer, you will only be able to install it one more time on one more computer. AND you cannot use the application on those two computers at the same time, so they say.
5) if your computer craps out on you, you cannot reinstall it on your new computer, or your old computer once you get it fixed. And what happens if your computer craps out unexpectedly and you do not have the opportunity to de-activate and uninstall it? Well the Indians manning tech support don't have an answer for that. Their solution is to de-activate and uninstall it from the other computer it is on to reclaim your two activations.
Isn't this software a bit too pricey to be that stingy with licensing and usage? As a designer, I feel forced to pay and pay and play by whatever rules they make up for tomorrow, as they have the market cornered.
