What a lovely morning it is and you know what makes a morning even better? coffee and you know what else? a croissant. But after your coffee and croissant, that’s right a new product release! Fresh on the heals of the awesome 2014 product announcements + Ink and slide. We have also gone and released a new version of Creative Cloud Packager.
Features of this version include
The ability for Enterprise and Education Device License customers to create a license file.
Enterprise folks will remember this from the AAMEE days but it is also now possible to use CCP to create a license file. This is useful for enterprise customers if they wish to go from trial to serialised deployment or they wish to change from one license key to another.
For Education Device License customers this is especially important if you are trying to migrate from one license type to another for example going from a Team Named license to Device license.
We have also added a nifty feature whereby when you create a license file we also produce a Un-License file that can be used to remove the Creative Cloud License from an existing machine.
The ability to create a package with just the Creative Cloud for desktop app
In the past it was not possible to create a package with just the Creative Cloud for Desktop app. This made things a little difficult if you wanted to deploy an update to the app across your environment. You can now create a CCP package containing just the desktop App.
InDesign CC 2014 & InCopy CC 2014 (32 Bit Windows) Issue
With the release of InDesign & InCopy CC 2014 we noticed an issue whereby when you select a 32 bit package in CCP an error is encountered during the build process. This is due to the maximum file path being exceeded during extraction. We are working on a long term fix however in the interim we have documented the required workaround here.
Adobe Muse CC 2014
On Mac, Muse CC 2014 is bundled in the main payload and it no longer requires an Adobe ID upon launch.
On Windows, Muse CC 2014 is still treated as an exception furthermore there is some nuances to how it is deployed. More information can be found here
Again we are working with the relevant teams to try and improve the process and make it as painless as possible to deploy.
