It may be desirable in rare cases to suppress the Adobe Connect Meeting application update pop-up on clients.

For version 12.x, as of the writing of this article, these is an additional step needed as a workaround pending a code change in an upcoming dot-release version.
On the Adobe Connect clients, delete the ConnectAppCache folder:

Note: The need to delete the ConnectAppCache when required is a workaround option that may be needed under certain circumstances until we can release an Adobe Connect updater that will address the root cause.
