    We are experiencing the same issue as other users. Our system has been crashing during meetings the past couple of weeks.

    Does the bad add-in need to be un-installed prior to installing the older version? If so, can you post a link to a page with instructions? Also, is there any more info on this crash? What OS is affected? All of them?

      Hi James,

      No need to uninstall the current add-in if you are going to use the Add-in installer from this link: It will overwrite the currently installed version.

      We have seen this issue affected all supported versions of Windows Operating Systems.

    How do you know what version of the add-in you are running? I have never upgraded or installed the add-in.

      Hi Cindy,

      When you are in a Connect Meeting with the Add-in, you can click on the HELP menu (top right of room) and then click ‘About Adobe Connect’. A new pop-up box will open and at the top, you will see the version of the Adobe Connect Add-in that you have installed.
