When you launch a Creative Suite 5 application, the application unexpectedly quits with an error report that is similar to the following: (in the windows error box click on the show error link)

AppName: [application].exe AppVer: [app version] ModName: updaternotifications.dll ModVer: Offset: 0006a8dc


Too me all day to find this (including completely removing all adobe products from my PC!!)

Not sure about the legality, but for students (and you) to use youTube videos (offline) in presentations (especially if your organisation has a firewall that blocks YouTube) you can try which will allow them to download the videos.

WebAnywhere is a web-based screen reader for the web. It requires no special software to be installed on the client machine.
