Here's what's odd: 1. I acquired the first download for TCS 5 on 2014.01.21, the day I subscribed and paid for the yearly plan. Insofar as I knew it was not a 'trial version."Although it's somewhat of a trial in the effectivity sense. 2. Two weeks ago, Adobe Application Manager announces an upgrade for Frame 12 along with one for Acrobat XI Pro & I install both at the same time. I go to Frame and it's SUBAR. [Shrunked Up Beyond All Repair.] 3. I de-install it, then I re-install the one from the first download. No more SUBAR. Hurray, I'm back in the saddle again (clippity clop, clippity clop). 4. The next day, on computer start-up, Adobe Application Manager say's "howdy" and I look at the Frame 12 patch = same number as before. Not heeding the words of Gary Cooper, I decide to try it one more time, thinking that Acrobat is upgraded and looking AOK, maybe it's an anomaly (no-see-um = biting insect, smaller than a bug). Same result as in 2., above. *What did Gary Cooper say, I know you're asking?* 1. "Ain't no horse that can't be rode." [Reference to Joan Crawford is impertinent.] 2. "Ain't no cowboy that can't be throw'd." [He loved and lost, it's been said.] 5. Once more I repeat the de-install re-install process. Another Hurray. 6. Later in the day, within Frame, I decided to check for updates, and there was one suggested; the version was the same as in Adobe Application Manager. For a change of pace, I try the in-Frame patch & once more I got on the horse and got off the horse with ready assistance from the horse. [How does this horse know Gary Cooper?] 7. Two days ago, having heard from two of Adobe's Frame Wizards about their interest in horses, I decided to de-install all of TCS 5, and re-install only Frame. Then I applied the patch & it failed, so I repeated the de-install re-install of Frame, then Acrobat; both worked; then the other parts; they look OK & I assume they work. 8. Yesterday, Adobe Application Manager say's hello and this time I see lots of patches for TCS 5 but none for Frame. I install the patches, check to see if they are sober = AOK, I reopen Frame, go to updates, and it tells me I am up to date. Yippee. I check the Frame version I am using and it is the same one which proceeded this merry go round. *Someone is trying to corral the horse.* 9. Today, in Frame, I recheck for updates and I am up to date as in #8. Frame update gives me it's blessing,* the Horse is not running in The Preakness!.*
Conclusions: 1. Frame's wiz kids will re-patch the patch, and it will reappear refined and sober-like. 2. If Adobe goes into the merry-go-round business, I'm gonna ride a Tiger or a Lion; I'm cautious about their horses. 3. Adobe's Suites should include Dramamine: download once, don't toss many! I know my response is too big for fortune cookies, but it's perfect for wastebaskets!
