1. I don't see an individual TCS updater package listed - IIRC if you update any component in the suite, it prompts the update all the other components. You can install just FM out of the suite if you like (you just have to turn off the installation of the other components). Your separate Acrobat Pro license was a bit of a waste since it's included in the suite already. Just make sure that you don't get the "headless" Distiller that comes with FM messing with your "full" version - the TCS installer has been known to get that messed up sometimes. 2. Don't think one exists. 3. IIRC it was only with FM2017 that they went to cumulative updates that allowed you to skip to the highest one. I'd play it safe and install each in turn.

Hello, Framers, First, my apologies. I did try to search both the Adobe site and the [framers] archives, but although plenty of similar questions, seemingly no definitive, likely-still-valid answers. So... I'm wanting to check on some FrameMaker files that I haven't used since I got a new Windows 10 machine (actually, a Parallels VM on my Mac, but I think that fact irrelevant). So now I'm trying to figure out which updates I need. And why do I need updates? The dreaded tiny fonts, unmanageable windows/docking, and the like. I already tried setting the program's shortcut properties to Override high DPI scaling behavior. Scaling performed by System, which helped enormously, but not sufficiently. I believe that I initially installed Tech Comm Suite Update 1, based on what's showing in FrameMaker's Help > About FrameMaker: version 22.214.171.1245. (I simply copied my install files from my old PC to my new PC, so I'm not positive which version. But I am pretty sure that the "1" in 126.96.36.1995 means Update 1, based on the convention apparent in the chart at https://supportdownloads.adobe.com/product.jsp?product=22&platform=W indows, where the third dot number seems to correspond to the updates. So here're the questions: 1. Is there a separate Tech Comm Suite Update package or is the correct update just the individual FrameMaker Update (https://supportdownloads.adobe.com/product.jsp?product=22&platform= Windows)? I actually don't care at the moment about any of the TCS components other than FrameMaker. I'm using a totally separately licensed Acrobat DC Pro, and I've never used RoboHelp, Captivate, etc. (I thought I would when I purchased TCS originally, but just never did.) I don't know if I'll want to use other TCS components sometime in the future, but it's not seeming all that likely (given my shift to static site generators and working for startups that don't want to tie themselves to an expensive authoring toolset). 2. If I need a Tech Comm Suite 2015 Update, where can I find that? (Yes, I could use the updater, but I far prefer to have the actual downloaded file where I know it is, and to do the install via RevoUninstallerPro.) 3. If I need the individual FrameMaker update instead, do I need to install updates 2, 3.1, 4, and 5, in turn, or can I just skip to Update 5? 4. Any other advice? Thanks, -Monique References 1. https://supportdownloads.adobe.com/product.jsp?product=22&platform=Windows 2. https://supportdownloads.adobe.com/product.jsp?product=22&platform=Windows _______________________________________________ This message is from the Framers mailing list Send messages to firstname.lastname@example.org Visit the list's homepage at http://www.frameusers.com Archives located at http://www.mail-archive.com/framers%40lists.frameusers.com/ Subscribe and unsubscribe at http://lists.frameusers.com/listinfo.cgi/framers-frameusers.com Send administrative questions to listad...@frameusers.com _______________________________________________ This message is from the Framers mailing list Send messages to email@example.com Visit the list's homepage at http://www.frameusers.com Archives located at http://www.mail-archive.com/framers%40lists.frameusers.com/ Subscribe and unsubscribe at http://lists.frameusers.com/listinfo.cgi/framers-frameusers.com Send administrative questions to listad...@frameusers.com
