* Not recommended for Adobe Connect Hosts wishing to use screen sharing and making offline recordings as the Add-In required is incompatible with Google Chrome Default Settings. You can attend Adobe Connect Meetings without the Add-in. While Adobe works on a solution, use the workaround or use a different supported browser for your Adobe Connect Meetings if Add-in specific functionality is required. Further Information can be found via Adobe Connect Help.
