|Flash files not working properly.
When Adobe Flash Player version 9 was first released, there was a bug that prevented the loading of text and images in templates that contained dynamic Flash media. Per the author, if you have the most current version of the Flash plug-in installed (18.104.22.168+), the Flash movies should load properly. Please note, if the movies are not loading properly you may need to manually uninstall (by following the instructions at http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/knowledgebase/index.cfm?id=tn_14157) and reinstall the Flash plug-in in order to have the most current version.
|CD||Two templates on CD not working properly - fixed

|About the EXE file
The EXE was designed to run on 32-bit computers, not 64-bit computers. If you are on a 64-bit computer, you can simply browse directly to the content on the CD.
