About Extension Manager 1.7

Macromedia® Extension Manager 1.7 provides an easy and convenient way to install and delete extensions in Macromedia applications, and to find information about extensions you’ve installed.

What's New in Extension Manager 1.7

You no longer need to re-install extensions after installing the new versions of Dreamweaver, Flash, or Fireworks. The first time you launch Extension Manager 1.7, it searches for previously installed extensions and displays them. These extensions are disabled by default. You can enable any extension by clicking the On/Off checkbox.
