Chapter 1. STEP 1: Installation and Setup > Macromedia Flash MX Components

Macromedia Flash MX Components

The installation process installs three new features in your Macromedia Flash MX authoring environment. If you don't have Flash MX installed or you are running Flash MX on Mac OS, you will have to manually set up these new components if you are using the Trial edition. Macromedia does not provide a downloadable installer to install the components in Mac OS. Each section that follows includes steps to install these components manually. The Flash Communication distribution CD contains a Windows and Mac OS installer to install the authoring components in Flash MX.

Macromedia Flash Communication UI Components

The Macromedia Flash Communication UI components are a collection of special prebuilt Flash movies you can use to quickly build communication applications (see Figure 1.1). When they are installed, the UI components can be found by accessing Window, Components (or pressing Ctrl+F7) in the Flash MX authoring environment. Macromedia may update these components and add additional components. After installation, visit the www.Macromedia.com/go/flashcom/ web site to download the updates. They are great for building applications and serve as a foundation for learning the technology. You will get very familiar with them in the steps to follow.
