Purchasing a ColdFusion Builder 2 + Flash Builder 4.5 Bundle

If you purchase either ColdFusion Builder 2 or Flash Builder 4.5 Premium as a standalone product (that is, not part of a Creative Suite 5.5 product bundle), you will get a license for both ColdFusion Builder 2 and Flash Builder 4.5 as follows:

  • ColdFusion Builder 2 includes a license for Flash Builder 4.5 Standard.
  • Flash Builder 4.5 Premium includes a license for ColdFusion Builder 2.

So these products then are actually mini-bundles, hence the title of this post. :)

Two important notes:

  • While Creative Suite 5.5 Web Premium and Creative Suite 5.5 Master Collection both include a license for Flash Builder 4.5 Premium, neither includes a license for ColdFusion Builder 2. However, if you purchase Creative Suite 5.5 Web Premium or Creative Suite 5.5 Master Collection, you can purchase an upgrade license for ColdFusion Builder 2 (that is, you're eligible for upgrade pricing for ColdFusion Builder 2; you don't have to buy the full version of ColdFusion Builder 2).
  • Flash Builder 4.5 Standard does not include a license for ColdFusion Builder 2 and as well as I am aware upgrade pricing is not available for ColdFusion Builder 2 (that is, you are not eligible for upgrade pricing for ColdFusion Builder 2; you do have to buy the full version of ColdFusion Builder 2).

Speaking of upgrade pricing, there is (of course!) upgrade pricing available for those looking to move to ColdFusion Builder 2 from ColdFusion Builder 1 (at the time it was released, it wasn't called ColdFusion Builder 1, it was merely called ColdFusion Builder, but now that ColdFusion Builder 2 has been released, we often refer to the first release of ColdFusion Builder as ColdFusion Builder 1). And there is also upgrade pricing available for those looking to move to Flash Builder 4.5 or one of the Creative Suite 5.5 bundles from earlier versions of those products.

So let's see if I can create a helpful little chart here:

Product ColdFusion Builder 2 License Flash Builder 4.5 License
ColdFusion Builder 2 Included Standard Included
Upgrade to Premium Available
Flash Builder 4.5 Standard NOT Included
No Upgrade Available*
Standard Included
Upgrade to Premium Available
Flash Builder 4.5 Premium Included Premium Included
Creative Suite 5.5 Web Premium NOT Included
Upgrade Available
Premium Included
Creative Suite 5.5 Master Collection NOT Included
Upgrade Available
Premium Included

* Note that while you cannot purchase an upgrade license for ColdFusion Builder 2 from Flash Builder 4.5 Standard, you will get ColdFusion Builder 2 if you upgrade Flash Builder 4.5 Standard to Flash Builder 4.5 Premium.

2011-06-06 UPDATE: There is no mention made of the type of license (that is, full or upgrade) required when buying Flash Builder 4.5 Premium or ColdFusion Builder 2 in order to get the "mini-bundle" benefit because that benefit applies to both the full and upgrade versions of Flash Builder 4.5 and ColdFusion Builder 2. That is to say, if you're upgrading to Flash Builder 4.5 Premium, you do in that case get a license for ColdFusion Builder 2 just as you do if you buy the full version of Flash Builder 4.5 Premium; if you're upgrading to ColdFusion Builder 2, you do in that case get a license for Flash Builder 4.5 Standard (I suppose the one exception to this may be if you're upgrading from Creative Suite 5.5 Master Collection or Creative Suite 5.5 Web Premium, since these already include Flash Builder 4.5 Premium), just as you do if you buy the full version of ColdFusion Builder 2.

Hugo's Gravatar What about if you previously bought Flash Builder 4 Premium (which included a license to ColdFusion Builder) and buy the upgrade to 4.5 will we get a Coldfusion Builder 2 License also with the upgrade?

John Blayter's Gravatar Thanks for the details on the upgrade with CS 5.5 Master Collection. I pulled the trigger this morning on a CF Builder 2 license because of your post!

Dennis's Gravatar @Hugo: Yes, when you upgrade FB4 to FB4.5 you get an upgrade license to CF Builder 2. It may not be obvious, but Adobe places the license key for CF Builder into your Licenses section of the "Your Account" portion of their site.
