Installing MAPublisher 9.8 on Both Adobe Illustrator CC 2015 and CC 2015.3 Simultaneously (32-bit, Windows only)

During development, Adobe did not change the class identification (CLSID) key for Illustrator CC 2015.3 (32-bit) and therefore it remained the same as CC 2015 (32-bit). These CLSID keys are (usually) unique and MAPublisher uses them to detect which versions of Adobe Illustrator are installed on a machine. However, due to these two versions having identical CLSIDs, MAPublisher 9.8 will only detect one version of Adobe Illustrator if both CC 2015 and CC 2015.3 are installed on the same machine.

If you wish to install MAPublisher 9.8 to both Adobe Illustrator CC 2015 (32-bit) and CC 2015.3 (32-bit), you can follow these steps: *Note: this only applies if CC 2015.3 was installed after CC 2015.

  1. From the Start menu, search for “regedit” and press Enter to run the Registry Editor.
  2. In the registry tree, browse to the following registry location: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{13CB67F9-3301-4AC5-AFFD-33462BE3A495}\LocalServer32
