Adobe Drive 3.0 and CS4 Version Cue

I have a scenario where we have installed Version Cue from our CS4 package on a lightly utalized server, so that this server may act as our "versioning" or "In Design Sharing" server.

I installed Version Cue CS4 to a windows 2003 server, configured it, and can attach with a CS4 machine using Adobe Drive.

I have been told that we need version 3.0 of Adobe Drive to work with our installation of Version cue, but any machine using CS5 and Adobe Drive 3.0 gets "not an XML resource" when attempting to connect.  Connections have been attempted with all iterations of the url, especially the url that works fine on the CS4 machines.

I've asked some folks at Adobe to see if they can explain what is going on.

Bad news!

This is what Laurel Zimmer told me from Adobe,

Adobe Drive 3 does not work with Version Cue. As of this recent release, the Version Cue CS4 Connector is no longer included with the Adobe Drive installer (which is what is needed to enable the connection). The connector is no longer included with the latest version of Adobe Drive b/c Adobe announced Version Cue end-of-life support with the release of Creative Suite 5 and is no longer supported.

I, of course, can't recommend going against your Adobe license agreement, but if someone in your situation were to get a hold of a copy of CS4 connector and install it, it seems that it should work.....

Excellent work.  Thanks for the quick response.  I rolled to v 2.1 and it worked fine, so for now, we will stick with this until we can migrate everyone to CS5.5.

I asked Laurel if Adobe was including a replacement for Version Cue in the current creative Suites.

No, we don’t include a replacement asset management tool as part of the Creative Suite. Available separately from Adobe is the Adobe Digital Enterprise Platform (ADEP), the technology foundation powering Adobe Customer Experience Solutions or the CQ5 Digital Asset Management platform (CQ5 DAM) both of which Adobe Drive 3 enables access to from Creative Suite 5.x products. Customers will need to identify an asset management system to work with going forward; either from Adobe or a number of outside vendors. Adobe has active partnerships with a number of digital asset management vendors; IBM FileNet, Alfresco, MS SharePoint, ADAM Software and others. Adobe will continue to provide the technology that asset management vendors can use to provide easy access to their systems through Adobe Drive. Overall, the decision to discontinue the Adobe Version Cue asset management tool is part of our continued strategy to provide integrated asset management experiences to Creative Suite users in a way that reflects the current digital asset management (DAM) marketplace.
