Manual installation of EDAP Tools

If for some reason the EDAP Tools Install Script does not work, users can always install manually.

This problem can occur after an Adobe Animate update that breaks the standard configuration naming conventions or due to some other irregularities with the user profile setup.

Manual installation consists of copying EDAP Tools files to their respective destinations in Flash / Animate Configuration folder.

The program (Flash / Animate) must be closed while you copy files.

Before you begin, open the Configuration folder


The fastest way to find your Configuration folder is to run our Open Config Folder command.

  1. Download Open Config Folder.jsfl and save it somewhere on your disk (for example the Desktop).
  2. Start Flash / Animate
  3. From the Commands menu choose Run Command…, browse for Open Config Folder.jsfl and click Open.
  4. Config folder is revealed: An Explorer / Finder window will pop up showing your Configuration folder.
  5. Quit Flash / Animate, but leave the Configuration folder window open.

Below are the necessary steps to manually install EDAP Tools


1. Make sure that Flash / Animate is closed. Navigate to your version's Configuration folder:
(The easiest way to find your Configuration folder is to use Open Config Folder.jsfl as described above.)

Win: C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Local\Adobe\Animate YourVersion\YourLocale\Configuration
Mac: HD\Users\YourUserName\Library\Application Support\Adobe\Animate YourVersion\YourLocale\Configuration

Reset the Configuration folder (optional)

If you have had previous failed attempts to install via the Install-Uninstall EDAPT script, it is probably a good idea to reset the Configuration, just to make sure that there are no residual files from previous failed installations.
This will erase any other commands and plugins that you may have installed. In Flash CS it will also erase any customized shortcuts. Make sure you back up all user-modified files before resetting your Config.

  1. To reset, select all files and folders inside Configuration and delete them.
    Do not close Explorer / Finder.
  2. Start Flash / Animate. It will re-create a clean Configuration.
  3. Close Flash / Animate.

2. Inside Configuration create a folder called EDAPT.6.5.0
EDAPT Folder

3. Copy files from Source_Files in the unzipped install folder of EDAP Tools to the corresponding subfolders in Animate's Configuration.

Double-check to make sure that you have not missed any file!

4. Animate only: Locate the folder where you need to copy the EDAPT Shortcuts.

Win: C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Animate\YourVersion\Shortcuts
Mac: HD\Users\YourUserName\Library\Preferences\Adobe\Animate\YourVersion\Shortcuts

Copy EDAPT CC shortcuts v6.xml from the install folder of EDAP Tools. It is located in ..\Source_Files\shortcuts\

Paste this shortcut file into Animate’s Shortcut folder.

5. Start Flash / Animate. When the program starts you should see the EDAP Tools Welcome message.
Commands are generated during the first run and should now populate the Commands menu.

Activate EDAPT Shortcuts from Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts… on Windows or Animate > Keyboard Shortcuts… on Mac.

Manually browse for the Configuration folder


If instead of using our handy Open Config Folder script you prefer to browse for it manually, below are some additional instructions:

It is very important to note that the Configuration folder is hidden by default and you need to show hidden files and folders from your OS settings.

The Configuration folder is always inside Users\AppData on Windows and always inside Library\Application Support on Mac OS.
There are folders with similar names and content in Program Files on Windows and Applications on Mac.
Do not ever touch these! 

Do not look for Configuration in any other location than the ones described below!

To show hidden files on Windows, in Explorer choose View and put a checkmark in front of Hidden items:
Show Hidden Items

To show Library on Mac, follow the instructions in this link:

Configuration folder location

Win: C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Local\Adobe\Animate YourVersion\YourLocale\Configuration
Mac: HD\Users\YourUserName\Library\Application Support\Adobe\Animate YourVersion\YourLocale\Configuration
