Macromedia has released an update for Freehand MX that fixes a long list of bugs and also introduces product activation. Be sure to read the overview and release notes; this version installs to a new directory, provides a new serial number, and Windows users will need to uninstall their old version of Freehand before installing the update. The update is available for download now for Macintosh OS X 10.2.6 and Windows 98 ME, Windows XP and Windows 2000.

You should update first into 11.0.1, if not the update from 11.0 into 11.0.2 won´t work.

After several attempts to obtain the updater for Freehand MX v. 11.0, I have finally succeeded. It took me quite a bit of time. Here are some tips to help other FH MX owners to update their software more quickly:

1) Go to the Freehand Updaters page on Adobe.com:

2) Contact them letting them know that you want an update, not an upgrade to Freehand.

3) In your request reference the URL of their Freehand Updaters page so that the person responding can understand exactly what you are requesting and that it is something that Adobe offers. It appears that many Adobe customer service reps are unfamiliar with the content of this page.

4) Include the serial number that you have for your original copy of Freehand MX or Studio MX.

In my case I phoned their call center each time. I did not try using and email form from their Contact page. Maybe it would have been quicker to use the email form.

What they provided by email was a link to a full version of FH MX v. 11.0.2 along with a new serial number for it. I then downloaded the installation file, installed it, and entered the new serial number the first time that I opened the new update of FH MX.

I hope that this helps.
