This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Camtasia 8.0 Powerpoint Addon for 64 bit still doesnt work?

Hi !

I have seen that in Office 2010 64 bits, the addin/plugin of Camtasia Relay/Studio isn't available.

However, because the article have near 2 years old and the multiplacation of 64 bits software, i just want to know if the addin is suppose to be available, or it's clear that the addin for both programs will never work on Office 2010 64 bits. I've check here too and the last message from someone working for Techsmith have 8 months old and since nothing.

So can somebody tell me if something is going to happen in that case soon ?

Thanks !

Sorry, both the Camtasia Relay and Camtasia Studio add-ins are currently only available as 32-bit, which means they are not compatible with 64-bit PowerPoint at this time.

You can still use the Relay recorder or the Camtasia recorder, both of which will record 64-bit PowerPoint just fine. When recording in this way, you will not get markers automatically added at the slide transitions. These would have to be added manually in the Editor. But you will be able to record the presentation just as it appears on screen.

Alternatively, you can install 32-bit PowerPoint, even on 64-bit Windows, and both add-ins should work in that case.

Hope this helps.

Sorry, no. Except on rare occasions, we do not talk about future plans on these public forums. The best I can do for now is to acknowledge your feature request. Thanks for the feedback.

We recently made the switch to 64-bit Office when we switched to Windows 7. Our upgrade from XP was so late, it never occurred to us that a vendor still wouldn't support 64-bit Office. Are there plans to fix this or is 64-bit support not a priority?

Given the number of systems with 64bit Windows installed are only growing, it is hard to believe this issue has so little priority.

All sales literature associated with this software heavily stresses Powerpoint integration. And the truth is that a large percentage of Powerpoint users can not use the add-in. It is incompatible.

But you don't seem to be inclined to do anything.

I downloaded Camtasia 8 this morning, to evaluate the product in conjunction with PowerPoint 2010. I was aware that C7 would not work with PPT 64 bit, but was astonished and annoyed to find that C8 wouldn't, either.

This has been going on for two years now. Needless to say, Camtasia failed the evaluation.

FYI, I echo and agree with the comments made by Alan (a month ago) and Walt (11 days ago). I note with interest that neither person got a response..

Well, i was thinking Camtasia 8 will have this option by the time.. It's disapointing to see that even Camtasia 8 can't be on Office 64 bits. I'm thinking maybe that will never work...

I'm going to change this thread from a question to an idea so we can track this as a feature request.

Hopefully, this extended topic is being resolved. We had not idea that Camtasia would not integrate with the 64-bit version of powerpoint and due to computational requirements locally cannot go back to 32-bit.

Yes, please. We have no control over which version of Office we are given, be it x86 or x64. After two years of an x64 Office version, there really should be a compatible plugin.

I also am using the 64 bit version of Powerpoint 2012 and am very dishearten to discover it that Camtasia Add-In does not work in it.
