Hi Sandie,

Camtasia Studio 7's PowerPoint add-in is compatible with the 32-bit version of PowerPoint 2010. It's a bit confusing... it's fairly common to be running on Windows 7 64-bit but using the 32-bit version of Office. You can check that here in PowerPoint: http://screencast.com/t/tIuNxA0Ral4J

We can't comment on what's in Camtasia Studio 8 just yet, but more info will be coming soon.

Hope this helps.

Yes, it is not only confusing but it is frustrating as well since I am not a computer expert and do not understand the differences. The fear of making a mistake is high especially when I am working in a nonprofit environment as a volunteer. We recently purchased a new laptop and put Camtasia 7 on it only to find out that Camtasia 8 will be coming out in the future. I would like to get Office on the computer so that I can train other people how to record a PowerPoint and produce in Camtasia. So from your reply above it appears that if I put PowerPoint 2010 on the computer using the 32 bit version of Office, Camtasia Sudio 7 should work now. And then when Camtasia 8 comes out I can make sure that the add in works before I upgrade. I guess it would be foolish for Camtasia not to work with PowerPoint 2010 in a similar fashion to what it apparently already does.

I apologize for your frustration. Yes, the add-in in 7 and 8 are compatible with the 32-bit version of PowerPoint 2010. And if you've purchased CS 7 within 30 days of when CS 8 is released, it will be a free upgrade; your CS 7 license key will work in CS 8.

This answers my question. Thanks. Now, I am wondering if I will be within the 30 days when it is launched since I am already about 25 days since purchase of Camtasia 8. Sandie

Hey Kevin
I just bought Camtasia 8 so hopefully you can comment now. Is it compatible with Powerpoint 2010 64 bit? It doesn't look like it to me.

Warwick I do not believe it is compatible with the 64-Bit version of PowerPoint 2010 and I do not know if this is something they are working on or not. I used the 64_Bit version of PowerPoint 2010 and it did not work to well so I just used the 32-Bit version and all is well. It would be nice to see this integrated into the Add-In though. Kevin if I am incorrect please feel free to correct me.

Fred is correct, we don't yet support the 64-bit version of PowerPoint 2010, just the 32-bit version of 2010 or 2007.

Could you please comment:
1) When will the CS8 plugin support 64-bit PowerPoint 2010? +1 to this request. :)
2) Until then, how do I use the 32-bit version of PowerPoint 2010? Do I have to install a whole other version, or is there a "launch in 32-bit mode" option?
Thank you!

1) I can't say at this point when we will have a 64-bit version of the plug-in, but it is fairly high on our to-do list.
2) Unfortunately, yes I think there are separate installers for the 32 and 64 bit versions.

Kevin, Are you saying the add-in for 8 works with Powerpoint 2007?
I upgraded to 8 and the error I get in the COM add-in is "Not loaded. A runtime error occurred during the loading of the COM Add-in?"

Recording PowerPoint, any version, is simple . Set up the slide show to run in a window, in other words, not full screen. Size the window to your needs - and start recording the window. I've never felt the need to use the PowerPoint addin or am I missing something.

Yes, the add-in should work with the 32-bit version of either 2007 or 2010.

Hi everyone!

Today we are pleased to announce the release of Camtasia Studio 8.1 which adds these new features you might find helpful. In particular this release will work with the 64-bit PowerPoint! So it will be compatible with Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 (for example) both 32-bit and 64-bit!

Have a great day!
