Legacy Adobe AIR App

Some background

On 2 September 2014, the Adobe AIR-based version of TPE for Desktop was (forcibly) retired. Read more here.

After that date, all versions of the Adobe AIR-based app ceased to function. All users will need to switch to the new web app (see above).

We encourage you to export your saved locations and import them into the new web app

There are two legacy versions of the old Desktop program: version 1.1.1 and version 1.1.2. You can determine which version you have by looking top right of the program window. The version number is next to the little photographer.

There is no reason to upgrade from v1.1.1 to v1.1.2, you can export your saved locations to the new TPE web app from either version.

Legacy version 1.1.2

Since 2 September 2014, v1.1.2 still allows you to export your saved locations. However, other aspects of the app do not function; most notably maps are no longer viewable.

If you wish to uninstall v1.1.2 you need to run the installer and select Uninstall.

If you currently have an earlier version of TPE installed (v1.1.1), you will need to uninstall that version prior to installing v1.1.2. To complete the uninstall procedure for v 1.1.1, just re-run the original installer file and select Uninstall.

For the time being, if necessary, you can continue to download the Adobe AIR version of TPE here:

In order to install the later v1.1.2, you must first uninstall v1.1.1. Uninstalling does not delete your saved locations. However, before uninstalling this software, we recommend that you export your locations as a KML file and store this somewhere safe as a backup.
