How do I get Bonjour for BrightAuthor?

Last Updated: October 11, 2017

Apple Bonjour Print Services for Windows allows BrightAuthor to automatically recognize networked players that have been configured for Local File Networking. Without Bonjour, you will have to manually locate the IP address of a player and enter it in BrightAuthor.

Once you have installed Bonjour on your PC, you will also need to enable it in BrightAuthor by navigating to Edit > Preferences > Networking and checking the Enable Bonjour box.

There are two ways to install Bonjour on your PC, depending on the version of BrightAuthor you are using:

BrightAuthor Versions 3.8.0.x and Later

BrightAuthor 3.8 requires Bonjour version 2.0.4 or later. To get this version of Bonjour, you will need to download and install the latest version of Apple AirPort Utility, at the time of this writing version 5.6.1 is the newest. Bonjour is installed automatically as part of each software package.
Apple no longer includes Bonjour with the iTunes installer.

BrightAuthor Versions 3.7.0.x and Earlier

We recommend using Bonjour version 2.0.2 for all BrightAuthor versions prior to 3.8. You can install this version of Bonjour using a standalone installer, available here.
