Description:

Part of both stand-alone Adobe CS5 products (such as Photoshop) and suites. "SwitchBoard makes it possible for AIR stand-alone applications to work with Creative Suite applications". Whilst testing, it would appear that this entry can be safely disabled as it will be loaded when required but if you experience problems try re-enabling it. There is also a Switchboard service using the same file which forwards messages between AIR and CS applications
