MDM Zinc is a cross-platform Rapid Application Development platform for building rich Internet applications using Adobe Flash, Adobe Flex, and C++, that can be deployed as a standalone desktop application.

Zinc allows a developer to build desktop applications in a combination of Flash and C++. Applications are compiled into native executable with an embedded Flash player for the presentation layer. Zinc is similar to Adobe AIR but does not require a runtime to be installed on the user's computer. In addition, Zinc applications are not sand boxed in the same way AIR applications are, giving the developer greater access to the underlying operating system if desired.

As of April 2015 the company's support forum has been offline for several months with a "driver error" and attempts to contact vendor have been unsuccessful, calling into question the status of this product.

In mid-April 2015 the following notice appeared on the company's web site:

"IMPORTANT NOTICE Please be advised that MDM Software is no longer supported as of 1st March 2015. Access to MyAccount will remain available to download legacy builds, but no further updates or builds will be made available. Technical, Sales and General support is no longer available."
