Direct Download Links for Adobe Acrobat X Pro, Reader, and Suite

Download Adobe Acrobat X

[UPDATE (October 2012) – These still work to download the Acrobat X trials. We also now have the new Acrobat XI Direct Download Links!]

Adobe Acrobat X has just been released! And continuing in our tradition of providing the direct download links for major Adobe software such as CC, CS6, Lightroom 5, and Elements 12, below you’ll find the direct links for the brand new Acrobat X (10)… We also have added the direct links for the previous versions Acrobat 9 and Acrobat 8 as well, in case you also need them for any reason.

The links given below go to the authentic and secure files residing on Adobe’s servers, are guaranteed genuine and will not change. They are especially useful when you are unable to download Adobe’s products via other means – often due to difficulties with the Akamai Down­load Manager (the Adobe DLM). Here it’s open and you can just use your browser, or another download manager of your choice.

The links are listed below. For Windows, the Acrobat X Pro download is in the form of a single .exe file, and for Mac OS it’s a single .dmg file. There is no actual trial version of Acrobat X Standard available for any platform, but Pro includes all Standard features – so you can try out Pro for free and then decide which version you want at the time of purchase. Languages offered here are English, French/Français and German/Deutsch.

The new Acrobat X Suite (Acrobat X Pro, Photoshop CS5, Captivate 5, Presenter 7, LiveCycle Designer ES2, and Media Encoder CS5) is also currently available for Windows only. The trial consists of two downloaded files: an .exe and a 7-Zip file (.7z). The .exe file will only work (and install) once the .7z file is fully downloaded and resides in the same folder.

Of course, the free Adobe Reader X for PDF is downloadable for both platforms – Windows (many flavors) and Mac OS (Intel). It’s a single .exe file for Windows and a .dmg file for Mac.

Installation Tips

New Adobe CC 2014 Direct Download Links: All Free Trials

  • See what’s new in Adobe Acrobat X vs. previous versions with a feature comparison.
  • For the easiest installation experience, exit any open programs, including virus protection software, prior to installing the product.
  • Install with an account that has administrative privileges (not a Limited User Account if you are using Windows Vista).
  • If you encounter any difficulties, try Adobe Assistance.

We suggest using a browser other than Internet Explorer to download the files above. They can be quite large and sometimes IE has difficulty with the download, occasionally dropping the file extension (like “.exe”). If this happens, then you’d just need to rename the file to add it back, or can drop the file extensions. Using Firefox or Chrome will work best.

*** Note: If you have any problems getting the files to download or install, be sure to read the earlier comments on this page – as most questions have already been asked and answered below!

    Ok, ProDesign :)

    Gotcha mate, there was a Cookie problem :)

    Cheers mate

    Just got us out of a jam! Could not re-install our previously-purchased Acrobat X until we found this article. Thanks a million for the direct download link!

  3. donna

    I followed the download instructions exactly, signed into my Adobe account as instructed, had to add the .exe extension to the downloaded file as mentioned in a previous comment, etc…. However, I still have a problem. There is only one install program for both the Standard and Pro editions….it apparently defaults to the Pro edition, but my registered license with Adobe is for the Standard edition, and no matter what I do, Adobe keeps rejecting my license/serial number as invalid, even though I copied it directly from the “MyAdobe” site and pasted it into the registration key field. Any suggestions?

    • Hi Donna, there is no Acrobat X Standard trial (only the Pro version, as listed here) – and from what we’ve heard, the Pro trial version doesn’t accept a Standard serial number

      If you have lost or misplaced your discs, or no longer have access to them or to your original Acrobat X download through your online Adobe ID account (if applicable), then regrettably we can’t help out there. Sorry about that!

      Update: After more digging, we did find a version of Acrobat X Standard and have included the direct links in the original article above. However it is not a free trial and does require a valid serial number to install and run.

    Whenever I try to open the link for Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard for a reinstallation, I get this message:

    Access Denied
    You don’t have permission to access “…/Applications/Acrobat/APRO/9/trials/AcroPro90_efg.exe” on this server.
    Reference #18.36b51160.1375110782.1ac3ede0

    • Hey Luis, it all does work fine – just make sure you carefully follow the download instructions given in the article above (near the top of this page), otherwise you will get that type of message.

      That should take care of it for you. But if still no luck for some reason, then clear your browser cache & cookies and try again – or try a different browser, computer, and/or Internet connection (avoid Wi-Fi).

  5. Ed

    Am I missing it, or are there no direct download links for Acrobat 9 Professional for Mac (Intel)? If they are elsewhere, I would appreciate a redirection.

    Thank you for this site. It has helped me much!

  6. Sonja

    Just wasted 500 MB on my hotspot to download Acrobat X Pro (full version) – it says in the official system requirements that it runs on VISTA Home, etc. So why do I get the error message “this version does not run on my system”? Did I waste my money too?? GREAT!!

  7. Ralf

    Dear Team,

    Thank you for this great site.

    The Adobe-Support gave me the link for Downloading Acrobat 10 Standard. They could not supply the Installer and my disk is broken. But the Download-File at your site can only install the Pro-Version. Do you have an installer or an ISO for the Acrobat 10 Standard Version, too?

    Thanks in advance.

    Ralf

    • Welcome Ralf, you’re welcome and really wish we could help, but unfortu­nately you cannot convert an Acrobat Pro free trial to permanent with a ‘Standard’ serial number… and there is no separate Acrobat Standard trial available… (just Pro that you see here)

      Please see this earlier comment for more details. Sorry!

      Update: We later located a version of Acrobat 10 Standard and have added it to the original post above. However it is not a free trial version; it does require a valid serial number to install or run.

    @ralf
    Can you please share the link for Acrobat X Standard Edition Link with us. :)
    Cheers n Regards

  9. Egor

    Thanks! It worked like a songbird!

  10. Patrick

    I have a serial number for Acrobat 9 Standard. The only download I see for Acrobat 9 is “Acrobat 9 Pro/Standard.” However, when I download this file, it only gives me the option to install Acrobat 9 Professional and the serial number I have for Acrobat 9 Standard does not work. Where do I go to download Acrobat 9 Standard?

    • Hi Patrick, the free trial link above will let you demo the features of both the Standard and Pro releases – however because it is technically a Pro version, the Standard serial numbers will not work to activate it (sorry)…

      We have looked but are unaware of the existence of any Acrobat 9 Standard trial download… If anybody does know if/where one exists, feel free to comment!

      Update: We did eventually find an old version of Acrobat 9 Standard and have included it in the original article above.

  11. george

    the acrobat 9 pro trial above is half the size of acrobat 9 pro from the cs5 collection. why is that? what is missing in this one? aren’t they both version 9?

    so then which version of 9 pro does the cs5 master collection have? this one or that one?

    thanks!

    • Hey George, that’s a good question. It’s the standalone version of Acrobat on this page, and the suite version on the other…

      So the CS5 Master Collection would have the Acrobat 9 Pro version linked on the CS5 page, and a newer Master Collection would have the Acrobat X Pro version linked on the CS5.5 or CS6 pages. The Creative Cloud has the latest release, Acrobat XI Pro.

      Otherwise, for an individual (non-suite and non-cloud, aka point product) release of Acrobat, you’d use the direct download links here (above), or on the Acrobat XI page.

  12. den

    tell me where I can download the installer for Russian acrobat standard 10? and then I rearranged and distributive system where it was lost and now I can not find anywhere installer

  13. Amanda Noorani

    I have adobe acrobat x pro and i need to download it on a new device. How do I do this? Every website wants me to download the trial. I do not need the trial, I need to know how to input my product code. Please help.

    Thanks,
    Amanda

  14. I recently uninstalled Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard and went to MyAdobe account to download and reinstall. Although I have my serial number, there are no links to install A9 Standard.

    I found your website and I downloaded Acrobat 9 Standard, but I keep getting an error message that the serial number is invalid.

    Before this happened because Adobe has a link to Standard but it is actually Pro. This does not appear to be the case with the download from your site.

    Any help very much appreciated.

    • Greetings David, it is definitely Acrobat 9 Standard that we have direct linked above (the English, French, German edition) – which is not a trial and does require a valid purchased serial number to install/run…

      However, if the download is successful but you’re having issues with your serial number, then unfortunately we have no power or control over licensing issues – you’d have to contact Adobe directly about that.

      Sorry we could not help more!
