Installation Tips

  • The trials are fully functional for 30 (or possibly 60) free days, so everything will work.
  • See what’s new in Adobe Acrobat XI vs. older versions by comparing all features.
  • Make sure your computer meets the minimum system requirements for AAXI Pro and the Reader.
  • For the smoothest 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).
  • 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 IE has been known to drop the extension (like “.exe”) from the Windows filename. If this happens and you can’t open a file, then just rename it to add back the extension. But generally, using Firefox or Chrome will work better – and if you have any issues getting the downloads to work with one browser, then try another.

*** 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!

    Do you have the direct download links for Adobe Acrobat DC, the newest version trial? (out today)

  2. Pat Willener

    The download for the Acrobat XI Standard installer (Windows) is named Acrobat X Standard. Please change that X to XI to avoid confusion.

  3. Rick

    I am running Acrobat Pro X on Windows 10 Operating System. Does not seem to work well like on Windows 7. Do you have any suggestions/upgrade?

  4. computron

    DO not like.
    What happened to the familiar interface?
    The new interface is so dumbed down.,
    How do you print a PDF to booklet?
    Are all the useful features now pay features?
    If that’s the case then I will find a 3rd party app and forget about Adobe.

  5. computron

    Also please bring back the menu bar. Menu bars make applications easy because they are familiar and standardized. At least give the option to show the menu bar. More options not less, please.

  6. The direct download for Adobe Acrobat XI Pro don’t appear to be working. I signed in first, then I get a webpage with this:

    Access Denied
    You don’t have permission to access “…/AdobeProducts/APRO/11/osx10/AcrobatPro_11_Web_WWMUI.dmg” on this server.
    Reference #18.85a04968.1446137537.111b8db9

    I need the previous version because of some 3rd party software compatibility. Anybody know why the link doesn’t work?

    • Yes Dan – all the links work fine, but it’s not enough to just be signed in… You also have to make sure to carefully follow the important download instructions given above (required by Adobe’s servers), before clicking on any of the direct links – otherwise they won’t work and you’ll get that exact message instead.

      Then, if you still have any issues, try with a different web browser or another computer, while still following those essential instructions.

  7. Thanks! The first time I clicked the “Click here first link”, signed in. This time I did the same, but clicked to actually download Photoshop Elements and the other links work now as well. Thanks for the help!
