Adobe Captivate 2017 (Version 10) Direct Download Links

Currently Captivate 2017 is only available as a native 64-bit application to achieve higher perfor­mance… Adobe says that both Windows 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems are supported, and the 32-bit installer will be available on May 4, 2017. (If you’re unsure what architecture your Windows computer is, see this page.)


Captivate 2017 – Windows 64-bit (1.9 GB):   File 1   File 2

Captivate 2017 – Downloadable Assets – Windows (1.4 GB):   File 1

Captivate 2017 – NeoSpeech Text–to-Speech Voices – Windows (1.7 GB):   File 1


Captivate 2017 – Mac (2.5 GB):   File 1

Captivate 2017 – Downloadable Assets – Mac (1.4 GB):   File 1

Captivate 2017 – NeoSpeech Text–to-Speech Voices – Mac (1.7 GB):   File 1


See the complete system requirements for Captivate 2017 to make sure your computer is ready before proceeding with installation.

You do not need to uninstall previous versions of Captivate; some users prefer to keep the older, familiar version(s) around as they come up to speed with the new product’s features, and some folks even have five different versions of Cp installed all on the same computer.

You can easily convert a free 30-day trial installed on your computer to an unrestricted version by purchasing the software and entering the serial number.

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.

    Captivate 2017 – Windows 64-bit (1.9 GB): File 1 – Installation error message – “The file archive part of Adobe Captivate 2017 (64 bit) is missing. You need all parts in the same folder to extract……”. What other parts/files are required and where can I access these?

  2. Dee

    It’s OK, I worked it out!

    • Yes, on Windows you need both File 1 and File 2 downloaded onto your computer, in the same folder. Then just double-click/run the File 1 (.exe) to install Adobe Captivate 10.

      Glad to hear you got it sorted!
