Note that Adobe’s eLearning Suite has not been upgraded with Captivate 7, and currently remains at version 6.1.

The direct links below go to the auth­entic and original files residing on Adobe’s servers, are guaranteed genuine and will not change. For Windows, each program consists of up to two files, an .exe and a 7-Zip file (.7z). The .exe file will only work when the .7z file is fully down­loaded and resides in the same location.

Adobe Captivate 7 Direct Download Links

Adobe Captivate comes in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions…  64-bit offers higher perfor­mance but choose the 32-bit flavor if you’re unsure what your Windows computer is.


Captivate 7 – Windows 32-bit (1.02 GB):   File 1   File 2

Captivate 7 – Windows 64-bit (949 MB):   File 1   File 2

Captivate 7 – Downloadable Assets – Windows (178 MB):   File 1

Captivate 7 – NeoSpeech Text–to-Speech Voices – Windows (1.20 GB):   32-bit or 64-bit


Captivate 7 – Mac (1.50 GB):   File 1

Captivate 7 – NeoSpeech Text–to-Speech Voices – Mac (1.20 GB):   Voices for Mac


See the complete system requirements for Captivate 7 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.
