Direct Download Links for All Creative Cloud 2014 Updates: Windows
[UPDATE (July 2015) – These still work to download updates for last year’s CC 2014 release… However we also now have direct links for the new CC 2015 product updates.]
Important! On this page you’ll find all the updates to CC 2014 (on Windows), since its initial launch in June 2014. If you need to install the full products themselves, then please see our CC 2014 download links first.
One of the main benefits of the Adobe CC 2014 release is receiving an ongoing stream of product updates at no extra cost… No longer do we have to wait 1-2 years for our tools to innovate and keep pace with evolving technologies; instead we get the latest and greatest features and enhancements as soon as they are ready.
Normally these upgrades happen smoothly and automatically for customers via the Creative Cloud Desktop app or Adobe Application Manager. But as with any software, there occasionally can be exceptions. Sometimes the new updates don’t show up or install with the CC desktop or manager apps, hindering the upgrade. Other times, you may have the need to rebuild, restore, or rollback to a specific earlier CC version for various reasons. To solve this, you want version control.

With older releases like CS6, Adobe used to post the individual update patches online for direct download and use when needed, but they stopped doing that for most CC apps. But we keep getting reader requests for these, so now – for all the CC 2014 tools – we’re providing them here.
Starting today, you can use the table below for a complete list of all CC 2014 updates for all major products for Windows… [See here for Mac] These download links go to the authentic and original CC 2014 update installers residing on Adobe’s servers, are guaranteed genuine, safe, legal, and will not change. In most cases there are no special instructions needed to access these files: just click and go.
Special: Legally download dozens of free Adobe books for a limited time!
These are delivered either as complete installs or as patches that are applied manually on top of the base CC 2014.0 release by unzipping the update file given below, and then running the “Adobe Patch Installer” executable. Make sure the base application was run at least one time (started up, signed in and activated) before applying the patch update. All patches are cumulative, meaning you only need the most recent one if you want to update your software to the latest version.
They are multilingual packages and each one includes all supported languages available. All of them are universal 32/64-bit installers, except for Photoshop and Illustrator which have separate versions for 32-bit vs. 64-bit.
We have them all here in one place, so you may want to bookmark this page – because if you ever have any issues updating any of your CC 2014 programs, here’s your workaround solution!
If you don’t already have the necessary base release installed for any CC 2014 app, then you can just direct download the free trials here… Those offline product installers plus these update patches make a complete set for backup – and if you like, you can burn them to disc or copy them to a flash drive, and keep just in case.
Also included in the table below are release notes with everything that’s new and changed in each update. For what’s new in CC 2014 generally, see this feature comparison.
We will be keeping this download list current with all new CC 2014 updates going forward… Please let us know in the comments below if there’s anything you need that you don’t see here!
Adobe CC 2014 Product Updates/Downloads for Windows
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 “.zip”) 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.
