  1. Hi, thanks so much for posting the direct links. There are two options given above for which way to go. If I start with the perpetual trial download, can I switch to the subscription download if I decide I want to go that route instead? Or vice versa. Thanks.

    • Hi Rachel, good question. Yes – if you change your mind, then you can simply uninstall one and download/install the other. In other words, you can switch to the other type later if you wish, if you decide to make a different purchasing choice.

      You can tell which flavor you have installed by selecting Help > About Adobe Acrobat Pro DC… from the top menu. It will say “2015 Release” and then either “Perpetual” or “Continuous.”

      With the Perpetual version, you’ll need to purchase a serial number after the free trial is up. With the Continuous update model, you’ll need to sign up for a subscription after the trial expires – either for Acrobat DC on its own, or included as part of the complete Creative Cloud.

      Note that changing the installers wouldn’t give you a longer trial period though… Whichever path you take, the longest you can go for free is:

  2. Does the language changing option in edit works? I tried it and picked choose at startup but it does not ask to pick language just uses same language that it already had selected.

    • Hey there Johny, this information comes from Adobe’s website:

      Multilingual User Interface (MUI) installers allow you to install any combination of supported languages. For example, you can install French, German, and Spanish simultaneously and then switch among those languages within the product. The user interface changes to the appropriate language automatically. With 11.0 [and DC], all Acrobat installers are MUI installers. MUI installer features include:

      •  – Support for more than one language so that users can switch languages.
      •  – Automatic selection of the language based on the language of the current OS.

      All the Acrobat DC trial installers posted above are MUI installers.

      It wasn’t entirely clear from your question, but if you’re instead looking for how to set the language of your edited PDF document, then see the answer here.

  3. Adobe was so nice to put the links for Adobe Reader DC on their FTP. This includes a wide range of localized instasllers as well as MUI, which is the recommended setup in multi-user environments:

    Adobe Reader DC:
    ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/AcrobatDC/1500720033/

    Adobe Reader Addons (spelling, fonts pack):
    ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/acrobat/win/AcrobatDC/misc/

    Nice links overview with links to all Adobe Reader versions from X to DC:

  4. Dear Sir,

    I downloaded a free trial of Acrobat pro DC, I like the program, and I would like to buy it, can you please provide me a link to buy the software and get the serial number?

    Best Regards,

    Faisal

  5. hi
    the Adobe Acrobat DC Pro/Standard (Standalone) for windows link above works fine but downloads a 644MB file. last time i was here it was 545MB.
    did something happen to the original? what changed to add 100 more MB?
    thanks

    • Not sure Bob, but apparently the sizes of all download files have changed since we first published this post last year. It’s possible that Adobe revised the downloads to reflect subsequent updates to the tools. In any event, we have changed the posted file sizes accordingly; thanks for the heads-up.

      Confirmed: Adobe did indeed update the installer files on their servers to incorporate the latest available updates to the tools.

  6. Can you install both classic (perpetual) and continuous versions of the Acrobat DC Pro at the same time on the same machine? Will one conflict the another? I want to try both because from their latest May updates, it looks like the continuous has more new features than the classic.

    Reply
    • Yes, the Acrobat DC Continuous (subscription) track definitely has significantly more new features & capabilities than the Classic (standalone) track – but no, you can’t have both installed on the same computer at the same time…

      The Adobe Acrobat DC free trial linked above is always the Pro subscription edition. When you sign up with an annual or monthly plan (see prices here), then the software converts for continuous use (with ongoing updates included). If you decide you want to go with the classic edition instead, then your installation changes over to perpetual (with functionality lost) when you purchase the license.

  7. Daer Sir,

    The given link is not working, and showing this notification…!

    • Actually all of the Acrobat DC direct links here work fine – but you have to make sure to follow the important download instructions carefully (these are required by Adobe’s servers!) before clicking on the links – otherwise they won’t work and you’ll get that exact message instead.

      If you have any further difficulties, then you might want to try with a different web browser or another computer – while still following those same directions.

    • It looks like that download directory has got Adobe Reader Addons (spelling, fonts pack), as well as a Setup Customization Wizard for Adobe Acrobat DC (Reader / Standard / Pro).

    • Thanks Ed. Those Reader links are the most recent full builds of the program that are available, from May 10, 2016.

      (Their version numbers may say “2015,” but they are the 2016 Releases of Reader.)

      After installation completes, additional updates (from early May to date) will be downloaded and applied by the software.

  8. The direct links actually give the old DC 2015 version with a couple of .msp update files packed into the same installer. Nothing new really. The main version is still v15, same as the 2015 version. So I don’t see anything new here.

    Reply
    • Yes, that surprised us as well – but at this time, for some reason, Adobe has decided to continue with the same (original) base installer of Acrobat DC and bundle in all the additional updates issued to date (of which there are many)…

      So the version number may say “2015,” but all together, it comes to the 2016 Release of Acrobat DC.

      In terms of what’s new, here’s what’s changed and improved:

      What’s the Difference Between Acrobat DC 2016 vs. 2015 vs. XI & X?

      Hope that helps clarify.

  9. Why do you, an apparently sanctioned partner of Adobe’s if not an affiliate, publish a 30-day trial of Acrobat DC when the Adobe reps claim there’s NEVER been any trial of Acrobat other than 7 days? This would seem to be the type of bait-and-switch that renders readers skeptical of further use of your site. Of course, the Adobe rep, once she uploaded the jpg, immediately cut off the chat …

    Reply
    • Hey Jack, the entire premise of this comment is wrong. No, there was no “bait-and-switch.” And it’s absolutely incorrect that there’s “never been any trial of Acrobat other than 7 days.” For many, many years, it was always 30 days.

      The article above was published a year ago, in May 2016. If you had googled “acrobat trial length” (like we just did), then this news comes up:

      Update on Adobe Acrobat DC Trial

      Adobe provides free trial periods for Acrobat DC in order to allow individuals to download, evaluate and try Acrobat DC before deciding to purchase. In order to ensure that trial lengths align more accurately with how trials are being used, we are making some adjustments to the program.

      Beginning August 9, 2016, the length of the trial period for Acrobat DC will be standardized worldwide to 7 days with the exception of the trial in Japan and Germany which will be 14 days. Individuals currently using the Acrobat DC trial will not be impacted.

      Learn more about Acrobat DC and sign up for a free trial.

      In other words, it appears that Adobe shortened the length of Acrobat trials last summer, months after this article was published… So we will add a note to this effect above.

  10. can I download free Adobe DC and view PDF files that are in rar and swf formats, or do I need to buy the same to view.

  11. hi,
    the link doesn’t work for Windows – Free Acrobat DC Pro trial in 26 languages (737 MB)… i get this message:

  12. Important: If you’re using Chrome and the links don’t work, then try with another web browser like Firefox, Edge, Opera or Safari. No problems at all downloading with any of those.

    The latest version of Chrome has an issue because our page is https, but Adobe’s download server is not – it’s http only, and there’s nothing we can do about that!

    So with a “mixed content download” here, all you have to do is use a different browser. It’s safe and easily taken care of.

  13. Google decided to stop supporting FTP servers. So even the new MS Edge does no longer support FTP. You will have to use another browser like Firefox.

  14. THANK YOU for this! I had inadvertently uninstalled my perpetual license of 2015 and was away from home with no ability to retrieve my install media. The trial version download and my license key (which I DID have with me!!) were sufficient to get me back up in minutes.

  15. Is it just me, or are the Acrobat 2015 links not usable anymore? I tried the download with a chromium-based browser and with firefox without success…
