Adobe just announced the launch and immediate availability of Captivate 9, a major desktop upgrade to the industry-leading eLearning and mLearning authoring software. In addition, the company is introducing a brand new LMS (Learning Management System) called Captivate Prime, which runs in the cloud and integrates directly with Captivate 9 and other authoring programs.

Adobe Captivate 9 Direct Download Links

Adobe Captivate is now available only as a native 64-bit application to achieve higher perfor­mance. UPDATE (June 2016) – Adobe has now added a 32-bit version for the Captivate 9.0.1 release. (If you’re unsure what architecture your Windows computer is, see this page.)

Captivate 9 – Windows 32-bit (1.4 GB):   File 1   File 2

Captivate 9 – Windows 64-bit (1.7 GB):   File 1   File 2

Captivate 9 – Downloadable Assets – Windows (1.4 GB):   File 1

Captivate 9 – NeoSpeech Text–to-Speech Voices – Windows (1.7 GB):   File 1

Captivate 9 – Mac (1.7 GB):   File 1

Captivate 9 – Downloadable Assets – Mac (1.4 GB):   File 1

Captivate 9 – NeoSpeech Text–to-Speech Voices – Mac (1.7 GB):   File 1

See the complete system requirements for Captivate 9 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.

    Hey TL, not sure if you ever resolved it, but I was able to chat online with Adobe support, and they provided an ftp link for downloading the 32-bit version of the voice files. I’m not sure if we’re allowed to post links here, so just let me know if you want me to email that link to you directly. Otherwise, you can get the link from Adobe directly as well.

    Thanks Earl, would the user name and password be that of the software license user’s?
