Creative Cloud 2013 Downloads: Adobe CC 2013 Direct Links / Trials

Download New Adobe CC Now! (Try or Buy)

UPDATE – Some of these still work to download the original CC 2013 installers, but Adobe has recently taken down many links… However, you can also now get the all-new Creative Cloud 2021 Direct Download Links!

The new Adobe “CC” release is now available for instant download worldwide and there are many important differences in this release compared to Creative Suite 6, including hundreds of new features added to the individual desktop applications…

Here we’ve put together a complete set of Adobe CC (2013) direct download links for all the new products (Windows and Mac OS), for instant access and the ability to use your own download manager or download assistant if you have any difficulty with what Adobe normally employs (AAM, ADA, Akamai DLM, CCD, ACC) and need to get the trials without it… These can also come in quite handy if you want offline CC installers to use, store, or back up with (i.e., copy to USB flash drive, burn to DVD or disc media, etc).

Get the New Creative Cloud 2021 Direct Download Links

Alternatively, you can also easily download these free trials by signing up for the free level of CC membership and using the Creative Cloud Desktop app to smoothly select and download any or all of these products, although here on this page no membership is required to access the trials. In other words, with these direct links you can try out any of the just-launched CC apps without the Creative Cloud.

Special: Legally download dozens of free Adobe books for a limited time!

Whether you’re considering just a single app subscription like Photoshop CC or getting the complete Creative Cloud, you can always use these free trials to install, run, and activate the new software on your system, without needing to reinstall. All of the CC tools will install and run together on the same computer(s) alongside any older Adobe versions like CS6, CS5, CS4, and CS3.  These CC trials run fully-functional for 30 7 free days (or possibly longer).

Adobe's Best Offer: Get Both Photoshop and Lightroom for Just .99 a Month (Regular Ongoing Price)

One big improvement when downloading the CC release is Adobe no longer has separate files with different language sets – all languages are now included in a single multi­lingual download, including English, Western European (French, German, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, …), Eastern European (Russian, Polish, Hungarian, Czech, …), Middle Eastern (Hebrew, Arabic), and Asian (Japanese, Korean, Chinese). So if you need to install additional languages, just run the same installer again and choose another language.

Below is a table with direct links for all of the CC trials. These links go to the authentic and original CC files residing on Adobe’s servers, are guaranteed genuine, safe, legal, and will not change. For Windows, some programs consist of two files, an .exe and a 7-Zip file (.7z). The .exe file will only work when the .7z file is also fully downloaded and resides in the same location. For the Mac, it’s always just a single .dmg file for each program.

**** On Mac OS v. 10.12 “Sierra” (only), you need to follow these additional steps to install.

[ What do these different applications do? Check out the Creative Cloud product page. ]

All of these trials are supported on Mac OS X or Windows (32-bit x86 and 64-bit x64), with the exception of Flash Pro CC, After Effects CC, Premiere Pro CC, Audition CC, Prelude CC, SpeedGrade CC, and Scout CC, which are 64-bit only. Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC, and InDesign CC include both 32-bit and native 64-bit versions within the same download above. For more details, see the complete set of system requirements for Creative Cloud, and make sure your machine meets the minimum specs for the product(s) you want.

Creative Cloud Is Growing Fast – How Many Millions of Paid Subscribers?

You do not need to uninstall any prior versions of Creative Suite or other creative applications; 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 have CS3, CS4, CS5, CS6, and CC all on one computer.

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.

If you have a slow or limited Internet connection and the sizes of these files are just too much to successfully download online, then you can request a Creative Cloud disc/DVD from Adobe instead.

*** Note: If you have any problems getting the files to download or install, be sure to read the earlier comments on this page – as most questions have already been asked and answered below!

Adobe CC Extra Content

Adobe did not update the (optional) Extra Content – also called “Functional Content” – for the CC release, and says you can continue to download and use the CS6 Extra Content if you like – read more about this here.

The free additional content consists of media assets, templates, tutorials, documentation, fonts, footage, and sample files – and is not required to run the main products, but will improve your experience if you have the time to download and add it to your installation. It is most used in the Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Encore applications – and is displayed in the Library panel, title template, and template projects.

Adobe CC 2013 Updates

If you also want the direct download links for the individual CC product updates/patches (i.e., all the included upgrades for each tool since the initial base CC release above), we have complete sets available:

  1. Quoted from ProDesign:

    “One big improvement when downloading the CC release is Adobe no longer has separate files with different language sets – all languages are now included in a single download, including English, Western European (French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, …), Eastern European (Russian, Polish, Hungarian, Czech, …), and Asian (Japanese, Korean, Chinese).”

    But there two languages missing, the world’s fourth most spoken language, Arabic, and also Hebrew.

    I believe Arabic may have a separate Middle Eastern version, as mentioned in a footnote over at InDesign CC’s webpage at, however I can’t find any info regarding CC at Adobe’s dedicated Middle-East North-Africa site at

    Since you’re well-informed regarding all things Adobe, I wondered if you could shed any light on this ?

    Many thanks ProDesign.

  2. I have a question. I have Edge Animate CS6. will I be able to get a free upgrade to the new Edge Animate CC? I have Creative Cloud but I don’t have the paid membership one.

  3. Access Denied
    You don’t have permission to access “…/AdobeProducts/PHSP/14/osx10/Photoshop_14_LS20.dmg” on this server.

    Reference #18.61b434d.1371728964.5ac040e

    Seems doesn’t work for me ;/…

    • Hey there Pony, are you carefully following the download instructions given in the article above, near the top of this page? That is essential for the direct links to work.

      Then if you’re still having any issues, try a different web browser, computer, or Internet connection… (avoid Wi-Fi as most are large files)


      Here’s a complete step-by-step list of some suggestions to try if you’re having any difficulties:

      1. Number one is to review the detailed instructions in the article above and make sure you’re following them carefully – hopefully you are.

      2. Adobe recommends you temporarily turn off any surfing restrictions you might have set up on your computer – like cookie or site blockers, hosts exclusions, firewalls or antivirus software (esp. Kaspersky), and third-party blocking or filtering utilities like Ghostery, AdBlock, or Disconnect. And to repeat, your browser must accept cookies!

      3. Try a different browser, or computer, or Internet connection, or location – each time going back to step #1. Use a wired connection if you can, rather than wireless or Wi-Fi which can be slower or unreliable. Rebooting your computer may also take care of the issue.

      4. Sometimes the status within your Adobe account can get crossed up. Try logging out of, clearing all Adobe cookies on your browser, clear the browser cache too (and/or use a different browser or machine), then restarting and logging in again with the instructions above. Worst case, repeat that but first create a brand new Adobe ID account for yourself.

      5. It may sound strange, but wait a while before trying the downloads again – then start again from the top. Believe it or not, sometimes simply waiting a day or two does the trick when nothing else seems to work – and comments from dozens of people have confirmed this.

      6. Consider installing a good download manager of your own, to help manage the large size of these files. You’ll find a recommended selection at CNET here. Or if you’re already using one and it doesn’t work, try it without.

      7. Note that for customers with slower Internet connections or who have problems downloading, Adobe has said they will provide a hardcopy of all these CC installers on DVD disc via mail by request, if you contact them and ask nicely. :)

      Bottom line: Sometimes Adobe’s download servers are a little temperamental even if you think you’ve got everything right. Also people have reported challenges because of the traffic demand for the CC trials, so waiting a little while could definitely help too.

      So if all else fails, just give it some time and come back to it tomorrow… Patience usually wins the game for some issues with Adobe’s servers – they often clear themselves up on their own, oddly enough. Then start again from the top. Good luck!

    • Well even for Acrobat XI Pro, it’s a multi-language installer (AcroPro.msi on Windows) – however, it supports slightly fewer languages than the newer CC apps…

      That direct link above offers English, Czech, Danish, German, Spanish, Finnish, French, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese/Brazil, Russian, Slovak, Slovenian, Swedish, Turkish, Chinese, Arabic, and Hebrew.

  4. ProDesignTools:
    In fact, the “English Arabic” and “English Hebrew” versions are both in there too – in the same CC download/file with all the other languages, for any given app above…

    Oh that’s really good to hear. I appreciate you researching that out. Many thanks.

    So I guess that footnote over at InDesign CC’s webpage, which I mentioned in my previous comment, which suggested a separate Middle Eastern version was available to cater for Arabic typographic controls is wrong, and probably the remnants from the InDesign CS6 webpage.

    One should never do copy-and-paste jobs without proofreading. ;)

    • Well, perhaps one could say that there is a separate ME language version, like there is a separate French version and German version… just that they’re all included in the Creative Cloud and the CC apps, and you can choose whichever one(s) you want.

    • Welcome Alster,

      For Adobe Muse CC – after you’ve downloaded the package above, look for the “muse_5-0_install_win.exe” installer file under the AdobeMuse5.0 directory, and just run that.

      For Edge Animate CC, we have not found a way yet to install it standalone – there is no separate setup executable file in any of the directories… Apparently it is meant to be installed only via the Creative Cloud Desktop App (Windows / Mac), which you can easily do if you like.

      Update (January 2014) – A clever reader figured out how to do this!

  5. Hello.
    Downloaded Muse (Mac) and installed.
    After launching it, just not responding.
    What can I do about it?
    Please help.

    • Not sure – are you getting any error messages or other indications of any kind? If so, what is the exact text it gives you? Usually googling that will give you the answer.

    • Yes Mika, they definitely are. Just see the paragraph right below the chart above for more information on 32-bit vs. 64-bit versions of the CC applications here.

  6. Hi there,

    I have downloaded Edge Animate CC, and with administrator rights I have extracted the “Edge_Animate_2_LS17.exe” file. Surprisingly, the extracted folder didn’t contain any setup.exe but two folders deploy (Containing “AdobeEdgeAnimate.install.xml”) and payloads (Containing Setup.xml).

    Now I don’t know how to install software using .xml file when there is no setup(whatever!).exe file.

    Please help me install Edge Animate CC.

    P.S. – I already have CS6 installed in my system including Adobe Application Manager.

    Thanks and Regards

    • Greetings, you are right – it seems there is no setup program in the Adobe Edge Animate CC package for Windows, and we are looking into if there is any way to install it standalone using these CC direct download links…

      In the meantime, Edge Animate CC can be installed using the new Creative Cloud Desktop App, which you can download first directly from the table above (it’s included in there). That may be the only way to do it.

      Update (January 2014) – A clever reader figured out how to do this standalone, without needing the CC Desktop manager.

      For all other Adobe CC apps above, there is no problem downloading, installing, and running them individually using the direct links we’ve posted.

  7. Thank-you for the download links, The only thing that I’m a little upset over that there is no master installer that I can get like for the CS6 Master Collection.

    While it is good that one can just download what they need, it would be nice if one can just download one large file and be done with it.

    But that’s just me though :)

    • Welcome back Daniel, thanks for your thoughts. It’s a good point – though even with the standard way of installing these products (via the CC Desktop App or Adobe Application Manager), there is no way to download more than one application at a time.

      Once Adobe moved from the older Suite model to the larger all-you-can-eat Creative Cloud model, they stopped setting distinct bundles of programs. It might be nice if they offered a way to “install all” with the Creative Cloud apps, but it would require quite a bit of disk space and download time.

      (Note that for people with slower Internet connections, Adobe has said they will provide a hardcopy of all these CC installers on DVD disc by request via mail, if you contact them and ask nicely. :)

  8. so are these free trials really also installers if we have a CC subscription?

    like if for some reason all goes to heck or a CC app gets deleted, can I reinstall from these downloads and run on my CC ‘account’ rather that it just being a trial.

    • Yes, definitely Scott – all of the direct download files linked here can be used as a offline backups to keep or use for your paid/online CC membership.

      In other words, they can be installed, converted, and activated as full working copies for any product or Cloud subscription, and not just free trials.

      If you do start them as free trials, then you can subscribe later and they will be fully activated without needing software reinstallation.

    • Hello Sai, here are the guidelines for getting it going:

      1. These files are large, download them using a fast and reliable connection only. Use wired rather than wireless if possible.

      2. Use a good browser like Chrome, Firefox, or your own download manager.

      3. Carefully follow the download instructions given in the article.

      4. On Windows, make sure both File 1 (.exe) and File 2 (.7z) are in the same place, if there are two files. If your two files don’t have those extensions, then rename them back.

      5. Make sure it’s a simple folder on your C: drive, not a long or complicated path.

      6. Run (double-click) the .exe file (or .dmg on Mac) to extract the contents.

      7. That will create a new Adobe folder, typically put on your Desktop.

      8. Go to that directory, where there should be a Setup.exe file.

      9. Just run the Set-up file there and that will install the software onto your system.

      10. If any problems, see this earlier list of download tips.

      Hope that helps!

  9. Can someone help me? I’m trying to get Flash Professional, but when I click the link, it says access denied. That goes with all the links.

  10. Hi, I can’t find installer file (setup.exe or .msi) inside the Edge Animate CC (Edge_Animate_2_LS17.exe) file. It just extract files and not installing. Inside the extracted folder there is only Microsoft VC and DirectX installers. The “payloads\AdobeEdgeAnimate” folder doesn’t have any .exe/.msi files. Then how to install Edge Animate CC?
