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. hi prodesign team,

    i’m trying to download the offline installers for adobe cc here.

    i’m following any steps, but when i save a link it’s saving as a html file.

    can you send the installer via cloud for me please


    • Hi Deto, generally on Windows you need to download two files here for most of the CC products – a .EXE file and a .7Z file. For Mac, it’s only one – a .DMG file.

      All files are in the table above, and make sure to put them in the same folder on your computer. Both must download completely and in their entirety, so make sure you have a strong and fast Internet connection – wired is better and more reliable than wireless. These are large files so it’s possible you got an incomplete or corrupt download.

      It may also have been that your browser dropped the filename extension(s) for one of the files you downloaded – which can happen sometimes, especially if using Internet Explorer. So if an extension is missing or incorrect, then just rename the file to change it back.

      As mentioned in earlier comments, make sure you are carefully following the important download instructions given in the article above, near the top of this page… Those are essential for the CC direct links to work, otherwise Adobe will not grant access.

      If you continue to have difficulties, try a different web browser, computer, or Internet connection.

      Finally, check out our complete list of suggestions if you are really stuck.

  2. I am having the worst time with the Creative Cloud. The CC suite works on my Mac laptop but when I try to download it over and over and over and over again to the PC Dell I have –NOTHING!!!! I am getting tired of Adobe support people offering hopeless solutions. I need answers as a paying customer, or I won’t use CC subscriptions past renewal! I am highly frustrated. The CC App launches into a blank white, unpopulated screen. You can click download all you want at the download center, nothing happens. I’ve tried all the useless help options but nothing works. This is a hopeless scenario, and why I choose Mac over PC in a heartbeat.

  3. Hello and thank you for these great links!

    i have downloaded the CC trials a while ago. i want to stay updated when changes to apps occur. i know there is a CC updates page but am wondering something different.

    my question is do the trials change? example: is my trial of photoshop that i downloaded from here the same as the trial now downloadable from here? or are the trials changed in any way over time?

    my understanding is that the trials are now exactly what they were when first posted, and the only thing that changes is updates to them (other page). is that correct? if not which trials have changed? thank you!

    • Hey George, for most CC apps, the trial downloads stay the same, they don’t change. The way it typically works is the CC Desktop App downloads the base product release, and then applies the update(s) on top of it.

      But here on this page, you are downloading the base version direct – without using the Desktop App – and then can apply the updates manually:

      Direct Download Links for All Adobe CC Updates: Windows

      Direct Download Links for All Adobe CC Updates: Mac OS

      Or, you can still update any of your installed applications using the Adobe’s Desktop App per usual, if you prefer.

      The only apps that don’t work this way are Lightroom and the Edge tools (Edge Animate, Edge Reflow, Edge Code, and Edge Inspect), which are released in full versions only… and the most recent full versions of these programs are linked in the DDL chart above.

      Finally, here’s a list of all the new features added since the initial CC release last June and included in the updates:

      What’s New & Upgraded in Adobe CC Since Its Original June Launch?

      Hope this helps, and fully answers your question!

  4. Adobe would not send me discs. They told me T.S. I had to download it multiples since I have CC for Teams and we have some that can run the X64, download it again for the x86 version and download it again for the Mac.

    • Greetings Byron, in certain cases it is possible to get a Creative Cloud DVD from Adobe, but generally only if you don’t have a reliable Internet connection or the required bandwidth necessary to download the apps yourself the normal way.

      One nice thing about the CC direct download links here is you can easily do all that (download any or all apps) from a single page with just a bunch of clicks.

  5. so… why the hell do we need to download two different types of files and open them using some utility that we can only hope is awake when they are downloaded to open them? How hard is it to have a simple, straightforward download system that actually functions as intended?

    I have kept the retarded little “Adobe Download Assistant” open while downloading the 7z file about six times now. still won’t open. Windows keeps asking what I want to open it with… so wtf?

    • No, you don’t need 7-Zip or any external utility. And you definitely don’t need the Adobe Download Assistant (nor the CC Desktop App) – you can do everything here without it.

      It’s not too hard. On Windows, the .exe (File 1 here) will take care of the .7z (File 2 here) for you. Just download both files, and then run the .exe to extract the installer.

      If your downloaded files don’t have those extensions, or Windows is not sure how to open them, then it may be that your browser (especially IE) dropped those extensions… If so, then you’d need to rename the file(s) to add them back.

  6. can you get updated links to adobe scout and gaming sdk? i think the gaming sdk has been updated since and adobe scout says you have to download the latest version to run. thanks

    • Sure, done! Just updated the table of CC direct links above to the latest available versions of those tools:

      * Adobe Scout 1.1.3
      * Adobe Gaming SDK 1.3

      Thanks for the request and heads-up!

  7. I’ve tried several times following the download directions and even deleted all cookies, restarted the machine, everything I could think of. But any link I try I get the following in the address above and nothing ever happens:

    « link edited »

    I'm trying this method because the CREATIVE CLOUD hangs at 41% every time I click INSTALL. I can't get anything to work, this is crazy!

    • Well, that’s very odd. Have you tried a different browser or computer? Did you temporarily turn off your antivirus and any web filtering/blocking, as Adobe advises in the first step of the download instructions above? Are you doing this via Wi-Fi, or can you use a cabled Internet connection for better reliability?

      First thing, if you are unable to download then please try a different web browser. It is likely your browser’s installed plug-ins and/or security settings could make it impossible for you to complete the essential instructions.

  8. Hey, the acrobat pro link in step one is redirecting me to www

    This download link takes me to an above download manager and no log-in, so I can’t get a cookie session.

    Any thoughts?

  9. I cannot load via the CC Desktop App creativecloudsetup,exe (I have been through every website forum on issue and nothing works).

    I tried the direct download (flash builder 4.7) – I have logged into creative cloud first for trial, and when I click on the link I get this

    Access Denied
    You don’t have permission to access “…/AdobeProducts/FLBR/4_7/win32/FlashBuilder_4_7_LS10.exe” on this server.
    Reference #18.ccff4317.1402656516.7028d42

    I can’t right click and save target as either. just hangs.

    I have been trying to get this installed for 2 days now on my Dell Studio 1640. Windows 7 pro. Everything fully up to date. I have not problems wth any other software downloads (none adobe)

    Please can you help.

  10. I’m another whose CC hangs at 42%. Running OSX on 2012 Macbook Pro. Trying to install InDesign. Tried all the above multiple times and it doesn’t work. Adobe, the clock is ticking for you……

  11. It appears these links have been blocked by Adobe. I tried Firefox and Safari with clean caches and no cookies and all extensions disabled and followed the instructions exactly 3 times. No Luck. Has anyone been able to access them very recently?

    It appears Adobe is getting more aggressive about possible piracy.

    • Hi everyone, Adobe made a rare change on their site this morning that broke the download instructions and the direct links here, but happy to report that everything is now working again.

      Just reload this page (via Ctrl+R on Windows or Cmd+R on Mac), and then follow the download instructions again from the top – and you should have no further problem.

      (What happened we were using the Acrobat free trial in Step 1 to set Adobe’s session cookie on your browser, which enables you to access all the direct links here. However, they suddenly moved that trial page off of and on to instead, so it no longer activated the required cookie. To fix that, we changed the “click «HERE» first” page to be the Elements free trial instead, which still resides on

      Sorry about that, but a happy ending: rest assured that you can still use these DDL successfully!

  12. @Ben

    I got the same thing but it did give me a fresh adobe and acrobat cookie and let me download the Adobe Download Manager which is their older version of the Application Manager in Creative Cloud.

  13. Hey I’ve been trying to download after affects, but it says I don’t have permission for either of the links, please help

  14. What shall I do in this case?

    Access Denied
    You don’t have permission to access “…/AdobeProducts/IDSN/9/win32/InDesign_9_LS20.exe” on this server.
    Reference #18.8164c9d4.1402995524.3e54c32

  15. The new June 2014 update of the Adobe apps was released today and I have installed many of them. I notice now that I have both CC and CC 2014 versions of all of these apps on my machine. Do I need to keep the CC versions installed or can they be removed so that only the CC 2014 versions remain installed?

  16. hey guys,

    i’m looking for the new update for Photoshop CC that just came out. but i need the direkt link.

    can you help me?


    • Sure, a new post with all of the just-launched Adobe CC 2014 versions is given in our previous reply, in the comment just above yours.

      On this page remain the direct links for the original CC 2013 release.


  17. Hey, I’m trying to download the Adobe Illustrator CC 2014 free trial and it gets to 84% and says the installation failed…..every single time. How can I get it to complete the download???
