  1. After downloading cs5.5 – clicked on the .exe file and it opened great. Wanted to extract to desktop which I say OK to, and next it simply says problem occurred when extracting, please try downloading again? Any help?

  2. Thanks. I realized after I posted the question the file 2 was only 369MB and it was to be over 2GB. Will keep working on it till the whole download comes.

  3. so is there anything offered OUTSIDE of the Adobe site, where sane people live and breath everyday, that can open my 7z files? I’ve kept the download manager open for the download, still get a prompt from windows.

    if you are going to answer with a link to some instructions, please don’t bother, I have 8 pages of adobe instructions open and no help whatsoever. I don’t understand the vehement reluctance to post anything clear, concise, and functional in a straightforward manner anywhere in the download section.

    • 7-Zip will open them, but you shouldn’t need that, or any external utility. You also don’t need any of Adobe’s download managers here.

      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 those aren’t the file extensions you have, then it may be that your web browser dropped them when downloading, which happens sometimes (especially with IE). If so, then you’d need to rename the file(s) to add back the extension(s).

  4. Hello, after you click the link (to adobe’s website found in the Very Important Instructions above the list of downloads) to set up the cookies, I needed to download the adobe download assistant program and install it. After that you sign in with your adobe id (in the download assistant for acrobat) and pause the download.

    Then go back to the prodesign site and download both files. Make sure the total file(s) downloads. (check this by seeing if the file sizes match what the site says) I had to try several times till the total 2+GB file downloaded.

    As far as I know their is no other place on the web to safely download older versions of adobe creative suites.

  5. I don’t understand why this information can’t be included in the text at the top of the page. I think it’s a shame that these haven’t been updated. However, thank you very much for that simple clarification. I had opened the .exe file while the other was downloading, and it went without a hitch so I thought I was done with that. I was able to re-run the exe file after both downloads were complete and the software loaded without further issue.

    I had been under the impression that the download assistant was what was necessary to extract the 7z files.

    Thank you again. @ProDesignTools

    • Sure, happy to help. We’ve been doing this for years and tried to be as clear as possible in the article text and the download instructions about what’s needed and what to watch out for, but invariably not everyone reads things the same way.

  6. when I click a link or use right-click then I just get a new tab with a different website. I did follow the instructions and log into the Adobe account.

  7. I downloaded both the files (Photoshop CS 5.1). It extracts nicely till 99% and gives me an error about not enough disk space.
    I have 29.6 GB free on the target partition (D:)
    Tried it on different drives with varying free space (all above 10 GB), same error.
    Tried moving the download to another computer. Same error.
    Tried downloading again. Same error
    Please advise.

  8. It worked when downloaded the third time, Looks like something was wrong with the 7z file on the first two attempts.
    No errors
    Thanks for the response and apologies for bothering.

  9. I purchased this product 4 years ago. Recently my computer crashed and I lost all of my programs including Creative Suite 5.5. I tried reinstalling from a previous backup, but that did not work. I cannot use the direct link in my email because it has been over 3 years. I do not know what I need to do to get my Creative Suite back. I have tried downloading each trial individually to put in my serial number, but it is taking hours for each trial to download. Any help would be appreciated.

    • Greetings Kristin, you would need to download the exact same product that you bought – in your case, a suite, rather than the individual tools… Then enter your valid purchased serial number to activate the software, when it asks.

  10. If you are getting download failed, network error in chrome and any other download error in firefox, it its likely your ISP. It didn’t work in my apartment (over wifi or ethernet), but when I went to work it worked fine over wifi.

  11. Hi, i have the adobe suites 5.5 design premium student and teachers licencing disk but my computer i had installed it on had crashed and my new computer does not have a CD drive (retina). I downloaded the creative cloud by accident, and tried to download the CS 5.5 but it says that my serial code was not applicable.

    • Hello Drew, looks like you’re on the right page for the CS5.5 direct links… Are you positive you downloaded the same software that you had?

      If so, and if you encounter any licensing issues, then we unfortunately don’t have much power to help with that – you’d have to contact Adobe directly.

  12. I am trying to download using my Mac Mini, Every time I try to go and do the download, it says:

    Access Denied
    You don’t have permission to access “…/AdobeProducts/STAM/CS5_5/osx10/MasterCollection_CS5_5_LS1.dmg” on this server.

    please help!

    • Hi Pukuri, guessing that your web browser may have dropped a file extension(s) when downloading… If there’s no longer an extension, then your computer wouldn’t know how to open/process the files.

      On Windows, make sure the first (small) file has a .exe extension and the second (large) file has a .7z extension. If not, then just rename the file(s) to add back the extension(s) at the end, and you should then be able to proceed from there.

  15. I have followed the download instructions and when I got to open the programme it tells me that its not a supported file type and that it has been damaged and not decoded? Any ideas why? Its CS5.5 on windows

  16. Hi PDT team,

    Awesome site and resource. I tried downloading a trial of Design Premium CS5.5 for MAC but the link says I don’t have permissions. I bought my license from an online store but its been a while and their link they sent me via email doesn’t work anymore. Do you guys still have this file available to download? I’ve got my own license.

    thanks.

  17. I have followed the download instructions for Adobe Illustrator on Windows (English) and when I go to open the program it tells me that its not a valid Win32 application. Have downloaded it multiple times. Something not right??

  18. Tried Illustrator CS5.1 1.3 GB dual files download English. When I go to run the application I get the error ‘Illustrator_15_1_LS1.exe is not a valid Win32 application’. Have tried multiple times to download without success.

    • Greetings David, at what point did you get that message? When you first double-click the downloaded File 1?

      On Windows, is your extension of File 1 “.EXE” and the extension of File 2 “.7Z”? If not, you would need to rename the files back so that they have those extensions.

      That message could also indicate a damaged download or unsuccessful installation. If so, you can use the Adobe Cleaner Tool, reboot your computer, and then try again.
