    • Hi, are you carefully following the important download instructions in the article above? They are required by Adobe, and the direct links won’t work without following them.

      Then if there are any problems, try a different browser, another computer, or Internet connection (wired if possible, instead of Wi-Fi) – each time following those step-by-step directions.

      Also, make sure you’re not blocking or filtering anything with your browser(s) – like cookies, downloads, or any sites or URLs – or running utilities like Ghostery, AdBlock, or Disconnect. Adobe recommends turning those things off temporarily.

      Finally, if you’re really stuck, we also put together a list of download tips.

  2. Hey ProDesign!

    I’m trying to download these files however, I’m still getting the “access denied” page when clicking on the links. I’m positive that I’ve followed the directions accurately, I’ve triple checked. Has there recently been a change to Adobe’s site causing any issues?

    Thanks

  3. Hello!
    These instructions are great, and the files downloaded without a hitch. The only issue I am running into is the installing portion. When I click install I get the following message: ““Install” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should eject the disk image.” with the only option to cancel or eject the disk image. Any thoughts here? I have my code from the previous installation on my other computer, just can’t to a point to enter it and proceed. Any help would be appreciated. I am working on an iMac that was just purchased.

  4. Still working, easy! Thanks so much, I now have my paid-for, legit, licenced but somewhat aged CS5 on both my PowerMac in the office and my new MacBook Pro. Boom. awesome help, many thanks

  5. Hello!
    Everything worked well for me after a few glitches that the prior comments fixed but now when I enter the serial number it says the serial number is not valid for the product. I have the Adobe Creative Suite 5 Design Standard Student and Teacher Edition, originally registered on September 12, 2010 and the serial number is from the Registered Products section of my Adobe account. According to the packaging I had to submit verification that I was a student at that time, could that be why the serial number isn’t working now? I hope I’m not missing something silly but I’m out of ideas.

  6. In an effort to be helpful, my husband uninstalled Adobe Creative Suite 4 to save space on my hard drive. While I gave up on the DreamWeaver software there were a few other programs that I did enjoy using and one of them was Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro.

    While I did not use it often enough to warrant a monthly subscription fee, I would like to be able to use it without having to reinstall the entire CS4 Design Suite.

    Again, not adequate space on the Hard Drive for everything involved….any suggestions?

    • Greetings Robin, you can install any of the applications you want, or all of them… You just choose the ones you want (via checkboxes) at the time of installation, that’s all.

  7. I have been trying to download this after following instructions to the letter the download stops at 2gigs of the 7.2 gigs.
    I have a like issue as an above poster, with a paid-for production premium cs5, and a new pc without an optical drive.
    I have tried numerous times now to get this download to complete through Chrome.
    Any suggestions or ideas are appreciated.

    • Everything works fine on our end… Did you try using a different web browser or another computer? Did you try using a different Internet connection? (wired instead of wireless/Wi-Fi for best speed and reliability)

  8. I have downloaded CS5 Design Standard, which is the only version that I have an install key for. When I click on the red install folder to install the application, I get an error message that says “Install” is damaged and can’t be opened. I tried downloading it again, same result. Any ideas? Thanks!

    P.S. – I have followed all of the download/account sign in instructions that you have provided. Cs6 seems to work when I try that, I just don’t have the license key for it. I appreciate any help on getting Cs5 Design Standard install to work!

    • Hi Matt, what’s your operating system? Have you upgraded or changed that recently? If it’s a newer release of Windows or Mac OS, then CS5 would be unsupported.

      Another idea would be to uninstall the software, download/run the Adobe Cleaner Tool, then reboot your system and try the install again.

      Hope that helps.

  10. I have my serial number for the master collection but when I click on the link it says Access Denied and gives a reference number. Can anyone help?

    • Yes Lyndie, all of these old CS5 links still work, but you first need to carefully follow the important download instructions given in the article above… They are required by Adobe’s servers, otherwise you’ll get that exact message instead.

      Then if there are any problems, try a different browser, another computer, or Internet connection (wired if possible, instead of Wi-Fi) – each time following those step-by-step directions.

      If you’re really stuck, we also put together a list of download tips.

  11. looks like maybe the links are dead now… logging into Adobe and visiting the set cookies page, the download request returns the HTML file:

    Access Denied
    You don’t have permission to access “…/AdobeProducts/FWKS/11/osx10/Fireworks_11_LS1.dmg” on this server.

    The eject your disk image problem is happening to me too. I just bought a new MacBook and when I go to change the privacy settings to click the “allow from anywhere” option, there actually isn’t that option anymore. It has App Store and unidentified developers, but that still doesn’t work.

  13. @ProDesignTools I still can’t figure out how to bypass the the eject disk image pop-up. The link that you gave, was the same suggestions that I’d seen before about going to system preferences, going to security and privacy and then changing the allow apps downloaded from: to “anywhere.” I have the brand new MacBook Pro with the Sierra software, and when I go through all those steps, I don’t have the option to change to the “anywhere” option. Is there another way to bypass it? I’m trying to download the CS5 Design Premium, because that’s what I had a serial number for.

  15. This was insanely easy. THANK YOU so much! My new Windows 10 machine kept trying to install the 32-bit version from my disc instead of the 64-bit Photoshop CS4. Bookmarking your site right now!
