  1. Oh man I was looking for those on the Internet; Adobe doesn’t continue to host the older (2010) trials on their websites. Thank you veeeeery much. May you have a nice life

  2. I’ve got the PS and Dreamweaver trials, but I get “access denied” every time I try and download Flash. Any tips?

    Reply
    • Sorry mcgg, the Flash links continue to work fine on this end, so no real explanation except to say that occasionally that happens for some folks with these downloads – and the best approach (believe it or not) is just to try again later!

      Give it a bit of time, then carefully follow the instructions above again – and also check out these download tips if you continue to have difficulty.

  3. Thanks PRO DESIGN – I searched the whole web for a direct download link, because my other PC doesn’t have an Internet connection, and I couldn’t find anything like your site which gave me a choice to download any Adobe software trial.

    THNX again

  4. I’ve been trying to install the Design suite but every time it is telling me there is an error with the archive. What am I missing?

    • Bonjour Tibo, please carefully follow the instructions in the article, plus follow the step-by-step list in the comment just above yours…

      If you still have a problem, please post the exact error message that you’re getting – thanks.

  5. I lost my job and I moved and put everything in storage and I cannot find my discs to save my life! I spent over $400 on this software and Adobe cannot help me reinstall CS5 after my hard drive crashed! Such bad luck!

    Without these links I would not be able to take any more classes! I would be stuck, or forced to buy upgrades! THANK YOU!!!

  6. So I finally solved my problem in a very weird way. I downloaded file 2 with Internet Explorer and the .exe with Chrome, and now it works fine.

  7. Also it should be noted that i downloaded the windows trial yesterday just fine. I did not close my browser or anything, tried to get the mac trial and it won’t let me. I have since tried every single step recomended when downloading the files. Still nothing has worked. I am now even getting access denied when i try to download the windows version again. Please help!

    • Yes, unfortunately this occasionally happens for some visitors with Adobe’s servers… It acts inconsistently, so there is no explaining it.

      However the good news is it usually resolves itself, but sometimes takes waiting a bit. Yes, that sounds odd, but that’s what we’ve seen.

      So if you’ve gone through all the tips, and still no luck, try giving it a short rest, or try from another computer. Hope this helps!

  8. @ProDesignTools

    Any ideas how long it usually takes to clear up? I have been waiting roughly 24 hours and still nothing. I also tried from another computer and browsers including firefox, safari, chrome, and internet explorer.

    I have tried leaving my adobe account logged in thinking maybe it was just taking time for their server to realize i was logged in, but this doesn’t seem to be helping either. Any other thoughts?

    • Unfortunately, it could be as long as a couple days, at least based on some of the experiences posted by others here.

      In addition to what you’ve done, you might also try creating a new Adobe ID account and see if that makes any difference… Also see what happens with the CS5.5 trials instead.

      Please keep in touch Chris and let us know how it goes! Strange indeed, but hope it works for you again before too long.

  9. Trying to install dreamweaver but it seems i am missing something, there is no .7z file nor can i find out what to use to install the only available file. Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Reply
    • Greetings Cook, Dreamweaver is actually one of the few applications above that does not have a .7z file – only an .exe file.

      If the single file you downloaded does not have a “.exe” extension, then it must be you were using Internet Explorer – please read this earlier comment and response for how to fix that!

      Thanks and feel free to post back if any further difficulties.

  10. You ever try and try to do something, and the answer was right there the whole time? Ya, thanks for the simple solution!! Have to say this site has better service than Adobe at times as well.

  11. POSSIBLE SOLUTION for DOWNLOAD TROUBLES – Browser dependencies?

    + I was very happy to find a page that was providing these direct links – after my first try on the Adobe website it was accompanied by installation errors. So thank you!

    + I ran into “Permission denied”-notifications, as many others did.

    + I tried with both Firefox and Opera, my standard browsers. Without any belief I started another try, this time with Chrome – one never knows …. Crazy, but that worked for me! Give it a try …

  12. I tried these links today to get the Master Collection trial and got “Oops! Google Chrome could not connect” on chrome, “Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage” on IE8, and “Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server” from FF. I tried from home and office both (2 different ISPs, 2 different cities) after following all the DL tips and clearing cache, etc.

    Are these links still valid?

    Thanks in advance :)

  13. Edit to add: For anyone with a ‘Page cannot be displayed’ type message, make sure your HOSTS file is not blocking the parent, as MvpsHOSTS, the new Spybot S&D HOSTS file changes, hpHosts, and Peter Lowe’s AdServers List all block access to the link server.

    Doh!
