How to Get the New Adobe CC 2022 Direct Download Links

Download the New 2022 Release of Adobe Creative Cloud Now! (Try or Buy)

Last month, Adobe unveiled the Creative Cloud 2022 release in front of hundreds of thousands of attendees at the MAX creativity conference. This major new version includes countless new features and enhance­ments across the entire product line, as well as the appearance of familiar apps on entirely new platforms. The latest 2022 software is available immediately for worldwide download via the CC Desktop App… All updates are included at no additional cost – which means everyone gets either a free upgrade or a free trial.

But some users want or need to access the new tools directly without using Adobe’s download/app manager… This is essential when you want to keep and make permanent offline backups, copy them onto a USB drive for use anywhere, download on one system to install on another (or multiple computers) without re-downloading, have an slow Internet connection which is capped or throttled or hangs/freezes/stops when trying to use the Desktop app to download 20 GB of CC upgrades, etc. All of these use cases necessitate being able to get direct download links for offline installers.

Standalone, complete installers for the CC Desktop app, for Adobe Camera Raw, and for Acrobat DC Pro & Standard are already publicly available – but to date, Adobe has not (yet?) posted the rest of the new Creative Cloud 2022 direct download links. However, good news: you can now actually get them yourself by contacting Customer Service…

Just reach out to Adobe’s Customer Care team via live online chat, and they will immediately give you temp­orary links to download offline installers for all the 2022 apps that you need.

You simply need to ask them. We suggest:

Hello, I need the direct download links (offline installers) for the new 2022 releases of __________. Could you please help me?

You can connect with an agent to get the downloads here. Look for “Contact Us” or “Your contact options…” at the bottom of the page, or the Chat icon at the lower right. If asked, choose the “Download & Install” category.

Look for Adobe's "Contact Us" Icon to Request the 2022 Direct Download Links

We are told that all Adobe customer service reps across all locations have the ability and authorization to distribute the new 2022 standalone installers, which they can access through their internal version repository. We recommend retrying or asking for a supervisor if you run into any difficulty.

Download now

From what we’ve seen, free trial users are having a harder time getting the latest installers… But if you are not currently a paid subscriber, then you could become one to access the 2022 installers you need and then cancel within 14 days for a full refund if you do not wish to continue your paid membership.

Or, You Can Do This Instead…

There is another option. Adobe has a separate offer for anyone in the US or UK to get a free Creative Cloud for Teams trial for 14 days. Teams plan users have access to the Admin Console for creating your own custom Managed packages to download the latest 2022 offline installers and/or previous versions – with updates included – for use wherever you want, on any computer.

No credit card or payment details are required, and you can get started immedi­ately. You can sign up for the Creative Cloud for teams trial if you don’t have an Adobe account, have a free Creative Cloud membership, or have a paid Individual subscription. If you wish, you can purchase Creative Cloud for Teams anytime during or after your trial period, or you can simply let the trial expire automatically after 14 days without payment.

For more info, check out the new Adobe help page detailing this offer:

There is no obligation to remove any of the Creative Cloud apps you install; however they will continue to work only with an ongoing paid membership plan of some type.

But the best part is that you do not lose access to the Admin Console even after your Teams trial expires. You can still sign in to the Admin Console at any time to create new or additional CC installer downloads which you can use anywhere and with any Creative Cloud plan (including the Individuals plans). You can even download older releases.

Get it now

We’ve tried this out and it works seamlessly as described, even if you already have an Individuals plan or if you currently have no paid plan at all. If you go this route, please let us know how it goes, or if you encounter any issues!

As always, we will be following this story closely going forward, and keeping this page up to date with the latest news regarding new offline installers, as well as publishing further information on the status of CC 2022 direct download links.

Changing System Requirements

Also important to know that the minimum system requirements have changed meaning­fully both on both Windows and Mac, in order to take advantage of the latest operating system features and technologies… On Macs, the CC 2022 release now requires macOS 10.15 (Catalina) or later. If you’re not yet running a compatible version of macOS, then you can get a free upgrade directly from Apple to Catalina. Be aware, however, that in Catalina, Apple has dropped support for any older 32-bit programs that you may have. macOS 11.0 (Big Sur) and the newly-launched macOS 12.0 (Monterey) are supported by Adobe as well.

On PCs, Windows 10 (version 1909 or higher) is a fully-supported platform for all Creative Cloud applications. Windows 11 is supported with some caveats. Importantly, except for Acrobat DC, the CC 2022 apps do not support 32-bit or any Windows 7 or Windows 8 operating systems.

Adobe explains that focusing their efforts on more modern OS versions allows them to concentrate on developing the features and functionality most requested by members, while ensuring peak performance that takes advantage of modern hardware. For more details, please consult the complete CC 2022 System Requirements. If these specifications don’t work for you for some reason, then you can continue to use the older CC 2021 applications, or even CC 2019 or CC 2018.
