[UPDATE (March 2019) – These still work to download the old CS3/CS4 trials from years ago. We also now have Adobe’s all-new CC 2019 Direct Download Links!]

Even though Creative Suite 6 is out and is a phenomenal release, some folks still need the earlier versions for various reasons: 32-bit vs 64-bit (e.g., After Effects and Premiere Pro), compatibility with other software or systems owned, the rest of your class or company is still on CS4, you need to reinstall but no longer have your original disks or download file, etc… But this older software is now hard to find – Adobe doesn’t publicize or provide a web interface for it. So if you’ve been searching high and low all over the Internet to find the official Adobe trial downloads for CS4 or CS3, well your search is over!

CS3/CS4 No Longer Sold – Get Adobe CS6 or CC Now

Below are two tables for CS4 trial downloads in major languages. These links go to the auth­entic and original CS4 files residing on Adobe’s servers, are guaranteed genuine and will not change. For Windows, each program consists of two files, an .exe and a 7-Zip file (.7z). The .exe file will only work once the .7z package is fully down­loaded and resides in the same location. For the Mac, it’s just a single .dmg file for each program.

There are also optional “extra content” (or functional content) downloads included here for most tools that consist of one or two additional files, which you can install separately after the main product is installed. It typically includes fonts, templates, documentation, etc.

Special: Legally download dozens of free Adobe books for a limited time!

The supported languages vary by product. The Western Euro­pean languages can include French/Français, German/Deutsch, Italian/Italiano, Dutch/Nederlands, Norwegian/Norsk, Danish/Dansk, Finnish/Suomi, Swedish/Svenska, Portuguese/Português, and Spanish/Español. To see which product supports which languages, visit the main Adobe trials page and then click on the selection menu for whichever product(s) you’d like to try – it will tell you which languages are currently available.

We suggest using a browser other than Internet Explorer to download any of 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.

*** 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!

Creative Suite 3 – Adobe CS3 Downloads

Here are the links for the official CS3 trials in English, all downloaded from Adobe servers. For CS3 on Windows, there are almost no .7z files; usually it’s only .exe files. For the Mac, it’s all .dmg files. All other instructions remain the same as for CS4 above.

Download New Adobe CC 2019 Free Trials (Direct Links)

If you’re looking for CS2, CS, or an even earlier release, you can try digging around on Adobe’s FTP server for older products (but that’s really only for advanced users).

It is strongly advised not to use unknown sites or sources to download Adobe software, as increasingly these files are being used to deliver viruses and trojans onto users’ computers.

Did these links work for you? Hope they helped out; please let us know with a comment below… And please see our companion page if you want the direct links for the new CC 2019 products.

    Hello, I cannot download Soundbooth CS4 – it says:

    Access Denied
    You don’t have permission to access “…/Applications/Soundbooth/CS4/Win/ADBESBTHCS4_LS7.7z?” on this server.
    Reference #18.645832b8.1534485726.1013f20

    do you have a saved copy that you can share?

    • Well, you need to follow the download directions given in the post above, before clicking on the links.

      That’s required by Adobe’s servers; otherwise the CS3/CS4 direct links won’t work and you’ll get an access/permissions denied message instead. If you still have any difficulties, then try a different web browser, another computer, or Internet connection.

    Hello folks, i already had downloaded Premiere Pro CS4 from this site.
    But that contained a virus. So i was confused and i downloaded it again. I downloaded the Trial versions of Premiere Pro CS4, both the files (Product Trial) File1 and File2 and installed. But my anti-virus showed a malware in both the files. It was “desktoplayer.exe” malware, believe me it is a very nasty virus. It doesn’t go away as you think it would.
    Anti-Virus couldn’t delete it. It could only warn me. From there i uninstalled it.
    If you think you have this virus in your pc, Do one thing.
    See if there is a folder by the name of Microsoft in C:\Program Files (both 32- and 64- bit).
    Also see if there is a file by the name of “desktoplayer.exe” in this folder. It will also create another exe file by the name of “desktoplayerSrv.exe”.
    If you see this, then your pc is infected.
    So far there are few topics that tell you how remove it. But that is different story.
    So i downloaded the same file for (Western Europe) region. From the Second link.
    That was free of virus and it didn’t even ask for “Enter Serial”. That was fine.
    But beware of Creative Suite 4 Trials (English), the first link.
    I bet the people who are using this link, even their pc is already infected by this virus.
    It’s not devastating, but it attacks any exe file, not all but programs that are light and will create another “XXXSrv.exe” file. It just multiplies and multiplies.
    Rendering your exe file useless, the PC will say it is a corrupted file.
    Don’t mind that this is a little long.
    Don’t not blindly download and install anything.

    p.s: I am trying to warn the people and i think you should re-upload those files too.
    It’s laid down with a virus.

    • Sorry, you are mistaken. You may well have had a virus on your computer, but you definitely did not get it from any downloads on this page, or from anywhere on our website.

      We are not a pirate site, and do not offer cracks or hacks of Adobe software… We have never offered illegal or unauthorized downloads, and never will.

      These are direct links to download the original installers from Adobe’s own servers. Everything linked here is absolutely authentic and legitimate. We can not “re-upload those files,” because they always come straight (and only) from adobe.com. End of story.

      So you must be confusing us with a “warez” site somewhere – which is probably where you picked up your virus from, because that’s very common. Or, if you got Adobe’s trial installer via our site, but then downloaded & ran some sketchy keygen or cracking tool that you found elsewhere.

      PS – Just to triple-check, we downloaded the two Premiere Pro CS4 file links that you’re referring to and ran them through 3 different anti-virus programs. Absolutely nothing there and completely clean, as totally expected – because they come from Adobe’s own servers.

    Hello ProDesign, thank you for accepting my post.
    I totally agree; you are not a pirate site. I am not questioning your authenticity and your work ethics. I am on your side too. I’ll take your word and believe what you say, when it comes straight from adobe.com.
    I am aware a user can get a setup file from anywhere, especially if its a warez site.
    But i downloaded your Premiere Pro CS4 file because it can run on a 32bit machine. After CS4 and above, it is available only for a 64bit machine.

    I am so sorry; i forgot to mention, the bootstrapper file which is only 1.17 MB in size: from the first link. i.e.,File 1.
    When i run it; it say “The file archive part of Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 Installer is missing. You need all parts in the same folder in order to extract Adobe Premiere Pro Cs4 Installer. Please download all parts.”
    After this message, i did not know what to do. But i downloaded from the File 2 link.
    Then it downloads the file which is 1.2GB by the name ADBEPPROCS4_LS7.7z
    You must have checked the file by some anti-virus, but the idea is not to scan the file.
    But run and install it and then run the program.
    That is when it creates a file by the name desktoplayer.exe and xxxsrv.exe.
    The anti-virus is not able to detect it, only after it is created would it notify the user. If left unchecked it will multiply again and again. It’s not devastating.
    Believe me, some program were infected and i couldn’t use those programs. After restoring my PC over a months time. My system is clean, i use an anti-virus especially only for USB and i also use a Anti-executable program. Then i have a Restoring Program too. Which allows me to restore to previous a clean state any time.
    The Anti-executable will notify before running any exe file.
    And i remember the name of that infected file. But now my system is clean.
    I thought i would give you and other users a heads-up.
    Sorry i wasn’t clear, it’s from the File2 link. which is in .7z format file.
    Please just do not scan it, install and then run the exe file.

    Then check your c:\Program Files\
    If there is a folder by the name of Microsoft, enter that folder and see if there is a desktoplayer.exe file.
    If u see that, then your PC is infected too.

    Kind regards.

    P.s: That virus is not devastating, but it multiplies over time. Any small program will be infected, and will render it useless. I think you should install that file and see for yourself.

    • All the .exe file (File 1) does is extract the files in the .7z archive (File 2) to a folder of your choosing, typically on the Desktop… You can just as easily use a utility like 7-Zip instead of the .exe file.

      Then the actual CS4 program is installed from the new folder that’s created on your Desktop. You can easily see what’s in that folder, which are all the files that will be installed for the program. And there is absolutely no file by the name you’re claiming.

      Listen, we’re not doubting that your computer had a virus. However, we’re absolutely certain that it didn’t come from here, or from any link on our site. Not unless you’re insisting that Adobe themselves put a virus in the download on their own server. And, of the many thousands of people who have used this webpage to access the CS4 links since 2010, that you’re the only one who makes such a claim. Nobody else has ever had any problem at all.

      As you can see, there are over 2,000 comments on this post since 2010… We’ve read every one of them. Not a single one of them has ever had any issue.

      No, there is no danger here. You must have picked it up somewhere else, and it infected your Adobe install – as well as all the other .exe’s on your system, which you clearly acknowledge.

      Appreciate your trying to help, but it’s not actually helpful.
