    @ProDesignTools

    OMG is all I can say! I was finally able to download the CS4 Design Premium files this morning and successfully installed the package and am back in business.

    This site has absolutely saved my behind, not to mention many $100’s in repurchasing software I already own.

    Thanks a bunch!

    Ken

    • Hey, that’s great news Ken – glad to hear it all worked out and our site was able to help!

      And thanks again for your magnanimity with the older Macromedia version that couldn’t be found anywhere, not even here.

  2. Paul Sullivan

    @ProDesignTools
    Yes, I’ll second that, Ken!
    Thanks for going out of your way for a complete stranger. You saved MY behind!

    @Ken Matthias
    How did you get it? I followed all the instructions and when I right-click ‘save as’, it says DLM document and it doesnt work

  4. Stephyy

    UGGH.
    Cant find my requirements.
    Too confusing.
    Adobe After Effects cs4?
    Can’t even get that?
    Doesn’t even work.

    • Hi Stephyy, sorry you’re having difficulties… If you could be more specific about what your issue is, someone might be able to help. Also be sure to read the instructions comments above to see if anyone else solved a similar problem with the CS4 trials – thanks.

    @FaYz
    FaYz,

    You have to follow the instructions “to the letter” to get this to work. I am including the post that helped me get it to work.

    ProDesignTools :
    Ken, if you are running into the sign-in screen then try reviewing the instructions plus suggestions from the comments above, and then if you’re still having difficulty please leave a reply – thanks.

    I cleared my browser cache, closed my browser, restarted the browser did the “Download Now” step from the Adobe site for the CS5 trial (logged in, checked Remember Me, then closed the download), returned to this site and right-clicked on each of the files which allowed me to download them correctly. The “trick” was to do the initial step – i.e., clearing your cache and selecting Adobe’s Download Now for the “current” version trial (with Remember Me) then killing the download, and coming back here to get the product you want.

    Hope that helps!

  6. Silvio

    I dont see any “Download Now” or “Remember Me” when i go on the page.

  7. Silvio

    i tried everything but nothing works; when i click on the link to download the file, it says something like “download paused, u r not connected”, plz help

    • Hi Silvio, thousands of visitors are direct-downloading CS4 and CS5 trials here every week, so it does work… If you followed the instructions above carefully and you are running into that message, try clearing the adobe.com cookies (and cache) on your browser and restarting, then relogin at Adobe via that link, and come back here to click the DDL. If that doesn’t work, next try a different Adobe ID account if possible, or a different browser, or computer, and/or Internet connection.

      Over on our CS5 direct download links page, there’s a 8-step list for someone that had difficulties getting their downloads to work… See if the suggestions there might also help you out – thanks.

  8. It worked! After searching the internet for hours on end, I can finally use CS4!
    Thanks for this.

  9. Thank you sooo much. I have the key but have lost my disc and I was getting so annoyed at broken links and signup required and non-working torrents that I was about to burst! I wish would have found this earlier. thank u soooo much.

  10. @Turtle, @Nathan – thank you very much for the kind words, and glad we were able to help out!

    Definitely avoid torrents like the plague… These days it is incredibly danger­ous to install random hacked software on your computer, from unknown and untrusted sources. They have found cracked Adobe bootlegs to be rife with hidden malware, which you likely wouldn’t find out about until too late. The only safe and legal place to download these products is via Adobe, so stick to the real deal only if you value your personal data, privacy, and computer. Thanks again and good luck with the software.

  11. Silvio

    I managed to download adobe photoshop CS4 and after effects CS4 (both File 1 and 2) but when i launch the installation, it says something like “installer failed, some parts of the file are missing, please download all the parts missing.” can someone help me???

    • Hello again Silvio – please make sure you have both files in the same folder. If you do, and you’re still getting a message like that, you may have an incomplete or bad download. See also the tips following this other comment.

      If you’re getting the same error for both products, that would be unusual as they are independent downloads and file sets. But, as Adobe themselves will tell you:

      “With very large downloads and slow and/or problematic Internet connections, there is a small potential for files to be corrupted and not download completely due to packet loss, etc. So the longer the download takes, the more chance there is for a connection issue or packet loss, … [and we] recommend always downloading over the fastest and more reliable connection that you may have. This would include using a hardline connection rather than wireless/wifi, since that might degrade your download speed and make the download take longer, giving more opportunity for your connection to drop etc. and potentially cause problems…”

  12. Pat H.

    Brilliant! I had been searching high and low and was thrilled to find this. Works great, thanks so much for this site.

  13. Silvio

    do u have to extract ‘file 2’ first??

  14. i’ve finally found adobe after effects cs3 and cs4… because cs5 is not compatible with my computer dual-core… haha only 32-bits…

  15. Silvio

    but both file 1(.exe) and file 2(.7z) are in the same folder and when i double-click on the exe setup it always gives me the error of “please download all archives missing” or something like that, plz help

    • Sorry it’s still giving you difficulty Silvio – it sounds like you’re doing things right now, but as suspected earlier, your files didn’t download properly for some reason…

      The best way to be sure whether they downloaded correctly is to compare the MD5 checksums (you can download a free utility to generate them) for the files you’ve got against the following:

      After Effects CS4 Main Product Trial

      B44A2562E56E8939D8E21E2C385F6CAE – ADBEAFETCS4_LS7.exe (Win)
      753CB006F1410AEDFB71F1CDCC5821F4 – ADBEAFETCS4_LS7.7z (Win)
      5E71A6A51E5FBCEFC96073B57D86ED37 – ADBEAFETCS4_LS7.dmg (Mac)

      After Effects CS4 Extra Content

      5F3A7F4593B1EB47E78535FC028C7950 – ADBEAFETCS4_Cont_LS7.exe (Win)
      154426C8D1F42378FF22A960465A5F59 – ADBEAFETCS4_Cont_LS7.7z (Win)
      B6FCAB250A26B779F4676DAA573173CE – AFETCS4_Cont_LS7.dmg (Mac)

      Premiere Pro CS4 Main Product Trial

      86A0884CD9597463F7B5AD68948720E9 – ADBEPPROCS4_LS7.exe (Win)
      00BBC9546D0FD8E3668E586168E23C63 – ADBEPPROCS4_LS7.7z (Win)
      47A8BE9757CD19B3A1AD10E6DC43CED3 – ADBEPPROCS4_LS7.dmg (Mac)

      Premiere Pro CS4 Extra Content

      A312B0DD2EAAC3CD971BF6EAEB15136F – ADBEPPROCS4_Cont_LS7.exe (Win)
      5EFD54D1644AB5A3239C165B0D4A5866 – ADBEPPROCS4_Cont_LS7.7z (Win)
      4A5F718D64F181D1EC8E1609A64A92CE – PPROCS4_Cont_LS7.dmg (Mac)

      If the numbers don’t agree, then that means your files didn’t come across right and you’re not going to get a successful outcome. Please use the techniques we posted earlier to download the software using another browser, computer, or net connection.

      If those don’t work, then suggest you skip the CS4 trial downloads and get After Effects CS4 and Premiere Pro CS4 shipped to you on DVD, and also get CS5 for future use in the process, with our recommendation here. Hope this helps and good luck.

  16. Silvio

    or do i have to download the extra content and put everything in the same folder???

    • The Extra Content is optional but will make the main product better. The Extra Content files (for Windows) are a matched pair and should go in the same directory, just like with the Product Trial files. So they are technically not required to download and install – but if you do, then install them after the main product trial installation has finished.

  17. Anson

    I have to say, I love you guys, indeed!

  18. King Subash

    Finally I catch up with adobe after effects cs4. Thank u very much for this. You have really great stuff in your hands. Thank you, thank you very much once again.

  19. Jamie

    It’s telling me the licensing for this product has expired. Anything I did wrong? I downloaded AE CS4.

    • @Anson, @Subash – that’s great and we appreciate your thoughtful comments, thank you.

      @Jamie, that’s unusual – have you ever had that product, that trial, or any Adobe CS4 trial, running on that computer before? If so, then a new trial installation won’t work.

      If not, you might try uninstalling the software, running the Adobe CS4 Clean Script, rebooting, and trying again. But if you’ve already run a free CS4 trial that’s expired for that product on that machine, you only get one.

  20. Silvio

    yes the numbers agreed but still receiving an error of “parts missing” and stuff

    • Silvio, since you now have a number of failed installations built up, you should probably first follow the same procedure as for Jamie directly above with running the CS4 Cleaner Tool before trying again.

      Then, to help figure out any error message that you get for computers generally: you need to get the exact and complete text, to the exact letter and word, and type it into a search engine, surrounded by quotes. Only then will you get responses that are likely relevant to your problem, and typically your answer lies there.

      In your previous comments on this page, you’ve given various fragments and approximations of the message you got, but you’ll find it difficult to ever find the solution without carefully copying and/or typing it out in its entirety.

  21. Jamie

    @ProDesignTools

    I followed the instructions and it loaded up. Thanks so much :)

  22. tartexs

    i used Akamai Download Manager (adobe) to download at high speed.

    • Thanks Tartex for your comment. Right now we are featuring the direct download links on this page, because some people have had difficulty downloading the files using the Akamai Download Manager (Adobe DLM)… Also, some have reported that using Akamai decreases their download speed. The case can be argued either way, but presently we think providing the direct links (DDL) will reach the most users successfully.

  23. Willy

    Hi! I downloaded cs3 master collection and on running the exe file it brings an error that says, “check available space on your computer and the write privileges on the destination folder”! the available space on the destination folder is 42gb and i am logged in as the administrator! What’s wrong and how can i solve it?

    • Hi Willy, we’ve seen that error message before. Usually it happens when you are trying to install the software to a different disk or machine from where you have downloaded the file(s) to. For some reason the product doesn’t like that, so try moving them all on the same disk and give it another go.

      If that doesn’t work, see this page or this one.
