Downloading and installing applications from Creative Cloud is a seamless, one-click experience. Download times will vary based on the file size of the product you select and the speed of your Internet connection. In all cases, a high-speed connection of some type is required. Here is examples of estimated download times:

    Is there a way to make the Adobe Application Manager download the archive containing the software on another disk? (I am not talking about setting a different install folder, my understanding is that the application downloads the files in a Temp folder on my C: Drive)
    My problem is this: I got a SSD as boot drive but the size is very limited (Effectively 52GB) and I am experiencing troubles in downloading the whole suite: Illustrator, Flash and other programs do not have enough size to download and extract on my C: drive.


    Looking forward to an answer.

    You can try adjusting the location of your temporary directory.  This will be a system configuration issue though and not adjustable through the Adobe Download Assistant itself.

    can I select pictures before full extraction takes place?

    No the application must be fully downloaded and installed prior to being able to be utilized.
