Backing up installers

Aug 9, 2012 11:08 AM

Tags: #reinstall #installation

I am new to the creative cloud as of today (8/9). The IT pro in me wants to make sure I backup the DL'd installers for the applications in case something happens and I cannot immediately get back on the 'net to redownload. Can anyone tell em where they are located on my local system. Did some digging and it sounds like they should have nbeen in the %temp% folder but I could not locate them there. Any help would be appreciated

    Hi Mjm917,


    The installers managed through the Adobe Application Manager are not really able to be stored for later installations. My best recommendation would be to just save the trial download installations for CS6 products, most can be licensed as part of  Creative Cloud with the "License This Software" option. The only products this doesn't apply to are Acrobat, Lightroom, Flash Builder and Muse.

    Hope that helps,
