A while back, I purchased an order through Tech Soup via my non profit organization. We purchased Premiere Pro CS4 Win ESD (Special Donation). A week ago, my computer crashed and I now need to re-download Premiere Pro CS4 Windows.
Tech Soup has an account login and link through Adobe that takes you to their current downloads. Right now, their login takes you to the Adobe page with downloads for the most current Adobe Creative Suite.
I am looking for a download link for Premiere Pro CS4 Windows. I have a valid activation code that is just sitting here ready to be used again, and I have a time sesnite project that needs to be done very soon. I talked to someone in Adobe chat, and they told me to post my question here.
PLEASE help! I really need to find a download link ASAP.
I have NO idea if this site has links to earlier trial versions to then enter your code... but free to look

Oh... if you do find a link to download your version... write the download file to a DVD so this doesn't happen again
This link was found on the site John posted:
As well as always writing downloaded programs to a DVD, you should also make a drive image of your boot drive... once everything is installed and working properly
Hardware crashes or virus infections or simple software problems happen, so you should buy AND USE software to make a full backup of your hard drive to an external USB hard drive... plus, making step-by-step backups during a new setup or major program addition makes it easy to go back a step if something doesn't work
This backup and then restore is, of course, only to the same computer with a new drive (or the same drive as long as you don't mind writing over everything) since doing a restore to a new computer won't work due to Windows and many programs having activation information that is keyed to your hardware (which is why Windows will force you to RE-Activate if you change very much hardware)
The product I use is at http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/image-for-linux.htm
Image runs off of a bootable CD via Linux (the Zip you download includes a program to make the bootable CD) and it reads EVERYTHING on the drive, even the hidden registration information, so everything is restored when needed... and you may restore the image to a brand new drive in case of a crash, and not have to re-install anything
Please note that I own no part of Image, and I don't get a referral fee (that is just a plain web link) but I use the program and it has saved me a LOT of trouble when I had a hard drive die... and I was able to restore everything and not have to re-install or re-activate a single program, from Windows on up
