    CS6 Trial Download - where can I find it?

    joe bloe premiere Level 5

      Perpetual License version (Not Creative Cloud rental)


      Creative Suite Help / CS6 product downloads



      Ignore the erroneous message stating:

      "If you purchased a CS6 product..."

      "You'll need your CS6 serial number to complete the installation."


      This is a trial.  No previous purchase is required, and no

      existing serial number is required to complete installation.

      No Adobe ID or login is required for download.




      Here is an alternate, slightly more complicated download location:


      Adobe CS6 Trial Downloads: Direct Links


      Be sure to read "Note: Very Important Instructions".

      (Requires Adobe ID for download)


      If you do already own a license for C6, all of these trial downloads

      can be authorized online by using your existing serial number(s).

      Perfect for backing up your boxed DVDs.



      Pertinent factoids:


      Adobe Creative Suite 6 FAQ


      Under: "Trial information"

      "Does Adobe have trial versions of Creative Suite 6?"

      "We no longer offer trials of the CS6 versions of the applications."


      You can ignore the above erroneous statement.



      Under: "Upgrade eligibility, pricing, and purchasing options"

      "Adobe will continue to make Creative Suite 6 available as a perpetual

      software license, and will provide bug fixes and security updates

      as necessary. All of the CS6 suite editions and individual products

      continue to be available for purchase by Electronic Software Delivery

      (ESD) on Adobe.com as well as through select retailers.

      Volume licensing for these products is also available

      through Adobe Authorized Resellers worldwide."


      "We plan to sell Creative Suite 6 for use

      on supported platforms indefinitely."
