        •   Windows:

       

          1. Some Adobe software installations require two files, an EXE file and a 7Z file. The 7Z file is the larger of the two. Be sure to wait until all the files listed for download have completely downloaded before beginning the installation process.
          2. Navigate to the directory containing the downloaded files and double-click the EXE file to launch it.
          3. A dialog box may appear saying “[Adobe product name] is a file that has been downloaded from the Internet. Select Yes.
          4. Select the folder where you want to extract the installer. By default, it is extracted to a folder on the desktop called "Adobe Version Name\ Product Name". Then select ‘Next’. If you are not prompted for a location for extracting the installer, you can also open the downloaded file from the Open Bundle link on the browser. Select ‘Yes’, and then select the folder where you want to extract the build.
          5. When the extraction is complete, navigate to the location where you extracted the installer.
          6. Before you begin the installation, close all applications currently running on your system including other Adobe applications, Microsoft Office applications, and browser windows.
          7. Double-click the Set-up.exe file to begin the installation. In some cases, the Set-up.exe file opens automatically.
          8. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation.

          2. A dialog box may appear saying “[Adobe product name] is a file that has been downloaded from the Internet. Select Yes.
