It's ok, sorted it myself in the end! Seems too many subfolders, to my Program files, was the problem. So tried saving it to my Downloads folder instead and it seems to be working.
One question though - even though I downloaded the Download Manager almost 1 month ago, does my 30 day trial start from then or does it start from today, when I actually downloaded the trial version itself?
Even though there's been 99 views of this post, I'd appreciate it if one of you at least could reply if you have an answer to this question!
Thanks for advising! When you say the trial starts when i install the software - you mean the Photoshop program I downloaded & installed today and not the Adobe Download Manager I installed a few weeks ago?
Why is it not possible to install it in the Program Files? As it is a program I wonder why? Is it due to the fact it's the trial version or is it that even if it was the full version it still wouldn't be possible to install into Program Files?
Thanks for advising!
Correct it started when you installed Photoshop.
As for why the Adobe Download Assistant is unable to download the install files to the Program files folder. This is because it would require elevated administrator access to write the files there. Since it is just a download manager there is no reason to request this right. As you observed when you run the installer it installs the application to the Program Files folder.
