Thanks but the system timed out because -from what I could gather- it was
taking to long to download.
Do you have any idea as to what the problem may be?
The problems must be on your end; I just downloaded the two installers from Mike's links, and they completed each within less than 1 second (and I am some 10,000 km away from the Adobe/Akamai servers).
Antivirus or firewall are preventing the connection from remaining open.
Unfortunately, I was thinking the same thing: my computer.
