I applied for creative cloud and paid the monthly fees to download Illustrator but it seems my Mac setup is not recent enough ? It is OSX 10.8.5. How can I download Illustrator with a Mac OSX10.8.5 ?
CC 2015 Illustrator requires Mac OS X versions 10.9, 10.10, or 10.11. Please see this FAQ for details:
However, If you want to install CC2014, it should run on Mac OS X v10.7, v10.8, v10.9, or v10.10.
