Thanks. This was a lot of help. Found exe and msi files easily. Now to see if they will extract.
Thanks for the help, the links will certainly be of help. I would really appreciate it if Adobe sorted it out though.
We have since implemented a TMG firewall and I have tried all sorts of rules to allow the downloads to take place. If I place a machine on the otherside of the firewall in the perimeter network, the download manager works fine.
I conclude that our proxy firewalls are definately doing something with the DLM. Something for Adobe perhaps - it would be helpful if they provided documentation for this sort of thing as I am sure we are not the only company to use a proxy (ISA\TMG)
I am experiencing the same exact issue, both with ISA 2006 and TMG. Although downloading full installations is a workaround, I would rather get the updates to work. By monitoring the traffic during a download attempt, I have captured the following entry from my ISA server:

Can anyone make sense of this and advise on creating an ISA/TMG rule to allow Adobe updates? 10.10.11.23 is the Internal NIC on the ISA Server. I'm sure many ISA/TMG Admins would like to resolve this issue.
