Upon posting this thread, I have searched the internet for anything of such and I came across a blog post from a website. It details the direct download links for the Adobe products.
To others who have the same dilemma as I had, the links can be seen on the link below:
Just be aware that none of those links point to files stored on Adobe servers so they're all unauthorized downloads.
Hence, the standard disclaimer applies, in that you download at your own risk and there's no guarantee from Adobe that those files will work correctly or that they will be free of viruses or malware etc.
Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the below link:
From Adobe itself? As far as I can see, all the links I've tried on this link http://prodesigntools.com/adobe-cs5-5-direct-download-links.html points to a location on adobe.com.
From Adobe itself?
Perhaps. Hard to tell.
The direct "trials2" link gives me Access Denied.
Clicking the File1 etc links on the prodesigntools website points me to:
[ link removed by forum host ]
which may be a scripted method of accessing the files behind the Adobe permissions wall.
I don't know.
It's easier to get the official download from the authorized Adobe link via DLM, IMHO.
