I also tried direct downloading but it says I don't have permission from the server. I'm using Chrome if that helps any.
You will want to complete solution 1 in Troubleshoot Adobe Download Assistant - http://helpx.adobe.com/creative-suite/kb/troubleshoot-download-assistant.html#main_Solutio n_1. Also where are you trying to download the install files too?
Alternately you can utilize the steps listed in http://forums.adobe.com/thread/981369 to initiate a direct download.
