Adobe Flash CS4 Trial Download

I just spent about half an hour trying to download the Adobe Flash CS4 Trial from adobe.com. Obviously downloading a file shouldn’t be big thing but now it turned out to be a bit trickier.

Adobe uses Akamai download manager for some downloads and that’s where my trouble started. Everything goes as it is supposed to until the Akamai download manager popup opens. Then… nothing happens. The download doesn’t start. I tried the download first with FF3, then with IE7 and finally with opera. The result was always the same. The download didn’t start. After a little struggle I noticed that the download managers url included urls to both files needed for the installation:

http://trials.adobe.com/dlm.html?files=http://trials.adobe.com/Applications/FlashPro/CS4/Win/ADBEFLPRCS4Win_LS1.exe|http://trials.adobe.com/Applications/FlashPro/CS4/Win/ADBEFLPRCS4Win_LS1.7z

So obviously that is supposed to tell Akamai download manager which files to download except it doesn’t work :) . Not for me anyway. So if you are experiencing same problems just use the direct download links below.

Direct download link to the .7z file
Direct download link to the .exe file

And here is the download link for Mac (thanks to Ukyo):

    LOVE! I’ve spent all weekend trying to get a CS4 trial for my mac only to get redirected to Adobe’s f***ing CS5 download. You’ve just made my week. THANKS!

    Thank you kind sir! This is priceless considering adobe has removed all CS4 trials off of their site and wouldn’t ya know I need it for school. Thx again!

    Ugh, Rima, I got the same problem, but my Sister cancelled it when she logged off my file. So, it just takes me back to the CS5 stuff. This totally sucks, I really need this! D: If anyone finds out a way around this, please let me know!

    I have a mac G5 with PPC processors NOT Intel. The more modern apps need Intel on macs but I do have Adobe some CS4, Photoshop,bridge,device central and extension manager. I am currently downloading FlashPro using link supplied by Ukyo which is currently connected and downloading so thanks for that.
    Anyone know the direct links for other parts of the CS4 for trial, as want to evaluate before purchasing and have got very frustrated like others here with Adobe downloads.

    Sadly the mac download for Flashpro does not install so am sure Adobe have disabled it there end. It is very frustrating they will not old computer users try CS4 before buying. Would we not all like to afford a mod high spec computer apple or pc that can cope with CS5 or Final Cut 3?

    I usually do not write a leave a response, however I read a few of the remarks on Adobe Flash CS4 Trial
    Download | timovirtanen.com. I do have a couple of questions for
    you if it’s okay. Could it be just me or does it give the impression
    like some of these comments look like they are coming from brain dead folks?
    :-P And, if you are writing at other online social sites,
    I would like to keep up with everything new you
    have to post. Would you make a list of all of all your public pages like your Facebook page,
    twitter feed, or linkedin profile?|
