Where can I download the exe directly? - Linux User

Fortunately, I'm done with Windows and all of its forced update resource-hungry bloatware shenanigans and I've gone back to Linux.

Unfortunatey however, my subscription to Adobe for Photoshop and Illustrator was purchased and used on Windows.

Fortunately however, I've got Wine on Linux so all is not lost. I can get back to work.

Unfortunately however, I need assistance figuring out where I can download the Windows-Specific exe installation files. Under my list of products, it's already detected I'm on a Linux machine and won't let me specify an operating system to download it onto. If it's available for Android, Apple and Windows, wouldn't they have something somewhere that'd let you decide which format you want to download it in?

Thanks for the help in advance

Hi @Atumisk,

Adobe no lonfer ships with offline installers the only way to install the apps is via Creative Cloud Desktop and if that is not allowing you to change the operating system then it seems there is no way the online installation would be able to work. What you can do however is contact support and ask them for a copy of an offline installer for WIN they shoud provide you with a temporary download link for the application.To contact support, login to your account and navigate to the URL below. Make sure that the browser has cookies enabled, and all script blockers are disabled.

You download with the Creative Cloud app. This has to be installed anyway, there is no escape, since it manages the licensing on behalf of all the apps.  This offers direct download links by platform (towards the end). https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/kb/creative-cloud-desktop-app-download.html

 

I'd say the chances of working in Wine are minimal, but let us know, many would be interested.

Sorry but Adobe desktop apps won't run on Linux platform unless you install a VirtualBox and Windows OS.  Adobe products never worked on Linux and probably never will. 

 

Only a few mobile apps (not what you're using) can run on Androids and iOS devices.
