I do remember we used to have a forum dedicated for General Adobe CC issues. I cannot find the forum now.

 

My question is related to the legacy (older) Creative Cloud applications which we used to get in the desktop menu, see below…

Recently Adobe changed the desktop menu fully, and we're now limited to two older versions only from the desktop menu

We, however, can access yet one other older version from this help page.

 

I have a large Academic client who has a Certiport Testing Center for their faculty and students to be Adobe Certified Associate. The issue is Certiport system is only compatible with the following versions…

Photoshop 2018 version: 19.1.8
Illustrator 2018 version: 22.1
Premier Pro 2018 version: 12.1.2

 

Now, the above versions aren't too old, I'm surprised that Adobe would give us a chance to download v.2017, but not 2018?

 

Any clue where we can get above-shown version?

Zaid_Al_Hilali, good evening.CC2018 products can still be downloaded from the link below. https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/kb/creative-cloud-apps-download.html However, it is unconfirmed whether a minor update has been applied, so please try installing it to check it.   * If you are using Team version or Enterprise version, you can also deploy from Admin Console, and it seems that the update has been applied.

I've just noticed this issue, of course at a time when I need to install an older version.

Both the links shared here now redirect:

Super link indeed just like David said, it explains a lot about the situation.

I'm posting below an excerpt from the long explanation posted on the site…

 

UPDATE (Nov. 2019) – The new Creative Cloud 2020 direct download links are now available.

Adobe has just made a big change to the version availability and usage of its creative software products, both for CC and CS applications…

Since the advent of Creative Cloud in 2012, subscribers have been able to use any version of the CC products that has ever been released. Some customers use prior versions due to compatibility with evolving system requirements, or because co-workers have standardized on the same earlier release.

 

However, effective immediately, Adobe has completely discontinued certain older versions of Creative Cloud apps and as a result, under the terms of the licensing agreement, subscribers are no longer licensed to use them.

Per their recent email, “We ask that you discontinue all usage of the unauthorized products listed in this table, and instead update to the authorized versions provided. You will continue to receive all the value that Creative Cloud has to offer, but with more advanced features and capabilities, critical bug fixes, and security updates. For these reasons we recommend all customers use the latest release of our Creative Cloud applications.”

Which would be fine. If Adobe were reliable enough that the latest versions did everything older versions did without trouble. So explain to me which bright spark at Adobe HQ thoughy removing older stable versions of software we subscribe to monthly was a good idea? Because it cannot have been anyone who ever needed to meet a deadline and had to search around for answers and solutions that would be solved if they could access older versions of sodtware that worked.
