I recently purchased a subscription for the creative cloud student bundle. I am trying to download illustrate onto my Lenovo pro 3 which runs windows 8.1. I have never had adobe before, so I don't have access to any older versions of illustrate. I had tried to find anyway to download an older version but since I didn't have the older versions of Illustrate downloaded in pervious years I don't have to option to "downgrade or redownload" to an older version. I tried contacting support but it was the digital help couter which didn't help at all.....

Felling very exhausted and wondering if I should cancel supscription, as I'm not going to go out and just buy another computer....

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Fawn,

 

As far as I can see, the newest AI version that can run on 8.1 is 22.X from March 2018 (and October 2017), see this,

You ought to be able to go back using the instructions here, with links in the To roll backwards to a prior/earlier CC version (downgrade) section,

which will lead to here for CC2018,

You will wish to avoid its (automatically) updating.
