CS4 - Master Collection download link

I have a registered version on the master collection but purchased the disc version. My install disc is damaged and customer service says that they have no access to the download version of the product. Does anyone have a download version that I can get or the access portal that can be used for the download?

Why Adobe can't give this to me is beyond me and so far everyone that I have talked to at tech support says that they don't have access to previous versions even though they must reside on their servers.

Do a search on these forums for a user named Technolux. Look under his/her profile and go to the website that is listed there. This user has all of the links to the downloads posted there for the previous Adobe programs.

This forum is about the forums themselves, not about an Adobe product. If you go to http://forums.adobe.com/community/ you can find the appropriate forum in the list. You should try one of the creative suite forums (the one for your operating system) or the forum for download issues.

The links provided autmatically reroute me to the download of the page

for the new version CS5 and I do not want to upgrade at this time.

Anyway around this?

Or does someone have the actual link for a download of Windows CS4 Master collection?

Thanks

DO NOT double-click on the links.  As I indicated, they're on an FTP site.

Instead, right-click on the applicable link and do a "Save Link As".

Incidentally, these are the same links contained in the blog (Technolux) singled out by the previous poster in this thread.

Hi Tai Lao

I have a similar issue.  I tried what you suggested (right clicked the link and saved as), then opened the link

, but was told it is not combatible with my operating system.  I'm running Windows 7 64 bits.  Any suggestions?

Yes,  Make sure you're downloading the Windows version and not the Macintosh version.
