Adobe CS6 Direct Download Links Without Akamai Download Manager

The Adobe CS6 direct download links have leaked and are NOW available at the usual post.

So far I have added CS6 direct download links for the following Adobe products.

Adobe After Effects CS6

Adobe Design Standard CS6
Adobe Dreamweaver CS6
Adobe Flash Professional CS6
Adobe Fireworks CS6
Adobe Illustrator CS6
Adobe InCopy CS6

The language codes for the Adobe products are:

LS3   - ko-KR / zh-CN / zh-TW
LS4   - da-DK / de-DE / es-ES / es-MX / fi-FI / fr-FR / fr-CA / it-IT / nb-NO / nl-NL / pt-BR / sv-SE

LS7   - English / French / German / Italian / Japanese / Korean / Spanish
LS16 - en-US / en-GB / ja-JP

I am still verifying that all the products have the correct languages listed. So far this seems correct. If you find a mistake please do let me know so that I can update the list.

Soon there might be more links coming out, however I have chosen to only give you the online links at this moment. As soon as there are more live links the usual post will be updated.

Enjoy your Adobe product trials without having to deal with the dreaded Akamai Download Manager as well as 7 days early to the official release.

Adobe Direct Download Links Without Akamai Download Manager

Find genuine direct download links to Adobe software, CS2, CS3, CS4, CS5, CS5.1, CS5.5, CS6 and download without using the Akamai Download Manager.

October 2016 Update:

Adobe has given up and finally understood that users need to be able to download their software without hassle.  Download all the CS6 and below Adobe products you like directly from Adobe's website Help Section.

Here are all the direct download links for Adobe products.

You do not need to be logged in.
You do not need any special tricks.
You just click the links and they download.
This INCLUDES all CS6, CS5.5, CS4 and CS3 Adobe products.

Problems with the Akamai Download Manager? Not able to download the latest Adobe trial? Lost or scratched install discs? Formatted hard drive with your installed and registered Adobe product? Forced to buy costly updates when you still have valid registrations for older products? Don't look any further! Here is your solution.

I have compiled a list with Adobe Direct Download Links of possibly all the Adobe products including the latest CS6. If there is a product or link missing please do let me know and I will add it.

I try to keep this list updated. Please do get in touch if you can help keep this list updated.

August 2014 Update:

Yes, the links still do work! I had a few issues getting them to work due to the following.

Using Firefox and the add-on HTTPS Everywhere (HIGHLY recommended!!) I had to temporarily change Firefox's settings.

What happens is that Adobe has so called mixed content, so content that is served via http as well as https on the trial download page and Firefox (and I assume other browsers as well) block this sort of stuff.

To temporarily tell Firefox to NOT block this mixed content follow these instructions:

Once you have ONLY temporarily changed these settings in Firefox (DON'T forget to change them back after the download as finished!!) the trial download on the link given in the Download Instructions below under point 3. will work.

Proceed  as normal with the Download Instructions. You will ONLY be allowed to download from the direct download links once you successfully clicked on the yellow "Download now" button AND on the next page that opens you get a windows asking you where to save the download. ONLY then the Adobe session cookie is set in your browser and ONLY then will the direct download links work.
