Mac Wont Download Adobe

Posted on by
  1. Often the issue is related to one or the other download managers (DLM) that Adobe uses to deliver its software install­ers. Over the years and for various tools, they have used the Akamai Down­load Manager, the Adobe Down­load Assistant (ADA), the Adobe Applica­tion Manager (AAM), and now the Creative Cloud’s Desktop App.
  2. Standalone, complete installers for the CC Desktop app, for Adobe Camera Raw, and for Acrobat DC Pro/Standard are already publicly available – but to date, Adobe has not (yet?) posted the rest of the new Creative Cloud 2020 direct download links. However, good news: you can now actually get them yourself by contacting Customer Service.
  3. This usually happens when you have an old version of Flash running on your Mac. It’s actually Apple that blocks this old version from running to secure your Mac against vulnerabilities in the Flash Player. Updating to the latest Flash Player version should fix this problem. Is Adobe Flash Player Safe?

Adobe Reader and Acrobat Cleaner Tool

The Adobe Reader and Acrobat Cleaner Tool removes a standalone installation of Reader or Acrobat, including any preferences and settings that may be preserved during a standard program uninstall.


While most installs, uninstalls, and updates operations happen without incident, there are cases where a user may not be able to complete such tasks due to some registry or file conflict on the machine. This is particularly problematic when permissions set on plist entries or files prevent the successful installation of new installs and/or updates. The Adobe Reader and Acrobat Cleaner Tool is designed to fix such issues by cleaning up corrupted installations, including removing or fixing corrupted files, removing or changing permissions registry entries, etc. The tool provides options for removing problematic Acrobat items only while leaving Reader untouched and vice versa.

Known Issues

  • If you have both Acrobat and Reader installed, removing the product that is the default PDF viewer can result in the other product failing to become the new default PDF viewer. When this problem occurs, run Repair on the remaining product and reboot the machine to make the remaining product the default PDF handler.
  • For Acrobat Pro Extended 9.x, the tool leaves the Acrobat entry in Add Remove Programs. To manually remove this entry, run an uninstallation from the ARP entry or manually remove the following registry entries:
    • Windows 32 Bit OS: HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionUninstall<Product-Code>
    • Windows 64 Bit OS: HKLMSOFTWAREWow6432NodeMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionUninstall<Product-Code>
    • The product code is language specific. For example, for EFG it would be {AC76BA86-1033-F400-7761-000000000004}
  • The Cleaner Tool removes the Reader 9.x or Acrobat 9.x installation even if the user chooses Cancel at the Files in Use dialog during uninstallation. The File in Use dialog appears when you try to uninstall a product that is already running.
