An unstable Internet connection is the most common cause of problems that occur with large file downloads, such as downloads of complete, retail versions of Adobe applications, or tryout versions of Adobe applications larger than 4 MB. To successfully download files from any website or FTP site, you must have a stable connection to the Internet. You can test whether your Internet connection is stable by downloading files from popular sites other than Adobe's, such as www.microsoft.com/ and www.apple.com/ . If you can successfully download files from other popular sites, your Internet connection is likely to be stable, and you should be able to successfully download files from the Adobe website or FTP site.

Note: Adobe does not support third-party software, including, but not limited to, web browsers and FTP client applications. An FTP client application is an application that is designed primarily for accessing FTP sites. Notably, it offers no web browsing capabilities. FTP client applications are recommended only for users who are experienced with accessing FTP sites directly. Examples of FTP client applications are Fetch for Mac OS by Jim Matthews and Dartmouth College, and WS_FTP Pro for Windows by Ipswitch.
