Adobe Reader offline installer

Adobe has now fallen for the terrible habit of providing online installers and hiding links to offline installers as well. For Flash, this makes things really tedious (here is Flash 32 bits / 64 bits for non-IE browsers btw) because the folders where you can download it aren’t browsable. But for Adobe Reader the downloads are served by FTP (for the moment at least), so it’s fairly easy to find the latest offline installer once you’ve found any of them. So here is Adobe Reader X 10.1.1, and for later versions you can browse around ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/10.x/.

    I also deplore the hiding of links to offlilne installers (Adobe being, in my opinion, the worst offenders at this), and collect and record links to offline installers as i find them:

    Adobe Reader for Windows
    ——
    http://get.adobe.com/reader/enterprise
    ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader (and then drill down to the desired version)

    Adobe Flash Player for Windows
    ——
    http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/fp_distribution3.html

    Adobe Shockwave Player for Windows
    ——
    http://get.adobe.com/shockwave/otherversions (and select full installer)

    Microsoft Silverlight
    ——
    http://www.silverlight.net/downloads (and select End-User Runtime for Windows, 32-bit or 64-bit as required)

    Google Chrome for Windows
    ——
    https://www.google.com/chrome/eula.html?standalone=1

    Skype for Windows
    ——
    http://download.skype.com/SkypeSetupFull.exe
