    Out of curiosity... how do we know that it hasn't been tampered with?

  3. You don't, unless you get it from the developers web site. And, seeing as
    how it is free I don't understand why people insist on downloading it, and
    similar files, from the logical web sites of the various developers.

    If you follow the instructions on Adobe's site you won't have an issue.

    And technically, what you are doing is illegal if you read Adobe's EULA.

    IF Microfox did exactly what he said he did, then it is NOT illegal. It
    might be against the EULA for Adobe software and therefore a contract
    dispute, but not *illegal*. Geez!

  9. Some programs are installed via CD offline, so one then would need to
    distribute it that way as well. Adobe has a distribution license that one
    signs that allows one to do this. BTDT.

    Which rules in the DCMA specifically? I don't see what you are
    referring to.

    Yes, I'm like that. I want to download it from the developer's site [or at
    least sites his site has links to for the download e.g. SmartFTP website
    download page links direct to a Download.com page]. Why people want to get
    these things from wryd, obscure and odd sources is beyond me .. am I missing
    something?

    Bill Frisbee apparently is not confident enough of himself to back up
    his claims that that unpacking an installer is a violation of the DCMA.
    You discredit yourself again Bill! LOL

    Um, I cannot live on the Newsgroups...

    YOU may be able to but I have both a family and work.


    Kindly go read section 2.5 of the Adobe EULA.

    Breaking the rules set forth under an EULA and then continuing to A.) Use
    said software and B.) Continuing to distribute said modified software, are
    direct violations of the DCMA.

    Which ones? Quote them and provide a link. Back up your words,
    otherwise, they are no more and useless words in a post.
