How To Download Adobe Reader Full Installer From Official Site?

Since Linux users are allowed to get the latest PDF reader setup file in full, why can’t Windows users allowed to download Adobe Reader offline installer to facilitate multiple installations?

If you’re using Windows and desperately looking for the latest Adobe Reader X full installer, here is a trick to get it directly from official site:



Yes, by tweaking user agent string of web browser (or download manager)! For example:

Right click on Google Chrome shortcut and select Properties, go to Shortcut tab, then append --user-agent="Mozilla Linux" to the string in Target box:

One can easily change Google Chrome user agent string.

Note, that UA am using is dummy. One of the proper UA of Linux Firefox is this:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9b5) Gecko/2008042803 Red Hat/3.0b5-0.beta5.6.el5 Firefox/3.0b5

Just in case the dummy UA doesn’t work, change it with a proper UA and try again. Am using this to get Adobe Reader X 10.1.0 standalone installer for my 3 Windows machines (without having to download thrice!).
