Direct Download Links

Many products on our site now use the Installer, which securely delivers software from's servers to your computer.

Products that use the Installer also have a separate Direct Download Link that you can click to download without using the Installer, if you prefer.

The Direct Download Link is located in the bottom left corner of the "Quick Specs" box at the top of every product page, as highlighted in the screenshot below.

Only products that use the Installer will have a separate Direct Download Link.
