Standalone installer

I'm a teacher at university who have a sort of CC team model installed on their computers. I wanted my students starts learning from beginning XD but unfortunately you can install it just via the CC app and there is no stand alone installer on line.

I know its not a feature request and its very specific request :)

        Our university also would like to deploy the software with standalone installer solution.

        I had the old version of experience design, however, it keeps remind me to update the newest one when I opened it. Unfortunately, I cannot download the newest one from the download page via website. Please help me.

        I had the same issue.

        I wanted my students to be able to use this. I'm teaching two classes: Mobile Design & Emerging technologies. I have been using the XD preview since the beginning and love it!

        Our IT folks worked overtime to develop a custom installer to add XD to our classroom computers. The issue they had is the preview is not included in the enterprise license.
        They did it! My students need to log-in to CC to use it and if other Apps from the enterprise license aren't launched first (illustrator, Photoshop) they wont launch.

        Not being attached to the enterprises is an issue. XD was just updated (added layers & symbols) and I had a project due last week. Since the students did the update, the update doesn't work on campus. I could not open their files to project them in class.
        Our workaround was to share web links to preview, or pdf export.

        I already miss the live preview, on screen and attached iPhone in class. The immediate feedback is great for new designers working thru interaction iterations.

        Your IT staff can get it on your computers but there remain issues.

        Sigh. Yes. Please add us to the list -- a non-CCDA version is necessary for deployment to labs where end-users will not have admin access and ITPros use modern endpoint management systems.

        I and many others I suppose fail about the hundredth time trying to install Adobe XD from the CC desktop app and it seems like there are no other options.

        I personnaly have the CC suite from my company, and they (it team) don't even know how to deal with installing Adobe Experience CC... ADOBE PLEASE HELP !

        Like many others, we will not be able to offer students at our university the chance to learn this application unless a standalone Mac installer is created.

        Like all the other CC applications, Adobe Experience Design should use widely-accepted Mac or Windows installation processes built with industry-standard .DMG and .EXE/,MSI files, rather than inventing a new scheme that cannot be run standalone and is fully dependent on the CC Desktop App to work.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Being able to install all the CC tools without using the Desktop App has been absolutely essential for an large number of customers since CC first launched in 2013. There are a number of valid and important use cases that break if using a standard, standalone installer is not possible – or if the Creative Cloud Desktop App has issues completing the download or installation (which is not uncommon).

        Requiring a homegrown installation procedure that cannot be worked around in event of failure or offline access would inevitably disenfranchise a significant segment of the potential XD user base when they find themselves stuck with no way to move forward.

        We too need a standalone installer as our school's network architecture makes the use of the CC app a real nightmare and no technician to take care of this kind of task. A dmg file or even a zip would spare us the hassle. So please, please, come back to standalone installers.

        I need a standalone installer for our team members at the university where I work and we don't use Creative Cloud.app. We have licensing through the university.

        I too would like to use Xd and not have to deal with CC desktop app. It would be extremely useful to be able to get it onto the University computers as well.
        The only work around I could think of, and I don't know whether it would actually work, is to use an app cleaner to find all the Xd files on someone else's computer and copy/paste them into the same locations on yours.

        I would like to be able to download and use the new Adobe XD without dealing with the whole creative cloud and all issues that comes with it.
        the creative cloud installer have always been a pain.
        hope to see adobe do sth about this.
        kind regards
