Adobe Help Manager

What is Adobe Help Manager?

The Adobe Help manager is an AIR-based content installation utility that downloads offline help content and notifies you when new updates are available, ensuring that you always have the most up-to-date and accurate reference information from Adobe. The Help Manager will download either HTML or PDF content, depending on which file is the most recent. You can then view this content offline, either via your default web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) or via Adobe Acrobat Reader (or similar PDF viewing software). The Adobe Help Manager is installed by default with Adobe Creative Suite 6 and many other products.


The primary executable is named adobe help.exe. The setup package generally installs about 2 files and is usually about 3.52 MB (3,688,907 bytes).
