If you have used any of Adobe CC (creative cloud) based, then you are quite familiar with the struggle of adding extensions to the app. Here you will have an easier way to install, uninstall or download any third-party extensions on your Adobe CC applications by downloading the Adobe ZXP installer on your Windows.
Why Adobe ZXP Installer?
It is clear as daylight that Adobe Extension Manager is no longer supported by the officials.
Adobe Extension Manager is an application used to download, install or uninstall extensions on Adobe products.
However, Adobe Extension Manager is no longer support by the officials. The last version of Adobe supporting Adobe extension was in Adobe CC 2014 which is quite a while.
Still, to solve problems experienced by the users with extensions, a very new app called “ZXP installer” is brought.
ZXP installer is an open-source application and is a replacement for the Adobe Extensions Manager. The application is cross-platform supported. In simple words, ZXP is supported by both Windows OS and macOS.
In extensions support, MXP type extensions were/are not supported by Adobe Extension Manager. Unlike Adobe extension manager, ZXP fully supports MXP extensions. In Adobe extension manager, the only way to use MXP extension was to convert them with the “Convert MXP extensions to ZXP” tool which was normally found in the Tools menu in Adobe Extensions Manager CS6.

Review on ZXP Installer
In comparison to Adobe extension manager and Adobe ZXP installer, I would personally support ZXP installer. As ZXP is an open-source application which means that we have the option to know the app both from the front and back end.
We can review the code and know about the changes in each step. As the application is open source, so the threat of being hacked or contaminated with viruses can also be put aside.
ZXP is free of cost and is fully compatible with any Adobe product. With all the features that Adobe Extension manager provides, ZXP does the same with the option to open ZXP extensions too.
