Hi there;

AdobeDownloadManager.exe is responsible for extracting download instructions from AOM files, which are essentially XML with an appended CRC32 in decimal, and committing the instructions to the file "%APPDATA%\dm.ini" for later processing.

and KCTS is true as stated in my reply too...

Best regards...
