CS5 Master Collection Corrupted after PS6 Beta install

I have CS5 Master Collection installed.  I installed the Photoshop CS6 Beta and now CS5 doesn't work.  Specifically, these programs (so far:) Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Premiere Pro, Flash and InDesign.  I'm still checking the other programs.  They crash as soon as I try to open them.  No crash reports - it starts to open and then just closes!

 

My system:  Macbook Pro, OS 10.6.4, 2.4 Intel 2 duo chip, 4 gig ddr2 memory.

    I am on Win 7 64 bit, with CS5 MC - installing the CS6 beta did not have any negative effect on the CS5 MC.

    Just a thought ...

     

    This may help!

     

    Uninstall the Beta Version of Photoshop CS6 now and then restart your computer and see if that works.

    Open the CS5 Master Collection programs and see if that fixed the problem and it is all working as it should again.

     

    A similar problem has also happened to a CS4 User and I just now made this suggestion to them as well.

     

    It is worth a try!

     

    All the best.

    Mac, 10.7.3 here, no problems at all with CS5 MC on my machine.

    I have the PSCS6 beta on my mac and windows computers both with MC 5.5 running without any hitch.

     

    Maybe a reboot is in order?

    Perhaps you could try resetting the preference files for some of the apps and see if that resolves the false starts.

    How do I reset my preferences?

     

    Else fails, try Tracey's suggestion above.
