Upgrade advice... please

May 3, 2012 4:28 AM

I have the student edition of CS5 standard and wish to upgrade this to CS5.5 Standard - but the commercial edition

 

I can't get ANY help from adobe live chat and can't ring through to support as I don't have a landline - and the website says nothing about moving from a studnt license to a commercial one

 

can anyone tell me how to do this, as I think I may be overcomplicating the process in my head

 

and also how much it will cost (I have a figure of £386.53 in my head for a normal upgrade, but fear it will be different as I own a student edition)

 

I don't want to just go ahead and purchase the standard upgrade if I find it is rendered useless and uncompatible with my current student edition of the software

 

Thanks for your help

 

Tim

    Academic versions carry fully upgrade rights to commercial versions. If you're going to do this do it very, very quickly.

     

    If you buy CS5.5 before Monday you'll get CS6 for free. If you wait, you'll have to buy CS6 and it will cost more...or you could go to Creative Cloud.

    Assuming you have a legal academic CS5 license, then yes, it should be fine. Note: I do not work for Adobe and I certainly wouldn't try to activate the CS5.5 license without have that legal CS5.

    You’ll get an email telling you how to download CS6.

    It won’t be a coupon…it will be a link.

    You can still download the software without installing it…and I strongly suggest making a backup.

    Honestly, I don’t know the EXACT timing for any of this, only that buyers of Cs5.5 will receive an email notification of when and where to download CS6.

    If you’re buying directly from Adobe you don’t need any proof of purchase.
