CS6 Design/Web Premium Windows Upgrade (for CS5.5 Design Premium) is shipped and on its way for 5/10/12 delivery. Reading on these boards about CS6 installation problems (plus the installation difficulties for CS5 upgrade from CS4), prompt me to ask:
What is the best way to install the CS6 upgrade?
Is there a CS6 clean tool available?
I would ordinarily first deactivate and uninstall CS5.5 Design Premium.
Is this the best way to proceed?
If you do not want to keep a CS5.5 concurrent installation , this is the best way in my opinion.
The CS5.5 uninstallers do not remove everything of CS5.5 however. There will be e.g. left overs in the Help titles of the CS6 Help Manager. There is a cleaner tool: http://www.adobe.com/support/contact/cscleanertool.html
Thank you for this information and cleaner tool link.
I am assuming that, since I have the CS5.5 serial #, once CS5.5 is deactivated, uninstalled and cleaned up, I will be able to install the CS6 upgrade smoothly (if necessary, entering the CS5.5 serial # during the installation).
Hopefully, should work OK.
Indeed, I cleaned up, uninstalled and everything works in CS6. I have to admit that I have other issues and found a work-around, but they may be an isolated case..I am keeping Adobe posted on these forums about that. So far, so good.
