After upgrading to DW CS6 can I Delete CS5.5 on a Mac?

I just purchased the upgrade to CS6 on my Mac, and now seem to have both CS5.5 and CS6 active. can I safety delete CS5.5? I'm thinking that it can't just delete everything, because my sites and all that came over with the upgrade when I started it.


Does Adobe provided a safe removal? I now have a lot of CS3 things (for my current Photoshop version) CS5.5 and CS6.  Seems that's a waste of space.


Any help on this would be very much appreciated.

    New versions of Adibe products are not dependent on previous versions but from my reading you do have some things to think about.


    I have versions installed going back to the first CS when I get round to installing CS6 I'm going to have a clean out. I don't think there's anything critical for me there and 99% of the work saved for me is HTML/CSS. I guess you might need to think about any plugins or extensions you use.

    I remember getting CS3 at the end of its life to qualify for an u/g to CS4. I'm pretty certain that I needed the old disc to do that.  I've just done the same with CS5.5 and didn't need the old discs, just my Adobe ID.


    The install of 5.5 threw up a shed load of reported errors although the main apps all seemed to work OK.  I uninstalled CS4 and ran the clean-up tool and then went straight to a trial version of CS6.  No problems at all.


    I was happy to uninstall CS4 because I don't have any plugins or extensions and most of the files I save from anything I do in Adobe applications are standard files .php .htm .jpg .png apart from .ai from Illustrator.

    I fixed this by going to the Adobe Store, signing-in, re-downloading the product, and re-installing.


    Well sorry to hear that.  I sat through the download process the same afternoon.  It takes an absolute age!


    Hope it is fixed now.
