I've just installed CS6 and I'm running into the same problem I did when I upgraded to 5.5 at the time. I'm running into 3 problems.
1. The files I created using CS5.5, aren't automatically recognized as CS6 files. For instance, an InDesign 5.5 file has a white 'note' icon. When I force the file to be opened with InDesign 6 by default, the icon changes to a white note with a tiny InDesign icon in it, instead of a full CS6 icon:
2. But that's not the most annoying thing. When I open up a CS5.5 file in CS6, it doesn't remember it's location. So when I save it, it treats the file as a new file and I have to browse back into my filing structure to find the original file location and overwrite that. It marks it as [converted] in the file name when I open it. Maybe that has something to do with it?
I just noticed it does the same thing with my Photoshop files.
3. I also noticed that, although I uninstalled 5.5 after installing 6, that the old 5.5 folders are still in the Adobe folder. Does that have something to do with it, maybe?
Do you have a solution or this perhaps?
None of what you describe is in any way unusual. Everything works as intended, given how you went about the matter. Files are opened as "Converted" for your own safety and since this counts as an "Untitled" file that has never been saved, there is no path to remember. The remaining folders contain user data and the installer just keaves it in place because it doesn't care for it. On the bright side, it will stil lbe there if you ever need it. and your icon issue is just because you uninstalled CS5.5 after installing CS6. It made a mess with file associations. Simply reinstall CS6. Again, everything perfectly normal, if a bit annoying.
Thanks for the quick answer! Ok, if that's what it is, a bit annoying, I'll live with it . I'd just like my icons to appear as they should. I reinstalled CS5.5 but that didn't do it, so I'm uninstalling bot versions now - what do you suggest? Installing CS5.5 first and then CS6 - leaving CS5.5 running on my computer? In that case, do I have to set the files to 'open with CS6' as default program by right-clicking a file and choose open with CS6? Or is there another way to have files opening with CS6 by default (thus not messing up the icons)?
Or will just installing CS6 do the icon trick when everything is uninstalled?
