Install CS after CS6?

Aug 4, 2012 2:08 AM

Tags: #cs #plugins #cs6 #older_photoshop_versions

Hello,

 

Sorry if this question has been asked before, but I cannot find a way to browse the forum.

I just bought Photoshop CS6, but to my horror found the plugins not working. So I thought to install an older copy of CS to be able to at least work with filters again. Now it says it does not recognize the serial code any more.

Is this because I already have CS6 installed? I also tried to use the serial number of the CS6 version to install CS again, but neither of them worked.

Stuck with CS6, no plugins, or is there a solution?

Thank you for your help!

 

Anne

    What plugins are you referring to?

     

    What OS version are you using?  (CS is kinda old for some newer OSes)

    You didn't answer Chris Cox's question about the exact version of your OS (Operating System).

     

    As he says, I wouldn't even try to install and run CS on a modern OS (Operating System) which you necessarily MUST have if you are running Photoshop CS6.

     

    Those plug-ins you mention are third-party plug-ins.  I would check with the developers to see if they have updated versions of their plug-ins you can install and use with CS6.

     

    Also, yes having an older version of Photoshop installed usually prevents you from installing a newer version, at least on a Mac.

    No; my bad!  Sorry. 

     

    I meant to type:  "…yes having a newer version of Photoshop installed usually prevents you from installing an older version, at least on a Mac."

    Well, you could get a cheap, used Windows box running an older version of the OS, like Windows XP or earlier, to run your ancient CS.

    Did you install the 32 bit version of photoshop cs6 along with the 64 bit version?

     

    If so did you try the plugins in the 32 bit version of photoshop cs6?

     

    The 32 bit version of cs6 should be in:

     

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS6 and the plugins go in the folder Plug-Ins

    Could give an example of the plugins that don't work?

     

    While cs should install and run on windows 7, i probably can't help you with the serial number problem.

     

     

    There is also the option of virtual xp if you happen to have windows 7 professional or ultimate.

    Or if you have an old windows os install diisks, you could use a virtual machine like vmware player or virtualbox.

    Yeah those plugins definitely won't work in 32 bit version cs6, even with having the Msvcrt10.dll , but they do work in 32 bit version of cs5 with the Msvcrt10.dll, so i guess something changed in the 32 bit version of cs6.

     

    Are you talking about the one called Quick Tile as your favorite?

    The only thing i think of about the cs serial number might be that you entered the letter o instead of zeros maybe

    and also the number should be 24 digits long.

    This a pretty good one for free that should work in the 32 bit version of cs6, though not as good as the psp edge effects>seamless tiling.
