How do I get rid of the CS6 trail version. i cannot find it in Finder, yet the new CS6 that I purchased will not install because it states that the trail version is on my MAC?
The retail version doesn't care about trial versions. It would simply overwrite them. Sounds more like you have the Public Beta for Photoshop CS6 or something liek that on your system and it's causing a conflict. If so, check the PS forum. There's a sticky thread on how to removce it.
