Greetings all, this has been my first time buying Adobe products so please bear with me.
I bought CS5.5 Design Standard Student Edition for Windows, and I have yet to install my complementary upgrade to CS6.
Now, last week I received a Mac as a graduation present.
I was wondering if it would be possible to have my complementary copy of CS6 crossgraded to my Mac, while also keeping CS5.5 on my Windows machine?
I guess another way to ask the question would be: Does my upgrade to CS6 replace my CS5.5 licence, or do I own both CS5.5 and CS6?
Its my hope to have Design Standard on both my machines, without having to join the Cloud, even if they are not the same version.
Thanks for your time!
Does my upgrade to CS6 replace my CS5.5 licence,
Exactly that. Upgrades are supposed to run on the same machines as the previous versions. You can't expand your empire by re-using the previous versions on different machines. Kinda defeats the whole purpose of discounted upgrade pricing, don't you think? If everyone did it, there would be no upgrades and we all would always pay full price. That aside, it won't work. That's what the activation takes care of. Adobe knows what you are doing, even more so after your required platform swap which will simply invalidate your Windows serials. Don't ever assume otehrwise. You agreed to all that when you accepted the EULA.
Thanks for the reply Mylenium, even if it was a little condescending . I understand now.
Sorry if I seemed like I was trying to get away with murder, like I said I am new to all this. I wasn't in any way trying to cheat Adobe, I just was unsure of my options.
