I am on CS5.5 getting ready to upgrade to CS6.  I have upgraded several time and have remnants of older versions still hanging around.  Is there a recommened way to clean all the old stuff up and still have CS6 inherit my settings?

    Hi jwvaughn,


    You can use the creative suite cleaner tool to remove the older remnants of the software. SomeAdobe softwares inherit the settings / configurations from the older versions. If you remove the older version then the newer version of the software will have the default settings.

    The Cleaner tool is designed to work in conjunction with the uninstallers.  It was not designed to supplant them.  It is mainly useful for users which are experiencing difficulties with the uninstall process.
