From CS2 32-bit to CS5.5 64-bit

I have CS2 Design Standard installed on my old WinXP 32-bit.

Now I've got a new PC with Win7 64-bit and I want to buy the upgrade to CS5.5.

 

So my questions are:

1. Can I upgrade a 32-bit suite (CS2) to a 64-bit suite (CS5.5)?

2. If so, do I need to first install my old CS2 on the new PC and then run the CS5.5 upgrade?

    I'm not sure what the upgrade price would be, but you can easily check it out at the Adobe store (link above). You do not need to install CS2, the CS5.5 installer will ask for your old serial number when installing.

    You don't have to keep CS2 installed on your computer, you will use the serial number to install CS5.5.

     

    You can upgrade to CS5.5 (still), soon you won't be able to, so do it quick:

     

    New Adobe upgrades policy

     

    Go to Adobe store and get an upgrade, price below:

    There is no 64-bit or 32-bit suite, some of adobe applications run in both (Photoshop comes in both 32-bit and 64-bit), some are 64-bit only (Premiere Pro), so you just purchase Creative Suite and when you install it, you can install both versions of Photoshop (if you run 64-bit OS).

     

    I hope this helps.

    Yes, but don't you think it would be really weird if you couldn't?

    One additional point:  Based on currently published Adobe policy, you will NOT be able to get a discounted upgrade to Photoshop CS6 from anything prior to CS5.  This represents a recent change.

     

    So don't expect to be able to upgrade your CS5.5 directly to CS7.  They really want you to buy every major version from now on.

    And Adobe won't sell you an earlier version upgrade.

     

    So the new policy makes the comment   "Yes, but don't you think it would be really weird if you couldn't?"  unweird
