CS6 beta along side CS5

Mar 26, 2012 12:06 PM

Will there be any conflict to installing CS6 in Win 7 64 without uninstalling CS5? I've been trying it out on Win 8 but hit a snag (no drivers for certain HW) and I really don't wish to uninstall CS5.

    You are able to run Photoshop CS6 on the same drive as CS5. However, keep in mind that Windows 8 is not officially supported, so you may run into conflicts.

    You should be able to install both CS5 and CS6 on Win7. Please see the associations FAQ for details you may want to know first:

    I have the following phemnomena in Win 7 [up to date service pack]. When I am running PS6 and want to run PS5 at the same time to compare new versus old features - Windows does NOT allow PS5 to run - it just switches me to PS6. However, if I exit from PS6 and then start PS5 then PS5  boots up properly. This happens regardless if if I try to boot up CS5 32bit or CS5 64bit. Strange - anybody else seen this behavior

    This is standard in Windows. You will not be able to run two instances of CS.

    Try to run two instances of REGEDIT. Won't work.

    I run two or more instances of Calculator, Open Office, and all my 5 different test browsers in Windows Xp and Win 7 - this should not be an issue unless the program's developers make it ein Verboten Dingen. It just means getting comparisons means running two different machines together - a relatively small price to pay.

    You want to talk to Microsoft, the programmers of Regedit and Media Player. Ask them to learn programming.

     

    I'm running a virtual machine for CS6 beta.
