AA3.0 can be installed alongside other Adobe apps including Premiere Pro and even Audition CS5.5 without causing any conflicts or problems.
Now, a couple of "buts".
AA3.0 doesn't support the clever integration with Premiere Pro so you won't have the clever round trip processing that's included in Audition CS5.5. Only you can know if this is important to you.
Second, AA3.0 was written before Windows 7 64 bit existed. Many users have installed it onto Win7 64 with no problems at all but a number of others have reported glitches and issues with things like CD writing (reported a number of times) and a variety of other things. I'm no expert but have to suspect any issues are likely to do with drivers for other devices and therefore luck of the draw depending on the hardware you have. The only way to know for sure is to try it.

Certainly all versions of Audition can co-exist quite happily on the same machine - so it follows that if CS5.5 is installed, even without its version of Audition, that AA3.0.1 would also run fine alongside it. All versions create their own specific system setting files in different directories, which is why this has never been an issue - it's sort of planned for, in fact.
Hi Bob & Steve,
Thanks for replying. I am not primarily concerned with CD burning & I can certainly
wait for Audition CS6 to taste the smooth workflow integration between PPro & Aud.
Yes, even I have read about how Audition 3 works alright for many with Win-7 64-bit systems,
but others have also reported how it crashes/freezes &/or hogs memory/CPU.
But if, as you say, I can readily install Audition 3 with CS5.5 apps including Audition CS5.5,
it is indeed good news. Relieved to know it wont mess up Registry or screw each others
In short, I can have Audition-3 & CS5.5 on W7-x64 & if Aud-3 fails, I can simply uninstall it,
right? No harm done?
I have several versions of Audition working happily on the laptop I'm typing this message on.
I've even had more than one open at the same time--not a procedure to be recommended but even that worked.
Thanks Bob. Shall give it a try now.
