New versions of Adibe products are not dependent on previous versions but from my reading you do have some things to think about.
I have versions installed going back to the first CS when I get round to installing CS6 I'm going to have a clean out. I don't think there's anything critical for me there and 99% of the work saved for me is HTML/CSS. I guess you might need to think about any plugins or extensions you use.
Thanks very much for the reply.
I know that my upgrade to CS6 had to have the CS5.5 in place in order to verify the existence of a qualified product, so I left it there. Indeed there is an uninstaller for CS5.5 and one for CS6, so I guess I'll try running that first. That's the first step it seems anyway. Then it seems you have to run that cscleanertool if there are still issues.
I remember getting CS3 at the end of its life to qualify for an u/g to CS4. I'm pretty certain that I needed the old disc to do that. I've just done the same with CS5.5 and didn't need the old discs, just my Adobe ID.
The install of 5.5 threw up a shed load of reported errors although the main apps all seemed to work OK. I uninstalled CS4 and ran the clean-up tool and then went straight to a trial version of CS6. No problems at all.
I was happy to uninstall CS4 because I don't have any plugins or extensions and most of the files I save from anything I do in Adobe applications are standard files .php .htm .jpg .png apart from .ai from Illustrator.
Well, uninstalling CS5.5 completely disabled CS6.
I ran the uninstall for DW CS 5.5 and now when I click my CS6 icon it looks like it begins to start, but then stops and never starts.
I fixed this by going to the Adobe Store, signing-in, re-downloading the product, and re-installing.
