Was CS5 reinstalled after CS6?
Running windows 7.
No, CS5 was not reinstalled after CS6.
Couple things. If you double click on an AI file, which version of AI opens it? If CS5 is opening it, it may or may not be the file associations.
I believe Windows uses the last version of an application associated to a file extension. If CS5 opens a file that is double-clicked on, exit. Start CS6 and manually open an AI file. Now exit AI CS6 and try double-clicking on an AI file. Does it open in CS6? If so, it is likely the whole Windows thing.
If CS6 initially opens a double-clicked file and ID is not using it for the linked AI files...then I have no idea. At least without playing a bit, which will be a while later.
Take care, Mike
It was the file association thing. I changed that and now I am in business.
