Does CS6 override or uninstall CS5?
CS6 installs into its own folder so you can have CS5 and CS6 co-existing happily on your computer and use both (but not at the same time).
And is it possible to have both CS5 and CS6 on the same computer at the same time?
Yes, just don't try to run them at the same time.
I have CS4, CS5 and CS6 all installed so I can run whichever version I want to when I want to.
Thank you for your quick response.

I can (and sometimes do) run multiple versions of Photoshop on my Mac. You just have to launch the older version(s) first.
EDIT: As a precaution, I assign different drives as scratch disks for each version that is running.

Good to hear it works on Mac. I've never needed to.
Yup; it's far from being an everyday need.
Were you able to find the upgrade version on Amazon?
You may have trouble if you bought CS6 as an upgrade as this is not an upgrade from CS5 extended. But then you are moving down from extended to non-extended so not sure how that works.
No. I just bought the CS5 non-extended version. If I want to use 3D I'll just go back to CS5.
