Yes, it's possible to have a few versions of InDesign on the same computer (both Mac and Windows). I had CS2 and CS3 and they coexisted without any issues, but thenadays I had an older OS -- not SnowLeopard.
You have to install CS2 first and after that CS3. You can't install an older version over a newer one. Copying InDesign to Applications folder will not work -- even if it starts, it will not work correctly.
what shall i do?
- Uninstall all the versions of InDesign you have
- install the oldest you want -- e.g. CS2
- next install CS3, CS4 ... CC
Note that CS2 will certainly require Rosetta (as may CS3, Windows user here), and your original installers for CS2 will no longer work due to shutdown of the activatin servers. If you have a valid license for CS2 you can go to Adobe - CS2 Downloads for replacement installers.
CS3 was the first universal version so it doesn’t require rosetta.
How can i uninstall Indesign CS3 without corrupting any critical files that the rest of the CS3 suite will require?
Why do you need CS2?
I need CS2 so i can cooperate flawlessly with other users using it.
When CS3 exports to .inx, in order to be opened to CS2, those .inx files have are some issues.
- Transparent boxes appear on CS2 with a black stroke!
- Some files appear on CS2 with altered document size!
these are 2 issues i have encountered so far and im afraid to go further with .inx files because i might discover more and i dont want that when working professionally!
