I'm pretty sure that you will need to contact Adobe support. I had a similar issue when I discontinued my CC license a while back. My CS6 stopped working because the CC had converted my activated perpetual CS6 license to a subscription without asking me to. It took several re-installations and hours of oversees tech support to get it working. It was a major pain. If I remember correctly, the tech support person had to login and run a special program to release the "subscription" from CS6.
It looks like I don't have any previous versions of Photoshop on my
computer. The folders for the previous versions exist, but they are empty.
The Creative cloud application does not show Photoshop under the previous
versions tab. Is it still possible to rollback version 2014?
Yes, just install one of them as shown in my previous screen shot.
Chuck, do you know what happens to the perpetual license in this case when it gets converted to a CC activation? I had one computer that I cancelled CC on and it would not allow my CS6 perpetual license to run at all, even after re-installing using the original DVD. I had to work with Adobe support for a week to fix it.
I have another computer that had a CS6 perpetual license but it got swallowed up by the CC license as well. It does this automatically when CC is installed. It just converts the installed CS6 perpetual license to a subscription without telling you or asking you. I can't deactivate the original CS6 perpetual license. It allows me to sign out from CS6 which also signs out from CC. This is an old computer and I want to both sign out of CC AND deactivate CS6 license. I don't want the CS6 license to be using one of it's 2 activations on a computer that isn't being used.
Basically, will the CS6 license still have 1 activation being used up because it doesn't allow me to deactivate this? Last time around, I could not get a very clear answer to this when I talked to support. They only have online chat support for perpetual licenses now. There is no phone support for perpetual licenses anymore which is a bit frustrating.
I don't know that. I've also got a perpetual CS6 license, and I made sure I didn't remove all my old programs. Frankly, even though it's on my computer, it might have been converted to subscription also. Sounds like Adobe needs better license management in their software. I'm assuming that they think that if you subscribe, you won't be using CS6, so they didn't really bother writing code to make use your perpetual license stays perpetual. One of these days, I might run into this issue, but for now, I'm being very careful not to uninstall it.
I have the same problem with CS6. Up to Photoshop CC 2014 both CS6 and CC
2014 were available. I have some older plugins which don't work on CC 2014
so I used CS6 for these. I want in other words to use both CS6 and CC 2014
versions of Photoshop. After I installed CC 2015 both my CS6 AND my CS6
plugins were erased.
If I now reinstall the CS6, will it disappear again when I manage to
rollback my Photoshop CC 2014?
I haven't been able to reinstall the CC 2014 because I can see just one
Photoshop icon in the CC control window. and with this I can only open
Photoshop. My CC window looks like this:
As I understand it, there should be a Ps icon under the versions tab as
well with which I would be able to reinstall CC 2014. Are there any other
ways to reinstall CC 2014?
I have hundreds of images that I should process with my script but
currently I am unable to do it.
I can't see the idea behind disabling my perpetual CS6 licence which I
have paid for. Why this change of policy now?
I found out that the Ps CC 2015 COM interface does not export all Com
objects, just a small subset. In all previous Ps versions from CS6 to CC
2014 my python scripts have worked without any problems.
My script is a fairly complicated one with a graphical interface so I am
very reluctant to rewrite it in JS or Visual Basic.
I hope a working solution to my problem can be found.

Yes, you can reinstall CS6 and CC2015. I just did that, as I too needed to use CS6 scriptlistener to write a script I need. I uninstalled all my PS apps on my second laptop. I installed CS6 first, then 2015. I did have a hard time finding 2015, after I had uninstalled it, but it was there if you close find previous apps and then select find all apps.
it's unrelated to your original question I know, but how do you use Python for scripting PS? Sounds interesting - do you use it just for building a UI, interacting with the OS, or PS?
Python is the programming language I am most familiar with. The UI is for
me just an extra bonus. I write all my script for PS in Python. You can
google for python and photoshop to find more information.
I am currently totally lost because I can't write scripts for Ps 2015 in
Python. I haven't given up hope yet, however. I hope I will find a way to
use Python with PS. If I succeed, I will post the solution to this thread.
