No need to uninstall .
When you get trial pop up , click on " License this Software " option and then Sign in and check.
Need little more details , like have you ever subscribed to Creative Cloud subscription using same Adobe ID and the subscription is expired ?
If , yes, when you get Sign in option , click on Have a different Adobe ID option and Sign in with different or new Adobe ID and check.
If this is not the case , if possible post screenshot of pop up which informs to Sign in to use Trial.
Did you tried Signing in and entering serial number? If not , try once.
If yes , if possible try Signing in with new Adobe ID or different existing Adobe ID.
This is just a confusion , coz CS 6 versions are also included among CC subscription bundle. You can try Signing in and entering serial number or with different Adobe ID.
For any other clarifications , you may check with Adobe Customer Support once :

Update: I tried signing in as suggested, and it immediately converted my CS6 to an extended trial without my permission. Then, I talked to tech support and they suggested uninstalling Creative Cloud, since that appears to be the problem. I tried. It won't let me, since "some programs" (my version of InDesign, I presume) require it.
The tech help also suggested uninstalling and re-stalling my PS disc...but said the problem will happen again with CC if I don't uninstall it.
So, can someone explain to me how I can get both of my products to play nicely together on the same computer again? I'm not interested in switching to a CC photoshop at the moment, since I have (had?) an already paid for, perfectly good working version of the program already.
Please confirm whether you had tried Signing in to Photoshop CS 6 using different Adobe ID ?
I only have one Adobe ID. My serial numbers are both registered to the same ID.
Photoshop only asked me to sign in the one time. The pop-up window is gone, and no longer asking me to sign in, since it upgraded when I signed in.
Are you suggesting I create a second ID not attached to any product number? And if so, where would I use it now that it is already running CS6 extended?

Even though CS 6 serial number is registered under one Adobe ID , no worries you can still use different Adobe ID to sign in to activate same serial number .
If the CS 6 app again prompts Sign in pop up , try signing using different Adobe ID. Create a new one and Sign in .
But for CC , it is mandatory to Sign in with Adobe ID using which you had purchased subscription .
