Any ideas why LR and PS CS5 would think there are different versions of ACR installed?
Because that's how it works. Lightroom has ACR built into the software code, PS CS5 does not, and you have install a later version of ACR to have PS CS5 make use of the later version of ACR. So if you update CS5 to ACR 6.7, I believe your problems will be solved.
Thanks DJ, that works... at least, now I can open RAW images directly into ACR and then into PS.
Doesn't seem like they will open directly into ACR from LR though, but it does work from Bridge or Windows Explorer.
I guess i'll have to figure out the best way to adjust my workflow.
Just out of interest, is there any way to either stop LR/PS automatically saving the TIFF/PSD copy of the RAW files thats been opened (from LR into PS)? Or failing that, can the default location be changed at all? i.e. so instead of the TIFF/PSD file being created in the same folder location as the original RAW file (which means I then have to go back and move it once i've finished editing) can I specify a different folder/path?

As far as I know, the answer is NO

I object to the wording "have to". You choose to. It is a workflow decision that you make, and is in my opinion, completely unnecessary with Lightroom to have TIFF/PSD in folders separate from the RAWs. I see no benefit from this extra work. "Extra work" and "no benefit" are not words I like to hear together.

Are you saying that its not a limitation to have files saved to a pre-determined location and to a pre-determined format, even before one has started working on them and, potentially, made a decision about what they want the finished product to be?
No other applications that I use work in this way, though appreciate my experience may be limited.
