No. They coexist just fine.
Thanks. As I had thought. Then I'll go with a complete uninstall and clean-up before installing CS3.
Once caveat is that projects, once saved in CS3, can't be opened in 2.0 any more. And not all projects will transfer perfectly, so it would be smart to finish what you started in 2.0, and only do new projects in CS3.
I second Jim's advice with the added reason that many effects and 3rd party plug-ins are either no longer available or are not compatible with CS3. So leave version 2.0 installed for a while.
Wise words, guys, thanks. Sounds like a plan.
Odd, isn't it, that Adobe don't address this issue at all in any of their literature. Surely it's a concern that many people will have at upgrade time.
Since I started with PP2 and have yet to upgrade this app., I have not faced this one yet, but with Photoshop, I always keep the old version on the machine, until I am comfortable doing quick work with the new one. Also, I still have PS ver. 4 on one machine for a single client, who needs a special output and ver. 4 was the last to do what she needs, exactly as she needs it. It's far easier to leave a previous installation on the machine, until everything is working well and one learns the new version completely, rather than doing a reinstall, when things go south in a Project with a deadline looming.
