Multiple versions of PPro may be on the same computer (I think it was Adobe Employee Todd who said that)
Thank you John. Yes I read that, and the thread previous - not quite sure how that relates to an "Upgrade" or what it means in detail since surely CS4 becomes CS5.5 during the upgrade process?

You don't have to do anything whatsoever with your previous installations to install the upgrade. Upgrades are nothing more than a pricing discount; they differ in no way from the "full" verison of the software. They do not require that any previous version be present or not. You just need to be able to enter the serial number from the previous version when installing the upgrade version.
It is normal and expected that you will keep the old version on the same computer. I have CS3, CS4, CS5, and CS5.5 versions of applications on the same computers.
Thank you Todd
Wow!! I must say my installation experience of CS5.5 was nothing like CS4. It took just 45 minutes - no hassle and once I entered my Adobe ID it didn't even ask for the old serial numbers.
And now the best part. No more red line renders on my HDV timeline which was a real pain as I couldn't even play the timeline after I made adjustments. Now I get a playable yellow bar. This is going to save me hours of edit/render time.
What a difference...
And to Harm - yes, I don't regret.
