Uninstall both PR and PS and related programs. Then install Production Premium.

The reason to uninstall your standalone apps is so that Dynamic Link will work more or less correctly.
I called Adobe and asked the same question. The person I spoke said it didn't make a difference what I did.
I could install all in the suite. Installing PS and PP again, on top of what's been installed.
Or I could install everything but PS and PP.
Or I could uninstall PS and PP and install all of CS Production Premium.
It didn't matter.
I pointed out that I had installed PP via download and this was a disc install. I also pointed out that when I had upgraded PP from CS5.5 to CS184.108.40.206 I had to pick the downloaded SW install, not the disc install in order to properly upgrade PP. The tech support person never heard of such a thing. Once again, it didn't matter.
Well, I decided to take your (Harm's) suggestion and I uninstalled PS and PP and then installed the entire suite.
I had a feeling there was (probably more than one) good reasons to follow Harm's suggestion.
You managed to figure out the main difficulties you were facing.
1. You had the single products and dynamic link only works within Suites.
2. You had the download versions and the Suite is a physical DVD version. There are different installers for each.
So, although I did not mention it explicitly, those were the reasons for my advise. Congrates on figuring out my reasoning.
The Suite is also available via download. Buy and upgrade through Toolfarm, not Adobe. You get a discount, and they don't collect sales tax.
Yeah, but the OP has the physical product, so your remark is irrelevant here.
