  1. I installed CS6 beta and cannot install add-on programs or plugins to the beta. Is this normal, or is there a problem with my install? I installed it on a new Dell 620 running Win7 64-bit. I have 8GB Ram with a 1TB HD.

    • Hey there Randy, thank you for your question and interest. The only free upgrades to CS6 are for those who purchased CS5.5 during the recent grace period

      We do expect that Adobe will refresh the Acrobat X Suite soon with the recent releases of Photoshop CS6 and Captivate 5.5, but it would be a paid upgrade from what you have.

  2. Why aren’t you offering the free upgrade to CS6 for those who bought CS5.5 before the March 26, 2012 date? In a way, aren’t you penalizing those loyal users who decided to purchase CS5.5 when it first came out?

    • Hello Rich, thank you for your thoughts. No, because the folks who bought CS5.5 when it first came out got to use it for a year before CS6 arrived, whereas buyers in April very quickly had the old version… Also if Adobe offers free upgrades to all purchasers of a previous product then they would never be able to finance actually creating new releases or features – the company’s income has to come from somewhere.

      One thing we’ve learned after being an Adobe Partner for 5+ years is that it’s never possible to manage dates on special offers so that everyone is perfectly happy… No matter what period the company chooses, by definition there will always be someone just before or just after. So pleasing everyone all the time is unfortunately not possible – but if you’d like to share your feedback or experience with them directly, here’s their Customer Contact page.

      Going forward feel free to stay tuned here (see the “Subscribe” box at the upper right), as we always try to give early word and estimates on upcoming major releases, and have been posting on CS6 timeframes since last summer. Forecasting these timeframes from public information we pick up helps many of our readers with managing their purchases and upgrades.

  3. Does the new CS6 release have the same features that were included in the ‘Beta release’? I am particularly interested in the 3D that was included. Thank you.

    I agree with Rich, we ARE being penalized. When I bought CS5.5 it was because it stated on the site that CS6 would NOT be available for a few years and CS5.5 was a major upgrade. This was FALSE advertising. I have been been using the suite since it was Macromedia, long before Adobe did the buy out. I purchase it for home use and SEVERAL copies for the 2 places I have worked over the last 12+ years. NOT happy about the FALSE information that swayed me into purchased CS5.5 early. If it had been stated CS6 would be out within a year, I definitely would have waited! Shame on Adobe!

    I agree with you! TOTALLY wrong. They stated there would not be an upgrade for YEARS, which is why I upgraded to CS5.5, I call that false advertising!

    • Hello Gail, thank you for sharing your thoughts. However we’re pretty sure that at no place and at no time did Adobe ever state or advertise that CS6 wouldn’t be available for years… In fact, on this very blog last summer we posted that CS6 would be out in the spring of 2012, which it was.

      But if nevertheless you feel you were compelled to upgrade to CS5.5 for reasons beyond your control, there are options you can explore.
