Hi,

 

I have a licensed version of CS5. I'm thinking of trying Creative Cloud but want to retain the CS5 that I have installed on my PC. How can I prevent Creative Cloud from overiding CS5 during installation, i.e. not affect CS5? Is there a step that I need to take during the installation of Creative Cloud?

 

Basically, I want to have access to both CS5 and Creative at the same time, and in the event that I cancel Creative Cloud, be able to still use CS5.

 

Thanks in advance for any advice!

I would make a disk image or clone so that I could restore the disk to a time before installing CC.

Adding to what Peru Bob said...

As soon as you install any part of the Cloud, even a trial, it replaces your program management system
-if you plan to keep using a serial number program you should NOT install a Cloud program, not even a trial
-Read Cloud takes over https://community.adobe.com/t5/Get-Started/Get-off-the-cloud/td-p/8075485 for some ideas

 Thank you both for your replies.

I have an external drive. If I move the CS5 program over to it, will it still be affected by any Creative Cloud installation on my PC? Or can it remain isolated?
