I have installed in 2012 Photoshop CS6 on my PC with Nik Software plugs in. If I installed Photoshop and Lightroom CC on the same PC will one interfere with the other. Would my Nik Software Plugs in still work flawlessly?

You can have both installed. Just be careful installing CC, as it might remove CS6, I believe there is a check box during installation to prevent this - LOOK for it!

Hi, your Nik Collection will work perfectly also on your CC version. There is no reason to stick with the Cs6 in 2017 really.

All my best,
Martin

Adobe said you can, too:

 

Can I install both CS6 and CC apps on my computer?

 

Yes. Its fine to have both versions installed on your computer. A CS6 version can co-exist with a CC version without causing any trouble. Sometimes, you need both versions to be able to work with multiple clients and deliverables.

 

 

Although, if there ever comes a time where you wish to uninstall CC and run with CS6 only on the computer, then you might need to deactivate and reactivate CS6 in order to re-enable it after CC is uninstalled, and/or follow these instructions:
