How to Find and Install Previous Version of Adobe Apps in CC 2015

With the exciting release of Adobe Creative Cloud 2015 this morning, users are buzzing about the new features in all of our applications. However, users that prefer to use old versions of Adobe Applications can download them easily from the Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop application.

 

Open your Creative Cloud Desktop Application. Mac users can find the app from their Applications folder or from their Apple Menu Bar; Window users can find their app in the task bar:

Once launched, scroll down to the “Find Additional Apps” navigation and click on the “All Apps” dropdown to find the selection labeled “Previous Versions.” Note – this is different from the “Previous Version” tab found directly above the “Find Additional Apps” tab.

Navigate to the app with the older version that you want to download, and click the “Install” Button. From there, you can pick any of the old versions of the application to install onto your computer. Note – this will not uninstall any of the new CC 2015 versions of the applications that you have downloaded. You can have multiple versions of one Creative Cloud application downloaded on your computer at the same time.

Creative Cloud Delivering More Choice for Installations

We’ve had our ear to the ground, and have heard you loud and clear about needing more choices around how you install applications and manage older versions.

Beginning with the next major release of the Creative Cloud desktop apps, it’ll be simpler than ever to update your apps to the latest versions. You will now have a choice when installing applications to have the install update to the latest version, and remove old versions, or to install the latest version, and keep old versions around (which you can uninstall on your own later). Based on your feedback, previous versions will be uninstalled by default, and all preferences and settings will be migrated to the new version.

Of course, you are in control, so if you want to keep the old versions around, or change whether settings are migrated to the new release, you will have the option to do so as part of the install process.

Advanced Options

To install the latest version without uninstalling the previous version:

  1. Within the Update Dialog Box, click the arrow to the right of Advanced Options to expose those settings
  2. Uncheck “Remove old versions”
  3. Click “Update”

It’s that simple. The choice is now yours.
