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

totem-creative-cloud-80x80Yes. 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.


Your Creative Cloud membership also includes access to CS6 apps. So if you ever need the CS6 version, head over to, sign in, and download a CS6 app. For instructions on how to install CS6 apps see: Install CS6 app with Creative Cloud.

    I have cs 6 and had cc 2015 but that disappeared when it was updated to cc 2015. Because of the oil filter i would like to have cc 2014 back as well. Is this possible ? Another problem is that the updates of cc 2015 dont work, error 49. Ive tried all solutions that were advised on the internet but its not updating.
    Can someone please help me?

    I’ve had CS6 Master Collection for a few years and a few back I purchased CC. I can’t afford CC anymore, but anytime I try to open any CS6 apps, the Application Manager asks me to renew my subscription. How do I use the CS6 apps that I already had?

    Assuming you’re still using Photoshop CS6 and that this message reaches you in time despite being three years later, installing any CC application, which will install Bridge CC, will break the functionality of Mini Bridge within Photoshop CS6.
