I just discovered the hard way that you cannot upgrade from a CS3 (or presumbly any earlier version) Suite to a single product. Thus the Illustrator upgrade to CS4, which is all we really need, needs to be from a standalone Illustrator, not part of a Suite. Suites only upgrade to Suites (though you can bounce around to different flavors of Suite all you want).

This is very silly, if you ask me. Not to mention annoying. And it has cost us 4 people-days of work.

I assume that is one of the reasons why suites are cheaper per product. They want you to upgrade the entire suite.

For my part I only have single product licenses (for Illy, Photoshop, Acrobat InDesign and Flash). Everybody told that was more expensive. But I felt that by having single products I could do exactly what you are trying to do, upgrade only one product at MY convenience and according to my budget.
