How do I get ACR to have PV2012 set as the current process?

I just updated my Camera RAW to 6.8 which is the best for PS CS 5 and it updated the Process version to include 2012 but 2010 is still set as current so if I change the PV to 2012 I get an error that it wants me back in 2010. Can I change the settings to make the 2012 PV the current (and therefore default) process version?

You need to upgrade to PS CS6 and ACR 7.x to get PV2012 in PS.

ACR 6.7 is the highest version of the 6.x series, not 6.8, and the only reason it knows about PV2012 is because Lightroom 4 with PV2012 came out slightly before PS was updated to CS6, so Adobe added rendering support for ACR 6.7 to allow LR4 users to call up PV2012 photos in CS5.

The user-interface support for PV2012 in ACR 6.7 is minimal--you don't have access to most of the new toning sliders--so that is why the default is still PV2010 in ACR 6.7.

If you really do have ACR 6.8, where did you get it from?
