Update question (please read)

Post by Thomas Schreiber » Fri Jan 16, 2004 1:49 pm


I just purchased Live 3.X. I installed version 3.01 first. Now I can see there's a 3.02 version available. Fine. I downloaded the 3.02 version, and installed it. Now in my ableton folder I've got a 3.01 folder and a 3.02 folder. I've uninstalled the 3.01 version, but there's still some folders in the old 3.01 folder - Prefs', unlock and VST plugins. If I delete these folders, my plugs will go in the trash, and I can imagine I have to "re-unlock" Live again.

What am I supposed to do when I update? Leave all the old version, or uninstall them or something third???

Thank you in advance

the old versions of live stay on your computer and are still functional - they're basically a completely different program. i like to keep them there, at least for a while, in case there's some problem with the new version. you can move your vst's to another folder, or set the new version to use the old vst folder
