Install 8.0.1 from the box. Install everything. Activate it. Then download and install 8.1.3. The first time you launch it, it will see that you have 8.0.1 installed and update everything in the library, including EIC, to the latest version,. Once you have successfully launched 8.1.3, you can uninstall 8.0.1. Doing so will not uninstall your library.

The main difference between the download & boxed version is the extra contents which the box provides (like the Essential Instrument Collection) and naturally the fact that you also got a license for these extra's.

So; best way to continue from here is to first grab the latest Suite from the Ableton download page. After you installed it simply add the livepacks from the CD's (eic2, session drums, etc.).

After that you'll end up with a full setup Suite.

In short; the CD's provide you with a basic version; then you can get extra updates from the Internet.

hello there. tnx for your answers. they are both right.

i installed the shelUser variant. but: on the installation dvd from 8.0.1 are the CYCLE74 loops. they are not installed. so i^ve installed this two loop packs. the rest in SUITE and the other flder (i dont remember the name) i was not able to install this. newer versions ared already installed.

now, im installing the DDVDs with the EIC packages.

tnx

the other way (first 8.0.1 from dvd then 8.1.3 i tried too. it works too, but its the longer way :)
