You may have to wait a while to see if MAGIX makes the latest older versions available on their site.

At least they've promised that "older versions will be activate-able using the serial supplied when the product was purchased."

Most old versions are ATM still on

Except VP13 doesn't appear in that list....

vkmast wrote on 8/28/2016, 11:10 AM

True, most of the old versions are, even builds, except for the infamous v.11 (only the last build). Vs.12 and 13 are totally missing.

edit: Just tested and "Your (=my) downloadable software" download links still work on the SCS site My Account /My Orders (View order). If you bought the download version through SCS online store at the time, try it (but be quick!).

Nice find vkmast! Clarification here:

PeterDuke wrote on 8/29/2016, 6:41 PM

Why does the forum list page show "no answers" for this thread? (This is a question, so I don't expect the number of answers to increase :) ).

PeterDuke wrote on 8/29/2016, 6:43 PM

Nope. It now has one answer!

NickHope wrote on 8/29/2016, 9:04 PM

Maybe it refers to the number of comments posted since "the solution". Mine says 2 answers. I'll see if it says 3 answers after I post this. Edit: Indeed it does 🙂

I just tried vkmast's trick and Sony redirected me here. I guess the umbilical is irrevocalby cut. So now how do I get updates or downloads to install on a new machine?

vkmast wrote on 9/4/2016, 4:02 PM

Just tested the download link given in the thread and it still worked. I was logged on to as well.

vkmast: Thank you. I got to where it wants a machine ID. Won't the maching ID I get from my currently installed VP13 not work on my new machine? I thought that's what the Mach.ID was for--to prevent multiple-machine installs?

vkmast wrote on 9/4/2016, 5:54 PM

Widetrack, you need to try that. I really don't know as it's MAGIX now, not SCS any more.

Widetrack wrote on 9/4/2016, 5:55 PM

Got it! 453 is downloading right now. Thank you, sir.

Will the VP13 (453) download work withe the Magix 543 licence?   After my experience with VP14 I am treating Magix software with caution.   Currently still using VP12 but took the upgrade offer.

All builds of VP13 should work with a VP13 licence

They should and they do, alas with all the features not present in VP 14 removed. And since my original VP 13 was blastingly fast on mmy GTX 1080 before I installed VP 14, I'm considering...well, you guessed what...
