i've given my old version of 9 to a friends son - he's shows great promise - and since he lives in another state (not a drugged one thankfully) i like to install 9 back on my system so i can do walk throughs with him.

can i safely install an OLDER version AFTER having installed the latest?

Sure. I want to say that 11 was the last version to do a major install/setup change, so you might need to reinstall some plugins or point some Vegas folders to where the plugins are. But, I've (at one time, installed older versions with newer on there & nothing overlaps any more (I think it was 7, 8 or 9 where all plugins were in a shared folder vs separate folders, and I think 11 or 12 where some default folders for plugin searching was changed).

Should be no problem. I've got V9, V10, V12, and V13 installed on my editing machine.

thanks guys...

wwaag - i too had something similar, BUT later version were always added AFTER, not whilst a newer version was installed.

Only thing to worry about i can think of is that the older version will steal the .veg file type association so that clicking a .veg file will launch that version instead of 13. Pretty easy to change it back though.

No. I added V10 32 bit to get a plugin to work and V9 to try and smart render AVCHD files after V12 and V13. No problems.

No prob, I've install older version after more recent ones, and no issues at all.

Within the last 2 years, I reinstalled VP9 allowing me to use SONY CineScore, and that would have been well after VP12 and VP13.

Ah Grazie - I'd almost forgotten about Cinescore - I still have it plus several "modules" or whatever they were called - a clever idea which never really caught on.

I'm capable of creating original music, but for almost all video projects, it takes far too long for the budget, so things like Cinescore were sometimes very handy.

I liked Cinescore too but never got an official reason why it was discontinued.

Probably a lack of market penetration compared to SmartSound, the big gorilla in that field.

The rumor i've seen posted (and mind you, it's just a rumor) is that it was too close a product to a some other software and may have been stepping on some intellectual property toes. Rather than face huge battles, it was quietly pulled instead.

There were also mentions that it would be replaced with something far better, but so far that hasn't come about.
