    v5 media composer to Symphony 6.5 up grade a few questions

    I have a few questions

    1. I am going to do the install on a fresh bootable partition I know I have to deactivate Verson 5 but do I have to uninstall it even though it is on another partition?

    2. If I decide 6.5 symphony is a bit unstable on my system, or I just don't like it' I install 5.5 Symphony?

    3. if the answer is no can I reactivate v5.

    1. No need to uninstall MC on that original partition.

    2. If you are on a dongle, your Symph 6.5 dongle MIGHT let you run 5.5 (not sure, it may very well be that the dongle would has to have been blessed for 5.5 at one time for that to work). But here's the thing: you want to go to 6.5.2 and you won't look back to 5.5. 6.5.2 is a solid release.
