Default New computer ... plug-in update questions


I've spent most of the day setting up a new Mac. My old machine was running PT 6.1/OS 10.2.8.

I've got OS 10.3.2 on the new machine. I've downloaded and installed PT 6.3.2, launched the program a few times to see that it's working. I have an ilok account, current ilok software ... As I began to download plug-in updates for the new machine, I came across the following info from the Digi site:

"For Pro Tools 6.2.3 TDM & LE

For Mac OS X 10.3.2

Important Information About Pro Tools 6.2.3 Plug-In Updates
In order to greatly reduce the size of the web downloads, these optional plug-ins are NOT INCLUDED with the Pro Tools 6.2.3 downloads. All Digidesign and Digi-distributed plug-ins must be updated in order to work with Pro Tools 6.2.3 and Mac OS X 10.3.2 (Panther)

After running the Pro Tools 6.2.3 LE or TDM web update, you must download updates for any of these plug-ins that you own and install them after installing Pro Tools BEFORE launching Pro Tools. Otherwise an error and possible crash will occur on Pro Tools launch:"

How should I proceed? I have downloaded the plug-in updates, but I haven't installed them yet. Do I need to un-install PT so that the updated plugs are installed before PT 6.2.3 is launched for the "first" time, or will the "uninstall" option from the 6.2.3 web installer [followed by a re-install] only create other troubles?

Please advise, and thank you,
