Default Should I uninstall PT8 before Installing PT9...?

I'm getting ready to install PT9 HD.
Should I uninstall 8 first?

I couldn't Find any docs on this.

Thanks,
Guy

Always.

Even safer would be a fresh OS install, first.

This is assuming you have a full installer of PT9 If you only have the updater then you must have a previous version installed in order to upgrade. If you purchased online, you should have both the full installer and the updater, so obviously use the full installer and as DISM said uninstall the previous version.

Can I just use the PT9.02 upgrade from PT8.04?

Hi,

NO, you must have PT9 or PT 9.0.1 installed first before using the 9.0.2 update.

only pt9 and pt 9.0.1 are available as full installers at the moment.

I would also trash all prefs first.
