Installing Different Major Versions of the Same Product (e.g. REAKTOR 5 and REAKTOR 6)
While a minor product update (e.g. REAKTOR 6.0.3 to REAKTOR 6.0.4) will automatically replace any older existing program version, different major versions like REAKTOR 5 and REAKTOR 6 can coexist on the same computer. They are treated as different programs and therefore do not depend on each other. This means you don't have to install REAKTOR 5 on your computer before you can install the REAKTOR 6 update and on the other hand the installation of the REAKTOR 6 update will not interfere with or change an existing REAKTOR 5 installation. This applies to all Native Instruments products.
Note: It is only possible to activate a major program update if an earlier version of the same program is already registered in the same user account.
If you update to a new major version (e.g. from REAKTOR 5 to REAKTOR 6) and want to keep the possibility to load sequencer projects that use the older plug-in version, you need to keep this older installation on your computer - older plugin versions within a sequencer project will NOT automatically be replaced by newer versions.
