Best way to upgrade w/o losing settings

Hi Gang,

Can anyone recommend the best way to upgrade with minimal settings lose, or even if there is such a thing? Going from Cubase 7 to 8, should I install in the same folder as 7 or use a new folder for 8? I Love Cubase but it gets to be a pain having to relocate your Key Commands, 3rd party Settings, VST, Input/Output, ect, folders every time you upgrade. If Microsoft has long since conquered this issue, why can’t Steinberg?

Thanks for any help, mike

They will install in seperarate folders, operate as independent programs, and keep their own preferences and settings, etc.

If C7 is already installed, C8 will import its settings first time it is run.
