Fresh installation of Cubase 8.5

Hi all.

I will format my computer next week and I would like to do a fresh installation of Cubase 8.5 on my system.
So to have all content from version 8, should I install Cubase 8 first and then install Cubase 8.5 update on the top?

Does 8.5 work well with Windows 7? Seem like Steinberg don’t support Windows 7 for Cubase 8.5 (W8 or W10 only)

Recommendation welcome.



You don’t need to install Cubase 8.

Yes, just download the complete instaler for Cubase 8.5 in your Steinberg account.

Windows 7 is still supported by Steinberg.

Thank you all .
