Help about Upgrading Elements 8 to 9

There is an option to update to elements 9 from elements.
So I clicked it and paid for it.
I have a registered elements 8. Just wanted to upgrade to 9.

Have I made a mistake? Or was this the proper way to upgrade to 9?

Hi and welcome.

This was the proper ways, how to upgrade to the current Cubase Elements 9.5. I expect your Cubase Elements 8 was activated in the past already. If not, you don’t need to upgrade, you would get Cubase Elements 9.5 license for free (thanks to the Grace Period politics).
