From my point of view you should automatically provide licenses for all older versions upon HALion 6 purchase.
Since my purchase I’ve been caught in a trap and I cannot work. I’ve contacted support and I am still waiting for a license for HALion 5. VEP won’t replace H5 instances with H6. I need to go back and save every H5 preset one by one.
According to the update FAQ:
“They will provide you with a dedicated HALion 5 Add-On license that can be used in parallel to your HALion 6. It won’t be possible on the same system though, since HALion 6 replaces the HALion 5 application.”
I do need to use HALion 5 on the same system (temporarily at least).
So, will uninstalling HALion 6 allow me to use HALion 5 on the same system ?
The lack of this important information about this “vital” issue prior to the purchase is a big mistake in my opinion.
