I could swear I saw this question answered here when VEPro 7 dropped but can't seem to find it again so forgive the repeat. I know VEPro 6 and 7 can't exist on the same computer. On my daw I have a dual-boot system with OSX 10.10.5 on one partition and OSX 10.13.6 on the other. I have VEPro 6 on both partitions; my preferred working partition is the High Sierra one where I work in Pro Tools 2019.6.

To keep compatibility with older stuff I've worked on I need to keep PT 11.3.2 and that means keeping OSX 10.10.5 PT 11.3.2 and PT 2019.6 can't exist on the same partition. So I would keep VEPro 6 on that partition. I also have several 32 bit only plugins that I run in that partition.

Everything else I do in High Sierra and PT 2019.6 and I can run VEPro 7 there replacing VEPro 6 and being able to take advantage of the new stuff in VEpro 7.

The question becomes: can I have license assets for VEPro 6 and 7 on the same Vienna key? Or would I have to have them on separate Vienna keys? I have two Vienna keys from when I ran a two computer system (now down to just 1 computer). Sad part is I did try VEPro 7 when it came out but can't remember what went on with the license assets on the dongle.

HI Jack, 

Not sure if that is the right answer, but VE Pro 7 licenses also work with VE Pro 6. 

Best,

Thank you Paul for the answer. I thought I had read this somewheres but when I went to find it again I couldn't. This old brain gets foggy when one's been around 7 decades and counting.

I'm trying to future-proof as much as I can. With all the worry about Catalina (I'm on a Mac) and even though I'm not planning on getting a new computer one never knows and I'm trying to get ahead of the game as it were.

Hi Jack, 

Just getting ready for Catalina here...  But you're right, better safe than sorry!

Best,
