Reinstall Sibelius Ultimate

Post by JulianC » Mon Dec 30, 2019 3:17 am

In the New Year I will need to reinstall Sibelius after upgrading my system to Windows 10.

Do i need to reregister Sibelius beforehand? I am using Sibelius 2019.5

Just remember to deregister your copy before you upgrade so that you don't run out of 'seats'.

Not sure Sib 5 will run on W10 without using Compatibility Mode.
There has been some discussion about installing older software on W10. Some folks suggest installing some older software as the higher Administrator than the admin account you setup. Yes, the account you create in W10 is an Admin account, But there is a higher one. Right clic the install exe. and select"Run as administrator".
Can't hurt.
Yes, deactivate Sib on your old machine first. It may take a few tries to activate on your new system. Give it a few minutes.

Hi Bob,

I think the OP's post meant 2019.5 There was no such thing as 5.2019.

Hey Mike, You're probably right. I remembered that my Sibelius 5 disk says v 5.2.

You're right I should have written Sibelius 2019.5 for the version number.
