Hi, I've only used Power director 16 ultimate for a year. I see some features in 17 ultimate I would like. If I update, what do I do with PD 16? Do I de-install? What happens to projects that I am working on in 16 if I change to 17? This is new for me and I'd appreciate a walk through. Do you recommend I get a back-up disk also?

I see on the 17 forum that there have been produce issues and now there is a patch. Will I get the newest version if I order? Or will I have to get a patch.

Many thanks for assistance. I tried to search for this topic with no success. Sorry if it has been posted before.

Thank you

If you have the permanent installed versions of PD they can coexist. Many of us have multiple versions on the same PC.
This requires full installations not upgraded.
PD projects are forward compatible not backwards.
You can buy the disc or download files but keep them copy them and save the email receipt.
