Windows 7 -> 10 change a problem?

Postby Andrew » Tue Nov 28, 2017 7:04 am

I have an Advanced Edition license and have used it for a number of years on a laptop with Windows 7. If I update to Windows 10 will this affect my current license USB? Are there any other updates I should do?
Thanks for your help....

Hello Andrew,

[Topic moved here.]

Licences are stored within the Hauptwerk USB key and they aren't computer-specific, or platform-specific, so you can use the key on any computer, and on any supported platform (including Windows 10), with no licence updates needed.

Please just make sure that you have the latest version of Hauptwerk (v4.2.1) installed, and install the latest driver for the Hauptwerk USB key. Both are available on our main downloads page:

Also make sure that you have the latest Windows 10-compatible drivers installed for your audio/MIDI interface(s), and any other hardware that you might have, checking on their respective manufacturers' websites.
Best regards,

[Please use email or the Contact page if you need to contact us privately, rather than private forum messages.]
