Updating from Kontakt 5 to 7 while migrating from Intel to Silicon
I've been using Kontakt 5 on a 2014 iMac for a long time now, but have recently purchased a 2023 Mac Studio running Ventura on Silicon.
I want to update my version of Kontakt to 7, installed on the new machine.
Question I have is - do I need to install Kontakt 5 on my new Mac Studio before I can update? I'm a little concerned it won't be recognised by the OS.
Is it possible to perform the update without installing the old version?
Kontakt 7 won't replace K5 as an upgrade, so all your exisiting projects will still require K5 and its library. After purchasing Kontakt 7 upgrade you will then have two versions in your account.
So install 5 and transfer your exisiting KFL with all your modifications to the new PC, or download it.0
But can I install 5 on a Silicon Mac? I have an installation CD in front of me here that dates back to 2014.
If I purchase the Kontakt 7 update0
OK for anyone else going through this - Yes, you HAVE to install Kontakt 5 and activate it first on your Silicon M1 Chip Mac. Then install Kontakt 7. It won't run without 5 being installed first. If you want anything doing...0
Okeedokee... that's news to me.1
