Mixcraft 6 install file just downloads 7

Post by hellopeterduran » Tue Aug 30, 2016 11:23 am

Hi all: I haven't yet bought 7, though it may happen eventually. For the time being, 6 has been getting the job done and I like it.

Problem: my computer just died and I got a new one. But when I click to open my old install file for 6, all I get is an automatic download for 7. When I follow the install, it prompts me to try the trial version or buy. Note that I am not even connected to the Acoustica site when trying this.

I'm not sure why I cannot just install the product I already own and paid for? It doesn't seem like Acoustica to use this sort of coercion...?

Yep, I am a tech dummy, so please let me know if I am missing anything obvious here. Thanks -- Pete

HI,

You can download old versions of Mixcraft on its support page: Mixcraft Legacy Support.

When you're ready to upgrade, you can do that for cheap: Mixcraft upgrades.

I didn't think I had to download it since I already had the install file from before... but yea, that seemed to do the trick! :D

Thanks for your help, Greg.

Hi,

You had a "stem" installer, which is really just a downloader. I linked you to the full installer.
