No as it wont work. The servers are geared only to fresh installations right now.

To protect you whilst uninstalling the old version enable Windows Firewall.

Not working.... I tried to install w/o uninstall the software = doesnt work at all Smiley Sad

My subscription is going to expire in 1[1/2] year. Does this mean that I can not download 09 version?

One more question, what are the differences in 08 versus 09 version? :cool:

The removal of old version works fine every where did you get a DMsetup file from the account?

If so what was its size?

there are , few differences mostly cosmetic and it does take lesser resources..

you can sure download and use 2009 products if its available for your server

I installed 2009 version from my account with no problems at all on 2 of my computers running windows xp home edition. It was a typical install and automatically uninstalled 2008 version. I am in Ohio and 2009 version downloaded perfect for me.

PS it even remembered all of my previous settings from 2008 version.
