Can Studio 9 and 22 Co-exist?

    Can Studio 9 and 22 Co-exist?

    Given that Studio 9 .stu files cannot be read by v22, is it possible to have both versions installed on Windows 10? 

    I have many version 9 projects (quite complex with dozens of cuts on numerous clips and numerous transitions and titles) I don't want to have to convert to 22.  But now I have a reason to generate another disc from a Studio 9 project with some minor changes.

    What would happen if I tried to install version 9? 

    Would it matter if I did it under the same Windows user, or should I do it under a different user?

    Thanks for any advice.

    Installing PS9 on Win 10 is impossible.

    I wouldn't expect Studio 9 to install on W10.    

    If it did work, I would also recommend installing Studio 12 or so, first opening each project there and re-saving in that format.  But I don't know if the edits in the Studio 9 projects will survive that twice-converted trip.  

    Good luck!

    Thanks.  I was afraid of that.

    Would you happen to know if I could partition a Dell computer to install Windows XP on the 2nd partition?

    With the right tool, it's possible.

    If your computer's CPU supports virtualisation (most "Core i" CPUs do - although might need turning on in the BIOS), and you're comfortable with virtual machines, an alternative to re-partitioning would be to use third-party software such as VirtualBox, or what's available in Windows 10 Pro and above to create a virtual machine and install the copy of Windows XP on it.

    A while back I used VMLite Workstation (a cut-down version of VirtualBox) and an installation of Windows XP Pro in order to run some ancient (16-bit) software; I did try Studio 9 on that virtual machine and it did run well enough, even with the emulated graphics, to be able to open a project and inspect it (video playback was a bit temperamental...). The beauty of the virtual machine was that I could have the later version of Studio running under Windows 10 open at the same time; although there's no way to directly move stuff between projects I could at least easily flip between the two and manually build a new project that "looked the same" as the old Studio 9 one.

    FWIW I've always found using a newer version of Studio to import the older version's projects very "hit & miss" - and as mentioned previously you'd need to do it in 2 steps to get from Studio 9 to any recent version (Avid Studio and newer)
