Can Ableton Standard and Suite exist together on the same computer?

Can Ableton Standard and Suite exist together on the same computer?

I've just bought a Suite License on ebay with the hope and expectation of selling my Standard License on the same marketplace. The reason being is that it looked to be better value than taking my usual upgrade route, at least with what I hope to get from selling Standard.

I've spent a few minutes trying to ask this question in the help section of Ableton to see what the procedure is regarding either keeping both versions installed on my computers until I sell Standard, or whether or not I need to uninstall Standard first for a clean install of Suite?

I couldn't find the answer

Does anybody know the best procedure and also if the packs that I currently have that aren't included in 10 Standard by default, but must have become freebie downloads over the years, are included with the Standard license that i'm going to sell on?

You clearly need just Suite activated. So activate Suite the usual way. You can't inactivate Standard anyway, so just toss it out and keep the Packs installed that you intend to keep.

Before you can sell your Standard license you need to move over any packs you might have gotten, not part of Standard or Suite, that you don't intend to include in the sale. itemize a list of these and ask Ableton to make sure those packs you want to keep belong to your Suite license.

Then you'll be ready for selling the Standard license.

Thank you Mikael.

I'm still waiting for the new license to be transferred by Ableton so that i'm able to download it, but sounds trouble free.
