Ableton Live upgrade from Suite 9 to 10


Just wondering if upgrading from Live 9.5 Suite to the latest 10.0.4 Suite is safe and stable for what is currently a smooth operating offline Win 7 64 dedicated DAW system? From what I understand I can install 10 and keep 9 on my system, but wondering how to keep them separate and organized (tips?) and if there are any settings or tweaks I should need to make - or is it all a pretty simple, quick and painless install?

They can live side by side without issues.

Thanks for the reply and link. So I guess I will keep Live 9 installed as is and do the side by side install in case they share resources or whatever. I am assuming there are no major bugs or any other issues with Live 10 now that it has been out for a while? No important tips or tweaks other than basic customization for my specific uses?

You can relay on VirtualBox

As from my experience Live 10 works perfectly.
But if you want just to open a previously made project (if for a reason it won't work in Live 10) - you can just install Live 9 on a virtual machine using VirtualBox or VMWare, do everything you need on it - export the project and open it in Live 10 on your main system.
