We have had a lot of excited customers who recently purchased the Inspiration Studio Pro software. I love hearing from all of you and how you are excited about all the abilities you have with the Inspiration Studio Pro software. When you get ready to install your Inspiration Studio Pro software for the first time, you might find yourself wondering this same question that Betty asked.
I recently purchased the Inspiration Studio Pro software for the rhinestone feature and wanted to know if I needed to uninstall the original version of software that came with my machine before installing the Pro version?

It is not necessary to do an uninstall of the original version of software before installing the Pro since the Pro version will actually install over top of the original Inspiration Studio software. Please note that you will want to make sure you’ve backed up all of your files from the Image Gallery ( or the blue blook as many people call it) in the software before installing the Pro software.. That way you don’t risk losing anything that you’ve created and saved in the Image Gallery. I have recommended in the past to do a complete uninstall/reinstall to ensure that everything was completely removed before installing the Pro software, but this isn’t necessary for every case. For most people you can simply run the new install and be on your way to creating new rhinestone designs. However if you are having a problem with the installation process I would recommend doing a search on your computer to remove all traces of the Inspiration Studio software and then install the Pro version. Once you receive your new software you should be able to insert the disk right in to your CD drive, install it and be creating beautiful rhinestone templates before you know it.
