Upgrading ABBYY Lingvo

How do I upgrade ABBYY Lingvo?


How do I upgrade ABBYY Lingvo?

  1. You can only buy ABBYY Lingvo x5 as an upgrade if you have one of the two previous versions: ABBYY Lingvo 12 (English, European, Multilingual) or ABBYY Lingvo x3 (English, European, Multilingual).
  2. If you purchase a serial number as an upgrade, you will, as stated in the End-User Licence Agreement, lose the right to use the version from which you upgraded. So if, for example, you upgrade from ABBYY Lingvo x3 to Lingvo x5, you will no longer be able to use ABBYY Lingvo x3.
  3. The old version of ABBYY Lingvo will not be removed automatically once you upgrade to ABBYY Lingvo x5. You will have to uninstall it manually by opening the Control Panel from the Start menu and selecting the Add or Remove Programs (Programs and Features) item.
  4. All versions of ABBYY Lingvo are separate applications and function independently of each other. Installing another version of ABBYY Lingvo will in no way alter any versions you have installed.
  5. ABBYY Lingvo x5 Upgrade will request your serial number for the version you're upgrading from.
  6. If you want to upgrade Per Seat or Concurrent serial numbers, make sure you indicate that you do when making your purchase. Please note that since upgrade installations require users to provide their old serial number, upgrading a network installation isn't possible. Regular serial numbers for ABBYY Lingvo x5 will be provided instead (but at the same price as upgrade serial numbers).
