I stupidly never backed up the Acid pro 6.0b installer. Now that I've installed 6.0c and discovered a few bugs that didn't exist before (particularly the chopper issue discussed in another post), I want to roll back to 6.0b. I acknowledge that 6.0c has many improvements, but most are not relevant to me, while the chopper issue is. So, where can I download the 6.0b installer? And can I install that over 6.0c or do I need to completely uninstall first?

Help would be appreciated.

I used the System Restore to roll back to when Acid 6b was working pretty good. As usual, Sony takes 20 steps backwards for for what they think is a step forward. One would assume that what ever was working in a previous version would continue to work in the upgrade. You may have to go back a couple of restore points to find the resistry files in order.

The 6.0b file is still on the ftp site.

I don't believe it will install over a newer version. If I remember correctly the install aborts when you try this but it has been a long time since I've done it with any Sony or SoFo product.

FWIW I backup the folder that the installer extracts to. I'll usually burn a CD after new versions are released but may wait a week or two for other Sony programs to get point release updates. I also have a drive that is mostly archives and have the installer folder zipped there but it's only current versions.

Thanks for that FTP address! Even though I've already saved the installers for all versions of Acid Pro 6, I hate losing all the presets which is why I use the system restore. Getting the program and all the extra plug-ins back to where you like them can waste a lot of time.

stupid SMS took 6.0b off the FTP.

Luckily it seems like theres a torrent of it. I love pirating software I own because the developer released a new version full of more bugs than the old one. 6.0b was solid as a rock for me, I don't know why I thought C would improve anything.

Wow. I'm glad I sat out this "update". How could this pass beta test?
Hopefully "d" will improve. I just haven't been using Acid much lately, the lack of drag-drop between tracks abolutely kills my workflow. I've been having a much nicer time with Reaper, hopefully it will gain more Acid-like features soon.
