Do I need to uninstall an older Nero version before I install a new Nero product version – may I uninstall the old Nero version after I installed the new one?

Nero products work side by side, meaning that you can install a latest version and leave a former version installed on the same system.

Both versions will be working on the same system. We recommend always using the latest product version with the latest feature set.*

You can uninstall the former product version if you like. Check the table below for version references.

If you are using Windows® 10 operating system, please be aware that Nero products must be uninstalled via ‘Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features’. For more details check Nero KnowHow 00008.

In the case of Nero MediaHome, please be aware that with installing the latest product, the media library of your older product version will be transferred to the latest Nero product version. This way the latest version of Nero MediaHome will automatically have all your media, configurations, slideshows, tags, etc. available in the known manner within the framework of the new feature set of the latest Nero product version.

Due to the fact that only one Nero media library can exist on one system, Nero MediaHome will be disabled in your older Nero product version.
