ISE 12.1 - How do I upgrade from one edition to another?


I just purchased a new ISE Edition and the new edition contains more products then the previous version. How can I upgrade from to the new edition?


If your install is missing a product that you have purchase, you can update your current install area to contain the new product by using the following steps:

-Launch either install that includes the edition you are looking for
-Continue through the installer until you are asked to "Select Edition to Install"; select the edition you would like to install.
-Click next, "Select Destination Directory" and pick the same location where your old edition is installed.
-Do not select any of the Installation options as you have already installed these.
-Complete the install.
-You will now be able to access all products from your old installation area.
