I am a licensed user of Nero 6 Ultra Edition. Over the past few days I've completely reformatted my hard drive and re-installed a fresh version of Windows XP - SP2. Now I'm beginning to reinstall all of my previous software which brings me to the installation of Nero and questions regarding that installation.

Since my system is completely free of any CD/DVD burning software (including Nero) I'm wondering which sequence of Nero installations would be best.

Should I install first the original version I purchased ( and then upgrade to

Or, can I simply begin with the installation of without installing any prior versions?

Since there seems to be some reported conflicts and possible stability issues with this latest upgrade, might it be best to first install an earlier verison such as

Now keep in mind that I'm no expert, but I would install the latest version from the get go. A few days I installed from scratch. I had version and I used the clean tool to remove all prior stuff and installed I installed, NeroMix, and NeroVision Express 3. So far, I have not experienced any problems. Good luck with the install.

Like ruderacer says...always go with the clean install :).....there is no benefit to upgrading over top of the version that you have...only possible headaches.

Thank you all for your quick response. I'm going to give a try. It makes the most sense since Nero Customer Support often suggests using the removal tool to remove prior versions when there are issues and conflicts.
