    Not sure whether a jump from 5 to version 9 provides backward compatibility that far down the path. If you hesitate spending a penny download the trial version first and see whether you get your version 5 projects open and playing in Ableton 9. If worse comes to worse you have to do this incrementally, i.e. install version 7 (should be possible to jump over at least one version), import and save all projects in version 7, then upgrade to version 9. Surely, it is tedious and the one or other project might get 'screwed' in the process but at least you do not loose everything.

    cheers tom49. I am upgrading my old XP laptop so until I get my new system (prob with Windows 8) I am not going to be able to test the compaability. I like your idea of putting the projects through the various versions...... so much better than loosing everything....100's of tracks in progress from the past 10 years :-)
