re the upgrade path, I believe you can [CS9 does not actually upgrade your copy of CS6], but it would be best to confirm with TechSmith tech support

note that CS6 archived [zipped] projects will not open directly in CS9; if I recall correctly, they need to be opened/converted/zipped first in CS7, then CS8, before you can use the old projects in CS9

Hi Thanks I am not bothered about my older projects so that will be fine just want to make sure I can do it before I purchase because there doesn't seem to be any check screen before buying...So if I took the upgrade then it didn't work I am then left with a product that doesn't work!.

Thanks

installing CS9 is independent of installed older versions; they can exist side-by-side

Maybe I haven't made it my question clear.

Techsmith give two options at the purchase screen 
1. Full Version
2. Upgrade to version 9 from another version (which is half the price).

But they don't say which versions you can upgrade from...to.

I just want to know that if I take the upgrade options my key from version 6 will be allowed.

Presumably they have a way to check that you are a past customer and not just trying to get it cheaper!

Thanks

Hey Malcom, i am interested in this Question, too. Did it work? Have you been able to upgrade for 1/2 Price?

Yes malcolm,
You can upgrade for1/2 price from version 6 to version 9.

I can't tell you the procedure required to prove you are a legitimate owner of Camtasia 6 but the sales team certainly can.
Contact them, this is a user to user forum and not a direct link to TechSmith.

You can  contact the sale team at TechSmith.
