Logic 8 Can I clean install Logic Pro 8 upgrade?

    Hi,

    I have Logic 7.2.3 installed on my old mac, and an unopened "Logic Pro 8" upgrade. I've just bought a new mac which I'd like to install the upgrade to, so my question is: do I need to install Logic 7 on my new mac first? Ideally I'd like to install Logic Pro 8 fresh, as this seems like the cleaner way of doing it, but I don't know if this will work - the Pro 8 DVD specifically says "upgrade", which makes me dubious. Can anyone advise one way or the other?
    Thanks in advance,

    Paul

    You can definitely install version 8 without having version 7 on your drive - even though it's called an "upgrade". You will need to have your L7 dongle inserted though in order for the L8 Upgrade installer to work. The requirement of the old dongle is the attribute that distinguishes this "upgrade" from the stand alone new version.
