Received a timely response to my inquiry about the update. However, since replying that I wanted the upgrade from 3 to 5, nothing. Unable to PM you Matthias.

I used the support form via MySteinberg account and got my update link within 24h.

I´ve never ordered a boxed product from steinberg before. Does anyone know how they are delivered? UPS is a big No No for me.
I would rather have an option to download. Is this possible?

Hi, I would like to upgrade my HaLion 3 to v.5. I have found info that I should ask for it via support on www.steinberg.de website but when I dig into its content I find only that I should ask my local dealer (in Poland). So I did... and they told me to contact Steinberg directly... what shall I do???
I know the price - 149 Euro. I am willing to purchase this software but how am I suppose to do it???
Please give me a hint, or better link for download and the info where to send money?

Hi Matthias

I am hoping to be able to update my copy of Halion 3 to Halion 5, is this still possible for me to do? I did try to contact support some days ago but I have not had any reply. Any help you can give me would be much appreciated.

Hmmm. Did this ever get answered? There doesn't seem to be any path on the Steinberg site....is there any sort of upgrade path?

So I wonder if H6 is on the horizon then? :)

This is definitely no hint of H6 coming soon. The Steinberg shop never offered an upgrade from Halion 1/2/3 to H5, you were always supposed to contact Steinberg's support through your "MySteinberg" account as explained in the first post.

You will have to get in touch with Steinberg about this. I know they will deal with the sale of the license behind the scenes, as the store front itself does not allow a direct purchase upgrade from HALion 1-3, to 5, so it must be done manually in the background. At that point, you will be given the appropriate download link which will have everything you need. Obviously, coming from any HALion version prior to 4, will mean you will need to download all content that comes with 4/5, so I am sure you will be given a corresponding link to obtain such an upgrade.

Hi Guys. I hope this is a relevant post.
I just dusted out my old HALION 1 softsampler .
Tried installing it into my windows 10 laptop. The message says it was sucessfully installed. But i CANNOT see it any on my hard drive or even in my DAW.

Am I doing something that cant be done OR is there simple solution to my problem ?

thanks in advance.
