asked Nov 26, 2019 in Studio One 4 by weskleyraupp (370 points)

I already have Studio One 4 Artist (I got it when I bought my Pressonus StudioLive III) and I'm trying to upgrade "Studio One Artist 3 or 4 to Professional 4 - Quantum Upgrade " , but this message appears:

"Sorry, you don't have the proper prior version registered for this upgrade. Please remove it from your cart to continue."

I also tried the "Studio One 4 Professional from Artist Update" option to test and the same thing happened.

(*My Studio One Artist is already registered on

How can I proceed? Thank you.

Same to me! I just wanted to buy the upgrade von S1 Version 4 Artist to Professional:
Sorry, you don't have the proper prior version registered for this upgrade. Please remove it from your cart to continue.

I `ve got S1 Version 3 Professional in my Account! So wants wrong?

I'm having the same issue. Unfortunately, trying through mobile didn't work for me. 

I have an older version looks like. If this is because its older that doesn't seem right, it says specifically in the title "all versions" and I'm not seeing any caveats to that on any page.

Same problem here too, only I purchased my upgrade from Sweetwater, have the product key and everything but it says I need to register and upgrade through the mypresonus page yet when i go to my registered Artist version, there's no "UPGRADE" button where the registration tutorial shows it should be.  So I can't upgrade anything.  I tried through the actual software but it says I need to do it through the website but I have no "UPGRADE" button to click on.  I really hope I'm not out $150!  It says upgrade from ANY ARTIST VERSION.  I even tried through my iPhone but no luck there either.

The "Quantum Upgrade" only works if you have a Quantun interface

I was searching for answers to the upgrade problem.  I don't see any, just more problems?  Is it really this complicated?

I just figured this out so hopefully it helps other people since answers seem so scarce. If like me you bought your upgrade form a third party, their instructions probably tell you to go enter your code on your my.presonus account but it's wrong. The upgrade happens within the software. When you launch Studio One you can immediately go to the top menu, under studio one there are options for activating licenses etc. and that's where you do the upgrade. Very frustrating to discover but hopefully it helps someone else.
