I found I cannot download newer drumkits to my old 9.4 version and need an upgrade to the latest version.  It's for an off line PC so I can't upgrade online.  Could somebody let me know where to get a disc version?  I'm using WindowsXP.

My off line PC was dinged when I changed to another security program from Norton...no kinds words for that trip wire they left.  My tech advised not using that PC on line.  That one I use for off line music work only now, that's whey I need an upgraded disc for it.  I bought a version 9.4 from ebay and installed it on this on-line PC  from there I upgraded on-line download to the 9.6 OK, but that 9.4 version on the offline PC won't download newer drumkits as I found out in the manual.  So, again, is there a disc version of 9.6 available?

you bought hydrogen 9.4 ????  who did you buy it from ?

Hydrogen is free and open source (note the 'free') Sorry to say this, but it seems that someone took advantage of you :-(

as for the upgrade : you simply uninstall your 0.9.4 and install the 0.9.6 using the installer that you can download from the download page (for free :-)

You can download the installer using any other pc and copy it onto a usb drive (or CD), next connect that usb drive to your pc, copy the installer to the C: drive and run it

that should do the trick

Thanks for the directions where I can download 9.6 to a CD...legally and then run it in the off line PC.   I got the 9.4 from ebay for $8 and the disc label says "Virtual Drum Machine and beat generation, by Premier Studios inc."  There is another one on ebay for the same price and browsing it's description it showed images of hydrogen windows. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Virtual-Pro-DJ-Live-PC-Laptop-MP3-Decks-Mixing-and-Drum-Machine-Music-Production-/261114780257?pt=UK_Computing_Software_Software_SR&hash=item3ccba75a61

Seems like a Brit seller.  But, for the $8 I got onto Hydrogen and it's helpful forum.  Thanks again.
