    The simple answer is no. You have to buy version 9 out right.

    You say that quite categorically Midnight. Where have you got this from? I'm not doubting you - it's just that I've always thought Sony have allowed upgrades from any previous version, so long as that serial number has not already been used for an upgrade. And the website Sony Creative Software - Online Store - Upgrades just talks about upgrade "any version.

    I was working form the principle that version 4 is so old that to upgrade it to version 9 is like a totally different program. I remember in the "good old Pinnacle days" you could upgrade but would have to do it in steps. This would mean you had to pay for each upgrade so if you are jumping from v4 to v9 you would have to pay for an upgrade to 5 then 6 then 7 etc... If Sony is different then great but it seems unreal that a jump from v4 to v9 is possible.

    I could be totally wrong, I usually am.

    I withdraw my first and second post as I was totally wrong. Yes you can upgrade from any pro version to version 9. Follow THIS LINK

    I totally apologise to the OP and anyone else who was mislead by my original answer.

    I will, of course, be committing hari-kari immediately.

    The other nice thing about Sony's licensing policy is that you can legitimately sell on your old, upgraded copy, though it will have not qualify for another upgrade.
