Hello all,

I am running the current XP11 Demo on my C:\ drive and I was wondering: when I buy the Steam version on release, do I have to re-install the program entirely via Steam's game directory or can I set it up via the current Demo directory without overriding existing files? If I can just install it in place of the current demo without overriding files that would save a lot of time.

If you purchase through Steam you will have to re-install the entire game because you will use it through the Steam client from then on. The demo is only available through LR and uses a proprietary installer that is not compatible with Steam.
