Can I open vpp from one edition to another?

I’m considering getting the standard edition and my whole class is using the community one. Can I:

  1. just upgrade to the standard edition or it’s a whole new install
  2. transfer my projects from the community edition to the standard one
  3. Can other people, who are using the community edition open the projects and diagrams I would create with the standard edition?


Hi Gabrielle,

Thank you for your inquiry.

  1. Yes, you can upgrade your Community Edition to Standard without re-installation. All you need to do is to replace your license (Window > License Manager)

  2. You do not need to do anything to make your project workable under the Standard Edition. You just need to open it directly under VP Standard.

  3. Yes, project files are compatible among editions.

Best regards,
Jick Yeung
