Is it possible to upgrade the full version of Finale 2003 to Finale 2010?

Yes.

More information: You can purchase a "large upgrade", which is a discounted price for updating any version of Finale to the latest one. You receive a complete new installer for the new program -- it is not an "upgrader" as such. The "Small upgrade" is for upgrading last year's version to this year's version.

The latest version is 2011. You should check the minimum requirements of the hardware and OS software needed to run it.

You will find that a LOT has changed since 2003. To get the most from your purchase, you must watch the QuickStart Videos, look at the "What's new" files, read the user manual and do the tutorials. If you keep expecting it to work in the old ways, you may end up banging your head against a brick wall. Figuratively, or actually!

Note that you have posted in the forum area for Finale Plug-in Software Development. If you post again in either the Mac or Windows sections, you'll get more replies.
