Why does Nero 12 Platinum use two separate installers for the main application and for the content pack?

I wondered about that myself.

In the past, basically the whole Suite was downloaded as a large file which could be activated to Platinum by inserting a purchased Platinum serial number in the Nero ControlCenter. The way they're doing it now, a person who doesn't buy Platinum has a smaller download. Is that why they're doing it this way? I don't know. The new way also makes it more difficult to use a hacked serial number to go Platinum.

Just my thoughts.

Why is the Nero 12 Content Pack actually stored in the Nero 11 folder even after I uninstalled all Nero software and clean installed Nero 12 and then the content pack?

Did you delete the v11 folders before you installed v12?

I have v10, v11 and v12 installed on this system. The Nero Content shows up in the v10 and v11 folders but not the v12 folder. I don't really care as long as everything works. Maybe Nero content is not included in v12.

I deleted the entire Nero folder after uninstalling Nero 11 and before installing Nero 12.

Cause the content pack works for both nero 11 and nero 12 - so users, who want to use nero 11 and nero 12 in parallel don't need to download and install both packs.

This was requested by many users. Many user how bought Nero 11 Platinum have complained about the "big" installer - they said, they don't need/want the content-packs - e.g. the don't have a fast internet connection and so don't want to be forced to download it.
