Upgrading Avid MC, should I deactivate Ignite Pro 2017 and uninstall it?

I'm upgrading my Avid Media Composer from 8.3.1 to 8.9.4. For that I need to deactivate it and uninstall and then install and activate.

I have Ignite Pro 2017 installed as well. Do I also need to deactivate that, uninstall and then reinstall and activate?

Also, if I have a license for Ignite Pro 2017 does it carry over to Ignite Pro? Looking around the site I saw that the '2017' is listed under Old Software.

Thanks!

    Deactivate and reactivate Ignite for safety. I'm not 100% certain about Avid carrying over the plug-ins, but, I know Vegas Pro needs to be installed before Hitfilm. 

    The current Hitfilm Ignite is a newer version than Ignite 2017. As a "full version number" update (new effects, etc), it's a different product--but there should be an upgrade discount.
