The installer has an option to build the plugin database. Among the options is "Don't install". Select this and your previous plugin database won't be overwritten.Don't install database.PNG
Alternatively, you can make a backup of the plugin database which you wish to port over. Copy the following folder, and after installation of a new FL Studio version, merge it with the install. That is, paste the backup to the appropriate location:
…(FL Studio installation directory)\Data\Patches\Plugin database
And from the next beta on, the plugin database will be outside of the FL folder and should be easier to keep across versions.
