SDAC 4.70 won't install if you have also ODAC 6.50

If I try to install SDAC 4.70.0.41 I get an message from setup "Setup has detected already installed DAC packages which are incompatible with current version. Pleas uninstall DAC products."

The only other DAC product I have installed is ODAC 6.50.0.39. With SDAC 4.50.39 it was no problem. If I uninstall ODAC, it's no problem to install SDAC 4.70. Do I have to upgrade ODAC (which I bought more than a year ago) to get ODAC 6.70 to use SDAC 4.70 (which I bought some weeks ago) ?

I found the answer and my suggestion was correct. If I want to install a newer version of SDAC (4.70), which I bougth only several weeks ago, I have to renew my subscription of ODAC to get a corresponding version that will work together with SDAC 4.70. This is because of the use of base packages.
