Because 9 Discs means you have the Full and Complete package and will be able to do the Clean Install...
Which is Definately the way to go...
Have the Serial Number for the Express and the Upgrade handy when you Install, you may be asked for them...
After the Successful Install... go here > http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1014
and Download the Latest Update for Logic and Install it...
Restart your Mac... Open Logic and away you go...
Ok - it's done and all went well. I'll like to add the following observations/tips:
- The DVDs work under Mountain Lion (ML) (... and I've never heard of installation DVDs needing Rosetta ;-)
- During the installation you'll be asked for you license number of Logic Pro. Shortly after that you're asked in a similar manner again, but - although the installation program don't explicitly tell - this time you have to enter the license number of the previous Logic Express software (the one I used to upgrade from). At first I thought I've made a mistake when entering the Logic Pro number and it took me some time to find out, that I'd done correctly but need the Express number now.
- After the DVD installation you'll find everything on your computer (Logic Pro, Mainstage, Wave Burner, Compressor etc.) but Logic Pro will be "crossed out" (the "forbidden sign" shines over it).
- Next run the standard upgrade procedure via the apple-menu. This will produce at least 3 updates (Logic Pro, Wave Burner, Mainstage). After running those the "crossed out" sign was gone and I could run Logic Pro.
- My Logic Pro startet in 32-bit mode and I had to switch it to 64-bit manually.
Here are the corresponding screenshots:

Lot's of new stuff (beginning with the Q-Master) - but no Logic Pro:
Running the conventional App-Updater from the Apple-menu produces several updates:
After running the updates Logic Pro is available too:
Ok - that's it. Special thx @ AnaMusic - you've put me right on track! :-)
