Welcome to the forum.

It's just a matter of upgrading your current Lightworks with the license after you've purchased it.

Here's a video tutorial (ignore the layout) and you'll also find an installation and activation guide in downloads > documentation.

My system has the below config

Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 2540GHz
12 GM RAM
64 bit operating system

will it support the paid software?

If you're running the free version, it's identical. The licence just unlocks the extra options.

Buy the license you want on the shop page.

You don't need to download any programs at all for Pro Export.
In order to equip your free version with pro features, the license files on your system will be replaced. The easiest way to do this is to have your computer connected to the Internet when activating the license. Then you just have to activate the license on your computer in the settings.

After the purchase you will also receive an email with activation instructions.
Note that a license can only activate a limited number of computers (depending on the license purchased). Activation for 1 computer is common (+ 1 reserve activation, except for the monthly license).

After activation you have more export options. This also includes an adjustable bit rate for H.264 / MP4 exports, for example. You should check these before exporting and correct them if necessary. In my case (and with some other users) this was set far too low by default.

EDIT: If your license contains "Boris" packages (third-party effects), you need a little more to use them. However, this is unnecessary for the extended export features.
