Re: Upgrading Nova



To upgrade to the latest build (a simple nfw32.exe copy) you have to have
version 2.1v otherwise you have to install the whole new version.  My
experience has been between versions (example 2.1r to 2.1s) the settings
formats were changed and lost on an upgrade - that's when I asked the author
to add a way to save the settings between versions.

If you have a newer version you can now use "File" / "Export Settings" to
save some of your settings before upgrading.  Per the help ..

"Export Settings does not save everything about your Views.  It only saves
the Satellites, Observers, and map style so that you have a basis for
rebuilding your settings after updating"
