Re: SatPC32 12.8 released



NB, this is one of those upgrades which can NOT be simply installed over the
previous version.

============================================================================
===
SatPC32 V. 12.8 contains significant changes regarding the storage of data
files. 
Previous program versions stored program data in the SatPC32 program folder
and 
its sub folders. Beginning with version 12.8 SatPC32 stores program
application 
data in a sub folder 'SatPC32' of the Windows system folder for application
data
(the path of that folder is displayed in the foot line of the menu
'Satellites').   

Therefore don't install V. 12.8 over a previous installation! That would
leave
all previous data files in the SatPC32 program folder and its sub folders.
If you want to keep an old installation make a backup copy of the entire 
SatPC32 program folder before you uninstall the previous version. Rename the
copy 'SatPC32_127' or similar. In this folder you can run the old programs 
and look for your previous program configuration if necessary.   
 
Then uninstall the previous version. The Windows uninstaller will possibly
leave some files and sub folders in the SatPC32 program folder. Remove these
files
and sub folders with Windows Explorer or another file manager.

Then start the new setup program and follow the instructions.
