!! Windows 7 no longer supported !!

As Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7 on Jan 20th we will be unable to test any of our
products on that platform. It may work, or it may not, but no guarantees from our side.

How to install SimStarter 1.3.0.1?

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, I was a day early as I downloaded and installed the previous version of SimStarter.

 

How do I update to version 1.3.0.1, do I uninstall the previous, and install the new, or install the latest on top of the previous?

Hi Bill,

 

I just used the installer and installed the new version above the existing one. Worked totally fine for me.

Yes. Alternatively you can also enable the automatic update in the program settings of SimStarter NG.

Capt. PERO,

Could you be more specific on the 2 major UPDATE questions from v1.2 to v1.3:

1) Do I need to uninstall v1.2 before the update?

2) Can I use DATA from  v1.2 in v1.3?

I've read your general 'how to's about when it is a major update or bug fixes only, but the above 2 questions must always be unambiguously addressed in the release notes. Please advise here and kindly do that in the future updates.

 

Thanks,

Sabre10

Yes. Just uninstall (do not delete files manually) - install v1.3. Works fine.

 

Capt. PERO, sorry, but it's an incomplete instruction again. Can I use the previous DATA folder from v1.2?

I backed up DATA folder, then uninstalled v1.2 and then deleted SimStarter folder manually. Now, after the fresh install of v1.3 can I drop the DATA folder back to SimStarter and overwrite the default one?

 

Thanks,
