upgrading 8.3 to 8.4 question


Recommended Posts

I just installed 8.3. Used it several times and then downloaded the upgrade to 8.4. I took the two 8.4 exe files (FSC84.exe and FSCDbManager84.exe )and placed them in the FSC folder. Initially I removed the two previous 8.3 exe files. When I opened FSC with the new FSC84.exe, it first created another FSC83.exe and FSCDbManager83.exe files. I now have both 83.exe and 84.exe files in my FSC folder. Are there supposed to be 2 of each there after upgrading to 8.4? Was I supposed to leave the 83.exe files there from the beginning??

I also noticed there are several duplicated files in the FSC folder, with ".old" next to them. Are these supposed to be there?

Just want to make sure that everything is correct Thanks, Al

Hi Al,

there is no reason to delete the older version.

Just following the instruction for the update/patch and don't forget to create to new Links for the

Databasemanager and FSCommander on your desktop to make sure that you run the current, new version.

Never delete the *.old files, there are a part of the program.Volker
