Q. If I upgrade to the full version of PathSmart from the demo, or from the full version of PathSmart to Pathagoras, will I lose any of my settings or path assignments?
Q. If I upgrade to a new version of Word, will I need to upgrade to a different version of Pathagoras?
Q. If I upgrade to Windows 2007 or 2010, will I also need to upgrade to a different version of Pathagoras?
A. Not to a different version, but a simple reinstall may be necessary. You will not lose any of your current settings.
Q. Do I need to uninstall Pathagoras before installing a newer version?
A. Absolutely not.
Q. Do I need to exit Word® before installing a newer version?
A. Not for the initial steps. Pathagoras can create the upgrade connection for you automatically. Click the "Upgrades” tab in the Utilities/Settings screen. Click the <Upgrade> button at the left and follow the prompts. Once the newer version of Pathagoras is downloading, you should then exit both Word and Outlook.
Q. Are there any special upgrade instructions if I have the network version?
A. If you have a Pathagoras multi-license pack, read the instructions found here to speed up your network upgrades, and to take advantage of the Smart Upgrade features.
Q. Are there any special considerations if I add new licenses to my network?
A. Not necessarily. You of course should point your Books to the proper locations consistent with office practice. If you want to use a common set of Instant Database records, you should repoint your IDB files location to the common location. Likewise, if you want to use an existing *Alias* file, you should repoint your *Alias* pointer to the proper location. Check out Pointing and Repointing.
