  • Installing v4.2

    I'm ready to go from 4.1 to 4.2.

    What's the best way to UNinstall 4.1, so that when I install 4.2, everything is at default settings?

    Some of my defaults somehow got screwed up with my current 4.1 installation, such as label ID setups and some other stuff that won't keep the default settings. I'm tired of constantly having to reset things to default. So I figure this is a good time to move to 4.2.

    Am I going to have to mess with the registry to get 4.1 settings completely out?

    I don't know how to answer your question but...

    In 3.7 the button 'defaults' does not restore the default factory settings. It saves the current settings to be the default settings for next time. I would suspect it is the same in 4.1.

      Rename your 4.1 folder (back up every thing in it 1st just for safety) then when you install 4.2 create a new folder for 4.2.
