Please note:



The older version of the V4.07 Release Candidate had a bug in the

installer. This bug was fixed, but it means that you have to uninstall

the Release Candidate prior to upgrading. So if you want to update to

the current version of the Release Candidate, you must first uninstall

MaxIm DL.



We'll be issuing the formal release shortly. In the meantime, the RC is

available at www.diffractionlimited.com/temp/MaxImDL407.exe



Note that you do not have to uninstall a prior release version, such as

4.06. Any previous "dot" release will upgrade properly.



Thanks,



Doug

So if you installed 4.07 prior to this you need to uninstall MaximDL

completely?

Does this mean that one needs to install it completely anyway otherwise no

other updates will be able to be completed?

Yes, if (and only if) you installed an older release candidate (before

last Thursday), you need to fully uninstall and reinstall.

Hi

I also Had some problems with RC installers but it seems that

installing 4.06 over "prev" RC and then 407 over it worked for me

without unistalling/installing thing

However is probably "cleaner" to uninstall/install

Hi George,



I definitely have installed one of these older 4.07 Versions. I never

had any problem with them. Please can you tell how can I find out if I

should or not de-install and reinstall my 4.07 Versions?

Right-click on MaxIm_DL.exe, select Properties, then Version tab. If

the File Version does not say 4.7.3.0 then you've got an older version.

That means you either didn't install the current RC, or it didn't work

when you did install it.

Hi,

I installed the first version of the 4.07 release candidate.

After seeing this post about the installer bug I download the new

version and uninstalled the MaxIm release candidate. I was uphappy

to find that I lost all of my settings, calibration groups and

custom filters. If I had know if would have done that, I would have

tried to save them from the registry.



I really think it would be good if there was a way to save the

settings and cal groups to a named file.



Thanks,

Phil S.

Not sure if I'm correct about this but you can create a REG file of your settings. Of course now it's too late.



One of the downsides to beta testing is the unexpected things like you just experienced.



I'm sorry that happened to you.



Perhaps Doug could point out the correct tree in the Registry to save for the rest of us so this

doesn't happen.



Thanks,

Or... you could just save all the local settings outside the Registry-

perhaps in the user's app data folder. The same MS rules for uninstalls

require _leaving_ files like that in place.

When the first version of MaxIm DL was released, Microsoft was requiring

all settings to be in the Registry. Then they decided to go with XML

files, and initialization files were suddenly ok after all.



In general it is best not to touch tested code unless you have a very

good reason; changing this would affect hundreds of subroutines.

I agree, Doug. But I hope you'll consider pulling a lot of the settings out

of the Registry in the next major release. It sure would be nice to easily

transport the personality of the program between machines.
