Yes.

A5v6 will install into a new directory.

You will launch A5v6 from an icon on the desktop.

From the File Menu, you will then through a Windows-Explorer interface, tell v6 where to find the v4 database you would like to open.

This can all be tested in the 30-day trial of v6 prior to your purchase. I highly suggest you have the v6 trial access a COPY of your v4 data during the test phase. That way, if you alter the v4 application in anyway, but decide not to continue with your upgrade, your v4 data can still be accessed by v4. Alternately, anything you create in the trial, will be accessible to you if you decide to follow through and purchase v6.

Access to the v6 trial can be found:
