    Default Install A4v7 using A4v6 folder

    For all us non pros out there.

    I installed A4v7 on my machine, and copied all my files over. Then I realized I would have to go into my applications and change the paths for printing, help files etc.(a big job to say the least).

    I happened to call Alpha on an unrelated matter and found that you can install A4v7 into the old A4v6 folder, thus eliminating the need to change any applications. I was up and running in minutes. It's great.

    It works smoothly and best of all, to this point, there have been no crashes. The program seems to use memory better as well.

    I hope this helps some of the non techies out there like myself.

    Hi
    Installing to the old folderis great but there are a lot of unnecessary files ( from the sample applications i.e. *.un* etc ) it would be nice if Alpha would have given us a list of just the functional files or better yet an install.bat for replacing into the a4v6 folder with only the necessary files installed.

    Hi Harvey

    I know what you mean, but with the size of hard drives these days, a few extra defunct files I can live with if it means not having to re-write all my applications. At the very worst, your probably looking at 1 meg of unusable space.

    Regards
