    Default Full Version Patch will not update

    Got the Home version first, upgraded to Full version.
    Several months ago, I tried to update full version and it would not..... Said I had Home version.

    Tried again today, with the same results... Tried to open and run but the wizard shows an error message that I cannot read because it will not stay on the screen long enough. Tried to save it and run it ... it will save to my computer, but will not run. Again, the error message is not fully readable due to time constraints....

    I have already re-installed the home version and the upgrade. What is the procedure now???

    thanx

    Default RE: Full Version Patch will not update

    Richard, if you have both the Home Version and the Full Version installed they share certain entries in the Registry. These entries get checked when applying a patch. These entries also get updated automatically each time a Version is run.

    So, to apply a patch to the full version, run the full version first. Then close it. Then apply the patch. Do not open the home edition until the full version's patch has been applied.

    To apply a patch to the home edition, run it first. Then close it. Then apply the patch. Do not run the full version until the home edition's patch has been applied.
