Re: Version 7 Installation
Many thanks to Mike, Lorna, Neil and Robin for your prompt and very helpful replies. I, too, am not going to upgrade before January; I am just making plans.
Another approach that I have thought of is to download V7 onto both machines but not install it (is this possible?), then switch of the router to prevent any communication to anywhere, install V7 on both and then turn on the router. Problem here is that I do not know how upset Dropbox would get?
I should have said in my first email a very big thank you to all of you who respond so quickly to our cries for help (I do not know how you find the time; any tips?) and wish you all a very happy, and question-free, Christmas.
Isn't there a potential issue with this Lorna?
If he opens v6 on the laptop and it auto-opens the project, there could be problems as it will be then opening the converted V7 project?
When I was beta testing, I made a copy of my v6 project to a new structure at the side on OneDrive (similar concept to Dropbox), so essentially I had
FH v6 Projects
FH v7 Projects
I then upgraded the newly created project in the folder 'FH v7 Projects' leaving v6 intact.
When upgrading of course, starting up v7 for the first time opens the project window, so I set the v7 structure as the new default, then set my default project to my 'Beta' project
My thoughts would be do not open v6 on the laptop given the potential to mess up the converted project?
