how do we install updates without screwing up licensing…

uninstall…then install updates or… just install updates over previous versions?


On Windows and Linux, just install the update, your licence will be preserved. On Mac, run the old version then go to Help | View License and copy all the text from that window (usually starting with the word “PACKAGE”) to the clipboard. Then install and run the new version and paste the licence text back into the Help | View License window.

We’re working on making this much easier in the next major version, installing updates on the Mac will work the same as Windows, and you will be able to install your licence with a short activation code rather than messing about with hostids.
