Installing V6 next to V5?

Postby JuanFusy » Thu Feb 03, 2011 1:06 pm

Hello there, just saw that V6 beta was out on Tweakers.net, why isn't this mentioned in MOTD?

Would like to know if I can install V6 alongside V5, so that nothing is affected in V5...

Regards, and keep up the good work,
JF.

it is relewased to the forums first inase any majot bigs are found then then if its all ok in a week then it gets mentioned in the motd

yes you can run them side by side, you need to install into a different folder and then you can use different data paths and nbi files via the shortcuts, i did this during the alpha testing

You probably want to use the same data folder. It's the only way you can import the 5.59 version stored headers.

@Quade: I can go either way, no real need for data, as I only read headers from humour groups, guess I make it a fresh 1
