CleverPsych Update Instructions
New versions of CleverPsych are released occasionally. If you send
mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or purchase a licence we will add
you to a mail list and advise you when an update is available.

installation scripts will also backup the default CleverData

If you download a new version and install it, the two folders
CleverPsych and CleverDemo will be replaced.The installation script
will make a backup copy of the CleverData folder in case something
goes wrong, but does not backup non-standard CleverData folders.
The installation will also install a late version of Java. You can
also do this via the Java update service.
After installing the Demo system will start so you can see
what new features have been added.
When you start the new version your database in the C:\CleverData
folder may be extended to support new features, and files may be
added or updated. You may find that you have to manually update your
configuration files, in particular the config\Configuration.txt file
in your CleverData folder from the version in the new CleverDemo
There could also be new letters and other document template files
available in the template folder.

After installation you need
only start CleverPsych from the usual icon. This will use
the new version of the software but continue using your CleverData
folder for the database etc.
The CleverPsych system will attempt to update your files for any
changes. There could be problems if you have additional
CleverDataXXXXX folders for other users or locations.
