Reinstallation - Frequently Asked Questions

 

Q.  I have a new PC (or HD, reformatted HD etc).  I had an early version of MeccInv

     and upgraded to a later one.  How do I reinstall MeccInv on the new PC (or drive)?

 

A.  You must install the original Setup disk, then the Upgrade disk(s).  If you have more than one

      Upgrade disk, it may not be necessary to install all of them:

 

MeccInv Version

(Setup disk)

MeccInv Version (Upgrade)  
1.0 -

I.e. To reinstall MeccInv 9.0 from a MeccInv 1.0 Setup disk requires the installation of Upgrade disks 2.0, 3.5 and 9.0 only.

 

To reinstall MeccInv 8.0 or 9.0 from a MeccInv 3.5 Setup disk requires the installation of Upgrade disk 8.0/9.0 only (without intermediate upgrade disks).

 

2.0 1.0
3.0 2.0
3.5 2.0
4.0 2.0
5.0 2.0
5.5 2.0
6.0 2.0
7.0 2.0
7.5 2.0
8.0 3.5
9.0 3.5

New Folder on A.
Same drive (e.g. C:\Newfolder) Rename C:\Meccinv as C:\Newfolder
Different drive (e.g. D:\Newfolder) Move C:\Meccinv\* to D:\Newfolder
