[REBOL] Re: (winnt) view upgrade problems - try this

From: arolls::bigpond::net::au at: 13-Dec-2000 11:31

(This is what I did) go to get the latest view archive If you are not going to change any of your settings, directories, etc, there's no need to reinstall. Just copy rebol.exe right over the top of your old one, (without rebol running). The other couple of setup scripts that also come in the archive are probably the same. I remember checking this with something like
>> equal? read/binary file1 read/binary file2
(true for me).

I think this is because you are trying to install over your old executable. But rebol.exe is still running at the time of the attempt to overwrite itself.

Compare, if you can, for each version, the word Beta-Expiration-Date. It should be further in the future for the newer one, giving you more time to use it.

Yeah, pretty much. You can easily have both, though :) Core is a subset of View. I am keeping an older release Core to test my programs against. Anton.
