Tim TothSubject: Upgrading and retaining settings
Author: Tim Toth

I apologize up front as I am sure this has been answered before but I could not find a topic by searching. What is the proper way to upgrade from one release to the next and retain option settings and customizations? The 2008 release 2 announcement said it would upgrade my existing installation but instead it just targeted a new install path and installed along with release 1. Should I tell each release to install to the same directory or can I copy settings from a prior release? It is a little aggravating having to redo customizations with every install.

Thanks for any help.

Hi Tim,
each version of Stylus is designed to live side by side with any other installation, so you should not try to install it in the same folder of the previous one (it would not get the old settings, and it would break the uninstallers). What you can do is to copy the registry settings found in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Stylus Studio by exporting the old key, editing the version string and re-importing the file.

Hope this helps,

Okay, can do. But isn't that a little risky to do with any given version? Wouldn't that wipe out any new keys or new value types that are only in a later version?

Hi Tim,
the HKEY_CURRENT_USER contains the per-user customizations, so nothing there should break a new version of Stylus (and in any case you can restore the initial, clean post-installation state by erasing the entire "2008 XML YYYY Suite Releaze ZZ"). The usual care needed when editing the registry (making backups, double checking every operation) should be enough to avoid side effects.
