After version 8.1, YourOtherMind the Writer’s Organizer will be using an automatic updating system.
Backup your files before updating!
Unfortunately for users of YourOtherMind 8.0 and previous, some manual steps will need to be taken to update to the latest version. Luckily once this is done, the automatic updater can then be used for any future updates.
Detailed Steps – How to update to version 8.1?
Please contact us immediately if anything goes wrong!
1. Even after updating it still loads the old version. This should not affect any end-user but just in case it does, sometimes there might be an old version of YourOtherMind in the Data BACKUP you made earlier. To get rid of it just go into My Documents/YourOtherMind/Data/Exe/Current and delete the manifest.txt file AND make sure that there is a file called allow.txt in that folder. This will enable the autoupdater to ensure you have the latest version.
2. Restart YourOtherMind using your start menu short-cut (to ensure the autoupdater is loaded)
