I just installed SW2011 standard and it has problems can I uninstall it and reinstall it? What happens to the files I saved under 2011 from 2010 and what is the best way to uninstall older versions.
Yes you can uninstall / reinstall. Any files you saved under 2011 will have been conv erted to the 2011 version, so they will need to be used from within 2011. Uninstalling is best when done following correct Windows procedure - go to Control Panel/Programs and uninstall from there.
What type of problems were you experiencing?
Some of the commandmanager buttons are missing? I loaded it from a disk to upgrade from 2009 and as I was installing 2011 it asked if I wanted the latest version. There is 2008, 2009 and 2010 on this computer I am trying to just keep 2010 and 2011 on it?
It is possible to have several versions of SWorks on your computer but you need to be careful about some file location settings that could cause some confusion.
Regarding the command manager buttons - do you mean individual commands are missing from some command manager tabs or the entire tab is missing? Every yearly update seems to have some minor changes regarding tool commands (icons, location).
Have you used the "copy settings wizard"?
It is onle some individual commands.
No I have not tried the "copy setting wizard" I will try it now.
Make sure you backup your 2010 files before converting them to 2011.
