How Do You Manage Multiple Unilogic Versions

Recommended Posts

I routinely find myself bouncing between 3-4 different revisions of unilogic depending on what version the program on the controller was created on.  I've only been able to do this by uninstall whatever version I have and re-install the version I need.  Is there a quicker way to somehow keep multiple versions on the same box without having to go through the uninstall- install process?

When you install a new version of UniLogic it asks you if you want to keep the previous version. Say yes. You will then have both versions installed. You can continue this as needed. I have 8 versions installed on my desktop right now.

I just tried to install a later version on windows 10, checked the box to keep the old version and got this error box. If I pick "ok" it will un-install the previous version, If I hit "cancel" it exits out of the installer.

Is this a Windows controlled requester, or a Unitronics one?   If it is Unitronics, the wording needs to be changed.  If Windows, perhaps there is a workaround?

  Like Swervo, I would find this very confusing for it to do exactly opposite what it is saying.  Especially when the "result" is what people are wanting to implement.

Well, It's installshield and it is doing exactly what it says.

The installer needs to uninstall the current version in order to install the new one, When you check the "Keep old version", it simply copies the current version to another directory, changes some config file, copies some other files to that directory, creates a shortcut, and only then asks you if you want to uninstall.

Saragani, if you had this requester come up without already knowing what the program did (as you have carefully and well described) you would no doubt be confused too. 

Perhaps your description of what happens when you keep old version needs to be inserted into the InstallShield wording.

Hi guys,

Sorry for the confusion.

I will enquire about changing/adding something to the wording--but I know from past experience that Installshield is Installshield, and it is doubtful it will be changed...
