How To Update Or Re-install APO
The last version of the program is normally available in the APO web site (http://www.cancellieri.org/pmo_index.htm)
and new functions are often added, so you may want to frequently check the APO
version history available in the web site and see if there are any changes
interesting to you.
To determine the easiest way to update APO, look at the note placed under the download link to the "update kit" in the APO web site. This note will tell you which APO version you must have already installed from a full kit in order to be able to use the update kit.
Installing the update kit
If you can use the update kit (much smaller and faster to download and install), it is sufficient to download the update kit and extract its contents into the APO installation folder, replacing the files with the same names as the ones present in the update kit (your unzip software should be configured to replace the existing files with the same names).
Re-installing the full kit
If you cannot use the update kit, reinstall the full kit as follows:
if your database is in the APO folder, move it to a different folder
uninstall the old version of APO (see http://www.cancellieri.org/apohelp/how_to_uninstall_apo.htm)
install the full kit (see http://www.cancellieri.org/apohelp/how_to_install_apo.htm)
if your database was in the APO installation folder, put it back there.
