    Default Updating V3. What is the correct procedure?

    I am ready to update an older version of V3 but don't want to loose what I have already done.

    I read the instructions and they say to delete the old version or install in a new location.
    If I install in a new location can I move all the files needed to preserve the working sequences?
    If so, what files do I move?

    Or is there another way that is better?

    I remember seeing a thread on this a while back but can't locate it.

    3.2u1 does a good job of doing everything for you. But if you want to play it safe just delete the vixen 3 program folder in c:\program files. Then install the new version. Don't touch anything in your documents folder or any other profile location you might be using and your data will be safe.

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    I always cringe when doing a delete.

    Vixen doesn't store any user or machine data in the program files folder. We actually follow the windows rules for this. Machine specific settings are stored in appdata. And user config into is in the documents folder. The only time anything gets written to the program files\vixen folder is when you install it.

    Done.
    I don't like the black background Windows, can I change them?

    Nope. Sorry.
    But you just installed it. A lot of people have that comment at first. But after spending a few hours in it most find it much more comfortable on the eyes and much easier to work with color.

    Hasn't "grown on" me either. I find it much harder to read the text and on some screens its almost unreadable.

    "Most" of us were taught how to read and write with black letters on white paper. Early computer screens had light text on dark background and they evolved to dark text on light background because most people prefer it. Seems like Vixen3 took a step backwards.

    With that said, i understand some people may like it. But it sounds like most people do not. I really really really hope this new "theme" concept is going to allow user choice in the near future.
