Author Topic: Uninstal TRIAL version before installing PURCHASED VERSION?  (Read 1753 times)

Is it a good idea to uninstall the trial version before I install the purchased version?

Yeah, I just bought it (yay!) and discovered you can't unlock the trial, it's another download.

I have a couple projects I started, and I want to be sure I don't lose anything.

I've had experiences (with other software) where some assets come with a trial version, and different ones come with a released version, and you have to do some special tricks to get all the trial+released assets.

Sorry to be so impatient... but I'm impatient.  I am so excited to do an export.     :)   :o

I'm going to do an Uninstall on the trial version.  I'll do a reboot before installing the purchased version.  (I'm overdue for a reboot anyway.)

My projects are saved in "My Documents" (not an Allegorithmic directory) so they should be safe.

I'll write back to let you know I'm successful, so nobody loses sleep over their concern for me.   ;)

Phew!  You can all relax now.  All is well.

My saved projects were left untouched, as expected.

The installation directory, at least some portion of it, remained after doing the uninstall.  When I installed, it noticed that the default target directory already existed.

I installed the "25 Gaming Textures" too, by placing them in the directory specified in the ReadMe.txt file, and I see all of them.

And I had to actually download, and point to, the license file.  That was a surprise.  I assumed I'd simply key in my software key.  Oh well, it's working.

Now to work on exporting to an application that does not use PBR.  I remember seeing something about that in one of the tutorials.  I'll do some searching, and hopefully I won't have to start a new thread for that.

See you around the forum.   :)
