We thought this was worth pursuing with the developers; and they replied:When I installed SW v6.0.7, an option was given for the choice of file location. As I usually utilise this option, the files were placed into C:\Scientific Word 6.
With SW v6.0.18, this option did not seem to be available and the files located themselves into C:\Program Files (386)\MacKichan and did not remove the earlier installed version. I have a feeling that this should not happen as effectively this now has two full instalments.
The choice between having more or fewer options is really a trade off between choice/control and ease/convenience. If you have a preference either way, we'd love to hear – and we'll pass our users' feelings back to those who write the code.With regard to the 6.0.7 installation, removing the folder is sufficient.
The choice dialogs were removed because most users did not like wading through all those dialogs, and most just took the default choices anyway. We have given some thought to hiding them behind a standard/custom installation choice, but no decision has been made about that.
Remember you heard it from us first. Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a visit from the man himself!When Dr Sheen was seven years old she wrote a letter to Father Christmas asking why he never got any older. She received a response in shaky handwriting telling her it was 'all magic'. But the budding physicist was not convinced and wanted a rational explanation – which 26 years later she has now found.
"The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognise him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God." (John 1vv9-12)Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a visit from the man himself...
