Hi all,

I read the "Client upgrade guide (memoQ 2014 - 2014 R2, English)" and I still have a question regarding the upgrade process:

Should I uninstall my current version (MemoQ 2014 Pro) before running the upgrade?

I downloaded the installation file and I noticed that the installation uses a new directory ("memoQ-2014-R2") as opposed to the current version ("memoQ-2014"). This is also reflected in the client upgrade guide (section 4).

If I continue and R2 is installed in the new directory, what happens to the files in memoq-2014 directory? Is there a cleanup procedure at the end of installation?

I don't like idea of having two separate folders for what essentially is the same program.

What is the correct and most reasonable procedure if I want to have a single most current version of the program? (2014 R2 in this case).

I would keep both (2014 + 2014 R2), since memoQ has no problem having multiple versions installed side-by-side. If you encounter whatever problem with the new version, you can always switch back to the older one (in the case of 2014 vs. 2014 R2, nearly everything is compatible). Once you're confident 2014 R2 meets all your needs, you can uninstall the older version.

Yes, that's the way memoQ works, precisely for the purpose of letting multiple versions cohabit.

Nothing happens: they stay there. If/when you decide to uninstall the older version, you can do so via the standard Windows procedure (Control Panel) and the directory will be removed.

Well, no big deal IMO.

Uninstall 2014 (via Control Panel), then install 2014 R2.

I can't upgrade to 2014 R2 Dec 13, 2014

I bought MemoQ 2013 in March 2014. I upgraded it to MemoQ 2014 easily when it was released.
Now I again clicked to upgrade to 2014 R2 but cant see it on my computer. Still, I only see 2013 R2 and 2014 on my desktop but not 2014 R2. What should I do now?
Best,

OK, I get the general idea.

Thanks for the tips!
