How to upgrade to the latest version?

It is a little different to upgrade Desktop Edition and Portable Edition.

Steps for upgrading Desktop Edition:

  1. Please first download the latest EfficientPIM installation package at the official website: http://www.efficientsoftware.net/
  2. If your EfficientPIM is running, please exit it first.
  3. You need not uninstall EfficientPIM.
  4. Run the executable "EfficientPIM-Setup.exe" that you have downloaded to the local computer.
  5. Follow its instructions step by step to complete installation. You are suggested to install EfficientPIM to the same directory of the older version.
  6. Run the latest version of EfficientPIM.
  7. The new version will automatically open the data files of the old version, and whenever necessary, will convert the format(s) of the data files to the latest version automatically.

Steps for upgrading Portable Edition:

(Note: By default, the data files of EfficientPIM Portable are stored in the "Documents" subdirectory within the extracted directory. Therefore, to avoid unwanted data deletion, please do not simply remove the whole installation directory of the older version before upgrading to the newer one.)

  • Please first download the compressed (.zip) file of the latest version of EfficientPIM Portable.
  • If your EfficientPIM is running, please exit it first.
  • Extract the downloaded file "EfficientPIM-Port.zip" with Win Zip or a similar tool to the same directory as that for the older version. When you see the "Confirm File Overwrite" dialog box, please click "Yes" or a similar button to confirm. (Only files necessary for the running of EfficientPIM are included in the compressed pack. Data files are not included. So do not worry that your existing data files could be overwritten.)
  • Run EfficientPIM.exe in the extracted directory.
  • The new version will automatically open the data files of the old version, and whenever necessary, will convert the format(s) of the data files to the latest version automatically.
