I was having problems with Agent (6) so I decided to upgrade to Agent
8. Agent 8 didn't remove 6, so I have this weird posting thing going
on. I just hope that I don't have to uninstall both versions and
re-install 8 to get a clean program running. (This is why I make
gallons of kahlua. It is my "medicine" when I am having computer
problems. If my husband sees me drinking kahlua at the computer he
knows to back away silently and no joshing around trying to get me in
a better humor.

La Bove will be along any moment now with her version of similar problems.

That's weird. Did you reboot? If so, go to Programs & Features and
remove v6 manually - reboot if you need to. You may have to do a
clean reinstall. With any luck your new 8 will find your old 6 and
use your settings from that. I haven't upgraded because I really,
really, really hate the process of crippling it back to the way I want
it just to have the one or two not so new features.

Your best bet is to ask at a.u.offline-reader.forte-agent - they have
MVPs there who answer questions, in fact, I believe someone else asked
that just recently when 8 came out.


I agree that the site is excellent. Ralph Fox always give good
instructions. You might try reading at least the questions, skip the
answers unless they are pertinent to your problem.

When you ask the question, explain what you did and what is going
wrong.

I have learned after many years with Agent and other programs that I
make a backup copy of my Agent directory and then upgrade. If it gets
messed up I can start over.

You can install multiple copies of Agent on the same computer, so just
reinstall v6 if you like. I haven't really 'installed' Agent in a long
time - I just copy and paste the Agent folders from computer to
another, run the exe file and away it goes, exactly where I last left
off.
