HowTo / Notes

HOWTO update from Geogrid 2.0ff to 3.2

Download upgrade package from Copy/geography Copy/download Copy.html?display_media=/xml/content/OF00000000400003/3/41/41242413.exe

and save it i.e. to $WINEPREFIX/drive_c. Start upgrade with wine "C:\41242413.exe". The upgrade did'nt work for me if the executable was not started from within the wine drive_c. The installation requires a original CD in the drive and searches for the installed 2.0 binaries. If it finds a 2.0 version it replaces it with the new version.­­
