What is the latest stable release?
« on: November 08, 2010, 05:27:14 PM »

I'm using version 3.228.  I'm trying to figure out if I should upgrade to a later version. I know that the last time I tried a later release it was buggy and unusable.  What is considered to be the latest release that's stable enough to use?

Believe it or else, the ONLY the only version to avoid is 3.236.  Everything else is fine.  I'm running 3.271 with no plug-ins (Don't need them. and it's running fine all timers work as written and my single keypress macro runs correctly.

3.294 created some bugs, every other recent build has been an improvement on the one before it.  I recommend the latest release 296.

It didn't for me (no plug-ins), but as a clean install it may work fine.

Since it's been a while since I installed any AHP software, let me ask:  should I uninstall the old version before I update?  If I install the new updated version, will it automatically have the previous licence info?

Installing the latest version as an upgrade to what you currently have installed is supposed to carry over all your licenses, settings, timers, etc.
I think that uninstalling wipes all that out, so you might be better off doing the upgrade.
Some users have reported problems doing it as an upgrade, but it seems that many (most?) users, myself included, have not had those issues.

If everybody backed up their registration code(s) doing a full uninstall/reinstall is not a problem as a new install the first time has the registration info in the e-mail X10 sends.  I don't use any plug-ins (don't need or want) but my registration code was backed up (even though the E-mail still exists in the X10 folder in Outlook).

I did it as an upgrade without uninstalling the old program and it worked fine for me.

Just to make it official, there is no need to uninstall before doing a new install.

Are you sure of that?   I first got AHP in 2005 and every upgrade to it over the next 5 years was a mass of one version installed  over another., so the upgrade to version 3.236 was unworkable, timers refused to run, so that's when I backdated to 3.204/3.228 I totally uninstalled AHP and the two folders it creates. When I installed 3.204 and immediately upgraded to 3.228 (that's the only way you get it) it ran fine.

So any time a new version comes out, I do the uninstall completely and the new version begins with new folders and they run fine.

My guess would be something became corrupt and the full removal and reinstall repaired that.
Normally, I do not fully uninstall and just run the newer installer without issue.
There have been several versions that had some bugs and this could make it look as though the upgrade caused the issue. (Which in a sense would have)
The latest 3.296 build seems to be working fairly well for me, so far.  >!

Why are the buggy versions still available? I would think that x10 people would have removed them and only made available the most stable version? Or...???

It appears the ONLY buggy version is 3.203.   All the rest are used by the X10 users.
