Hi,what`s the best way to install TI 10.0 as per my question in the title?
Thanks for the info.
I’d install over 9. Seems to work OK.
I installed 10 overtop of 9 without any problems.
Installing 10 over 9 should work just fine, and that seems to be borne out by several posts I've read here.
Even so, when I finally upgrade - and I'm in no rush to do so - I'll do a clean install. Just because v9 was my first experience with True Image and I probably tormented the program as I was learning how to use it. Any sc***-ups still buried in my backup/recovery jobs will be erased in a clean install.
I wasn't sure, so I unloaded 9 first. Pleasant surprise.. it kept all my settings and schedules!
I did notice one thing.. I have an upgradeof 10. I actually started the process of upgrading before I decided to unload first.. and got as far as the key. When version 9 was still installed, it only needed my version 10 key. When I unloaded 9 and installed 10 from scratch, it asked for both my version 10 key and my version 9 key, as it always does on a fresh install. This tend to make me belive that they fully intended it to be upgradable with version 9 installed.
That said.. unless your machine is dead slow, I would unload 9 first. It keeps all your settings, and you just never know when a DLL (or registry entry, for that matter) is going to become obsolete, slip through the cracks at build time and end up being left "running" on your system.. it happens.
