Update and keep categories?

Post by Nimrodel » Tue Feb 13, 2018 3:23 pm

Hello,
I used xnview MP version 0.88. I downloaded it as " Zip Win 64bit". Now I wanted to update to the new version 0.89, so I downloaded it again; but now I have two Xnview MP on my computer, one with the old version and all my categories, and one with the new version but "blank", with the standard-categories. What did I do wrong?

Maybe, I'm not sure. Can you tell from these screenshots?

you use folder of XnView, so xnview.ini and all .db files are in this folder, you need to copy them in 0.89 folder
