Enduser question

#1
Hi Arno,
as an enduser I have several questions:
- I learned, that there is no need for an enduser to install ACM manually. Now I have seen that the version on my machine is quite outdated (1.0.6523.39989). So does it make sense to update it with your latest version 1.2.xxx, and if so how to do?
- ACM creates a lot of backupfiles, in my case meanwhile 2GB. Is it safe to delete most of them manually, except e.g. the last 3 backups?

Running P3Dv4.5

Thanks,
Otto

Hi Otto,

You can update to the latest versions. It's just a matter of downloading the latest version and running it in install mode. That will replace your current version. The developers user manual explains how to do this.

ACM should only keep a certain number of backup files. From my mind it's maximum 50 of them, so I'm surprised they are so big. How many backups do you have? It's safe to remove backups manually.

Yes, that's how you install it.

True, at 50 mb per backup it adds up quickly. Let me check the number of backups in the code.
