There are 2 types of updates: Main version updates, eg. from MuLab 8 to MuLab 9, and sub-version updates, eg. from MuLab 9.4 to MuLab 9.5.
It's recommended to keep a separate folder for each main MuLab version.
So best to have a separate install folder for MuLab 7, one of MuLab 8, one for MuLab 9, and so on.
When installing a new main MuLab folder then you can copy-paste all your user settings from a previous MuLab folder to a new MuLab folder by doing this:
- Goto your previous MuLab installation folder and copy the User sub-folder to the clipboard.
- Goto your new MuLab installation folder and delete the User sub-folder.
- Then paste the User sub-folder from the clipboard into the new MuLab installation folder.
This way you have copied all your original user settings into your new MuLab installation folder.
Within a main MuLab version it's only a matter of updating the binary application file.
For MuLab App it's about updating MuLab.exe + MuLab.ID (2 files)
For MuLab Plugin it's about updating MuLab Plugin.dll + MuLab Plugin.ID + MuLab Plugin (Synth).dll + MuLab Plugin (Synth).ID (4 files)
This can be done via the main MULAB menu at the top-left of the main window -> Info -> Check For Updates.
That way you can easily download the most recent version as a zip file into your current MuLab.exe folder.
Then quit MuLab, open the zip and update the above mentioned files to the newest version.
