Yes - Do the DataBackup first, then uninstall the previous version, then
install the new version.

Before installing, run the DataBackup program.  It is available from the
Programs>>DataBackup link in the Menu Bar of the current SatPC32
It is also in the same directory as the new install program.  Run tha using
the [Save Data] button.

Then, from Erich's download page, http://www.dk1tb.de/downloadeng.htm,
follow his instructions:

*To install SatPC32 on your PC proceed as follows: a*. Create a new folder
on your HD (using the Windows File Explorer or another file manager)  and
name it (i.e.) SatSetup.

*b.* Download the appropriate program version  using the links above.

*c.* Click on the 'Download' button of your  browser (usually a blue down
arrow). Windows will display  the name of the downloaded ZIP file. Double
click.on the file name.  WinZip  will now display  the content of the ZIP

What's New.txt
setup.exe .

*Important: Don't try to run the setup program in thr WinZip window!*  You
will get the message during installation that you need administrator
rights, even if you are the administrator.

Click on * 'Extract*  *>* *On My  PC'* instead. and in the window that
opens navigate to the  folder you created  and extract the files.

*d.*  If this is the *first *installation of SatPC32 *RIGHT click on
*setup'* and from the list that opens choose *'Run as Administrator'*. Then
follow the suggestions of the setup program.

*e. Updating of older  program versions Program version 12.8d can be
installed * into the same program folder that contains the older program
version (12.8 ... 12.8c).  Unfortunately, the older installation has to be
removed first, however.  Otherwise, the Installshield setup program of
SatPC32 V.12.8d will refuse to install the update  Your personal settings
therefore will be lost. The program *'DataBackup.Exe'  *allows you to
easily  save your settings via mouse click and then to restore them after
the installation of V.12.8d is finished.  The program 'DataBackup.Exe' can
be started from menu 'Programs' of your previous version or in the SatSetup
folder (see above)..

 After V. 12.8d has been installed run DataBackup again either  from the
new SatPC32 menu 'Programs'.or in the SatSetup folder and restore your
