update problems -- 1.0.0.386

Postby golen4 » Wed Jun 30, 2010 3:13 am

Hi, I have a problem when installing v 1.0.0.386.
I used the built in updater. It downloaded and installed Greatnews. After installed all my feeds where gone (!). Instead I got a bunch of other feeds, CNN yahoo and chinese blogs. I guess those are bundled default install feeds? After a new restart my feeds appeared again. But the version number still says "Version 1.0.0.383 Data file version 1.0.0.108".

How do I do a complete update without losing my feeds (and read and unread news in those feeds -- I do not want to lose all the news items on update)?

Are you using the zipped version before? You can search for newsfeed.db to see there's more than one copy on your disk. The upgrade program will not override existing one.

Hi! I may have been using the zipped version, but I don't remember exactly. Just to make sure: If I backup the newsfeed.db, uninstall Greatnews completely, install new version and copy newsfeed.db to the program directory will I then get all feeds and feed items (read, unread and so on) exactly as before? Or do I need to do anything more?
