Re: [NTB] Notetab Pro 6 released

> Check under Help/Check for updates (I have auto-checking turned off). Notetab has decided to release this version for free to V5 registered users. Thanks!Note that the migration from 5.x to 6.0 is not _quite_ automatic:
In my case, the setup program created a new "NoteTab Pro 6" alongside
the existing "NoteTab Pro 5" folder. Some files, which *were* present in
the original setup, but are not present in the upgrade/update setup,
were not copied. Those are:
- content of the "Dictionaries" subfolder
- content of the "Sounds" subfolder
- the "efomacro.dll" library, which is supposedly needed for some clip
comands. (Is that still necessary?)
- the "spell.hlp" help file (I suppose it's probably obsolete, since
it's dated from 2006 and there has been a "spell.chm" file for some time
- Some user-added files, such as the "tidy.cfg" I have in the Notetab
folder in order to make HTMLTidy to behave the way I want it to, extra
dictionaries and such
- The "browsers.dat" is not copied -- instead, you get a brand-new one
without any hand-tweaks you may have done in the past
Most user settings, which are saved in the user profile
(%APPDATA%\NoteTab Pro), are shared seamlessly between NoteTab 5 and
NoteTab 6. However, if you have any of those making direct references to
the NoteTab 5 folder (I had a few of the settings files in my
"Favorites," for instance) they will have to be updated.
With that changed folder name and stuff... maybe it would be nice to
offer an enlarged update installer, just for this release, so as to
establish a new baseline for eventual reinstalls?

installer lets you change the target folder to anywhere you want,
including the folder of an earlier version. As indicated in the
pre-install message, it is not recommended to install version 6 over
your version 4 folder.
- Hi Lee,
> Thanks for the free upgrade! An excellent program and an excellent company!You're welcome!
We decided to make NoteTab 6 a free upgrade for version 5 customers in
consideration of the current economic climate. NoteTab users can help us
too by telling others about NoteTab 6 (Facebook, Tweeter, forums, ...)
- Thank you! This time I did just like you said. I copied NoteTabPro.exe
and NoteTabPro.ini onto my thumb drive, took it to the internet
computer, opened it, and clicked check for updates from the help menu.
It gave me the option for downloading it onto my thumbdrive. I took it
back and installed it tickety-boo!
Thanks for the upgrade to version 6!
