How do I update to the recent version 1.5?

Before you update your RAMMS version, memorize your preferences (Track -> Preferences), because you have to set them again after the update.

When you start RAMMS, and if you have AutoWebUpdate enabled, RAMMS will announce a new update. You can have a look at the new ChangeLog-PDF file, where all the new stuff is explained. After that, RAMMS will ask you if you want to update to the new version.

If the WebUpdate fails (e.g. because of a firewall), then use the Manual update (click for instructions on how to use the manual update).

After the update finished, exit and restart RAMMS. Normally, RAMMS will start without any problems.

Please Note: The updated version is always a 32-bit version (even if you have a 64-bit Operating System). If you want to take advantage of the new 64-bit version (more dynamic memory can be allocated, no more memory problems any more), you have to download the 64-bit version from our webpage and install it on top of your existing RAMMS installation.

Potential problem:
You want to start RAMMS and nothing happens (nothing at all).

You have to install additional libraries (IDL Visual Studio Merge Modules). Please open your RAMMS installation directory, then open the folder 'Temp' and run the file run_system32_dll.bat

Now restart RAMMS and everything should be ok!
