Update SENIB

All SENIB updates are backwards compatible with each other.

If OpenOffice has access to the Internet and there is an update available when you open any of your "1NewHouse.ods" files then you will be advised to update SENIB by following the instructions on screen. A tutorial of this type of update can be seen here.

 

 

Update SENIB's necessary software in the downloadable file SENIBwOO.exe:


When a new version of SENIB is released, it is not necessary to update the software provided in SENIBwOO.exe, i.e. OpenOffice, PDF-XChange Viewer, Q-Dir and Notepad++. No huge improvements has been done in those programs since SENIBwOO.exe was made available for download for the first time. However, it is a good idea to update them to benefit from the improvements that has been done and to restore SENIB's original settings in the programs. The instructions for the update process below assumes SENIBwOO.exe was extracted to the suggested path C:\SENIBwOO\.

1. Close any open windows for OpenOffice, PDF-XChange Viewer, PDF-XChange Editor, Q-Dir and Notepad ++.
2. Delete the folder C:\SENIBwOO\Apps\.  (If it does not work, restart the computer and retry.)
3. Download the latest version of SENIBwOO.exe.
4. Open the downloaded file and extract it to the suggested path C:\SENIBwOO\.

This update process also updates SENIB’s untouched files in C:\SENIBwOO\SENIB\.

The SENIB extension for OpenOffice will be installed again the next time you open any of your ”1NewHouse.ods” files, because OpenOffice has been updated.

When you open the file “2UpdateSENIB.ods” then SENIB knows if the bundled software in SENIBwOO.exe has been updated and will notify you in such cases. If no changes has been made then you won’t get any message that asks you to update them.

You can also update any of the provided software’s by visiting the web page of the manufacturer and directly download the updated software there, but usually it is best to only use the versions bundled with SENIBwOO.exe because they have been tested with SENIB.
