Can I get 0.6.2 and 0.7.1 on the same computer?

I have two novels I started and am finishing up on 0.6.2. And I'd like to start working on cleaning up another novel, but this time I want to try 0.7.1. BUT when I downloaded (actually it was 0.7.0) the new one, it got rid of 0.6.2. And then when I re-downloaded 0.6.2, it got rid of 0.7.0.

How do I get 0.6.2 and 0.7.1 on the same computer? Thanks.

You needn't be frightened to finish the book you started in 0.6 in the latest version. As always, make sure any auto-tidy functions are turned off.

Setup will install Sigil into the following folder.

You can create a new folder Sigil71 for the new version or whatever name you like, then choose it as the prompt above.

Thanks Wombat, but I AM scared to finish the 0.6.2 in 0.7.1. And since I don't have to (I'm like 95% done with the first two) I'm like, Why risk it?

And I don't even know what the "auto-tidy" functions are, let alone am I not always making sure they're off.

Think you could explain this a bit? Thanks.

Thanks mrmikel. I think I get this. When I install it, the window comes up asking if I want to install it somewhere else than where they're suggesting. I create a new folder (not sure how I'm doing that, though) named Sigil71 (or whatever) then somehow put that into the place they're suggesting?

Maybe (lol) I'm not getting it so great. I'll try it though. Thanks.

If you know how to use Windows Explorer you can highlight Program Files (x86), then press the new folder button and give it whatever name you like. Then when you get to that window where they ask where to install just press the browse button and locate the new folder and you are good to go.

As for finishing off a 6.2 document in 7.1, I did it without any concern at all. Save as the 6.2 document with a different name, then open the new named document in 7.1. If it fails you can always go back to the original and try again.

As an author you probably ought to be doing a lot of saving as so you not lose your work no matter what happens, including deciding the murgatroid should not really marry whosit after all!

In Edit/Preferences/Clean Source turn off all options to do ANYTHING automatically. Don't turn them on until you understand what they do. Information is easily available.

You have a good instinct - finish any project in the program it started in. There's probably no need in this case, but sure, keep that option open. Before starting an editing session on an epub you always make a safety copy, don't you, just in case it all goes belly-up? Well, this time make an extra one, and store it particularly carefully! That's your insurance. In the unlikely event that 0.7.1 ruins your book (or the slightly more likely one that you get confused by the new ways of the new program and mess something up:-) nothing is lost.

Epub files are completely portable between different versions of Sigil. It's not like some programs that keep introducing new, non-backward-compatible storage formats.

Just install v0.6.2 and copy the install folder to another location, then uninstall it.
Now install v0.7.1 and you will have both programs, you only need to create a shortcut for v0.6.2 (it will work like a portable version).

Correct me if I'm wrong, but won't the two versions still share the same local prefs and registry keys? I didn't think it was possible to have two completely independent versions of Sigil--regardless of where you install the program files.

When I open the preferences folder it is identical in both versions.
There might be a difference in registry keys for the 64 bit version vs. the 32 bit.

I don't know if this works for Sigil, but with many apps you can do it by installing using different Windows users.

That ALSO gets around the single profile restriction. Each user has their own profile.

In my machine the whole thing is under Users, Mike, AppData, so unless the developers say different looks like the way to go. Gregg could have his stories ghost written by his alter ego user!
