This is probably a great newbie question :)

What is the normal process for upgrading minor versions of the software, i.e. 6.0 to 6.1. I can't seem to find a'check for updates' button within the software itself.

The Home screen shows "Wealth-Lab Developer Version 6.0.55 Your installation is up-to-date!", despite Wealth-Lab News stating that version 6.1 has been released. Many extensions seem to want 6.1 now. I tried downloading the installer again, but it is still the same version.

The process to upgrade WL Developer is to download from the Products page and install. It sounds like you did it about 2 hours too early.

WL Pro 6.1, which was released yesterday, automatically detects upgrades when launched. Also you can select Help > Software Upgrade for WL Pro.

Yes, I was too fast lol - thanks for the help, all upgraded to 6.1 now.

I assume when you do a minor upgrade (or a major upgrade) that all the Strategies/Script you have developed in an earlier release are not wiped in the upgrade?

Neither upgrade nor reinstallation will affect your work (including Strategies and data), configuration files or program settings.
