Updating Issue

Hello,
I'm new to MailWasher and LOVE it! It saves a TON of time not having to add filters manually. Anyway, the purpose of my post is when I try to update MailWasher, rather than simply updating, it wants to do a complete reinstall. I went to the folder and noticed the folder was named "Update712188," and inside the folder was: "mailwasher_pro_setup_7_12_188_free". Am I doing something wrong?

I appreciate any help you can provide.
Dave

Hi Dave,
Yes, when MW updates it will be like a normal installation, it installs the latest version over top of your current version, settings etc will be retained.

Note that yes, the latest version on our site is 7.12.188

GREAT! Thanks for the response. I sure do wish I had found MailWasher about 10 years ago! Sure would have saved me a lot of hair on top of my head...lol
