- First uninstall any old version
- For Huygens2 3.1 (and higher) use (lower use huscript.exe)
-To keep templates of any old version 1.6 and lower, make a copy of the Deconvolve.mdb file from the "c:\program files\deconvolve" folder and overwrite the default Deconvolve.mdb file, after installing a new version.
From version 1.7 the Deconvolve.mdb file is located in the local settings folder: "C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Application Data\deconvolve\" new installs will not overwrite this this file anymore)
