Upgrading to capella 8 and removing the old version
After installing capella 8 you will have two entries on your list of programs – the old capella and this new capella 8. You can uninstall the old version by clicking on the entry in Program Files. You will then see an option to uninstall as well as to start the program. Alternatively you can go into Add/Remove Programs under Windows Control Panel and do the same.
Note Uninstalling capella does not remove any of your music files that you have created with capella. However we would always recommend that you back these up first, as I am sure you have learnt that with computers nothing can be guaranteed! Uninstalling the old version can in some circumstance remove the music font. If this happens, re-install capella 8. Usually your web browser will give you the choice to Run or Save the program. Run will download our installation program to a temporary folder creaed by the browser. The browser will then run the install module in our software and after our software is installed the browser will ‘tidy up’ by removing the downloaded installation program. The software will be installed, but should you wish to re-install the software you will need to download it again. If you choose to Save the program the install module will be saved to the folder that you select and you must then Run the installation program. The simplest way to Run the installation is to double click on it.
