I know Free version can do the clean install. I saw that option. However, I was trying to avoid it so the new version would pick up where the old left off. ZA Pro makes the clean install easier by looking programs up on a server. ZA Free doesn't bother. So your retraining is minimal. Mine isn't.
Will, you have some serious issues and hangups about having the free version vs. the ProVersion. A clean install is something you physically have to do by using a -switch in the uninstall properties. And for the ProVersion keeping the program control on a server for the ProVersion only? (I thought everything was on the local drive) Not sure about that one, (It doesn't even make sense why it would be different for the free version) perhaps the moderator (or someone) can clear that one up for the pair of us. Good luck... and save your money, perhaps you can afford the ProVersion in no time...Ride a bike, save some gas $...LOL...
