Helly Everyone,
has anyone experience or information about problems with changing from OE 1.7 to OE Pro 2.7.
I downloaded several newspapers with OE 1.7. Recently I copied the project files to OE Pro 2.7 and tried to continue downloading the modified files of my newspapers, but this didn`t work.
Thank you,

I would suggest you simply to install 2.7 version to the same directory where 1.7 was installed. All Projects should appear there with no problem.

Thanks for the answer, but it didn`t work. The offline explorer still cannot update the directories. Do you have any other ideas?

OK. Open the new version Options dialog | Advanced | Directories (File Locations) and see which directory is in the Projects, Templates and Maps directory. Then quit Offline Explorer Pro and copy the following files from the previous installed version to the above directory:

webdown.dat (Projects list)
template.dat (Templates)
all files with .map extension.

Please let me know if this helps.
