To upgrade from versions 8.00 through 8.08 to version 8.09,
download and run the self-extracting installer
Upgrading from MotoCalc 7 to 8.09
If you originally installed MotoCalc 7 in the
download MotoCalc 8
and install it in the directory suggested by the installer.
If you originally installed MotoCalc 7 in a directory other
than the installer-suggested location, make sure the directory path
it is installed in ends with MotoCalc7
(rename it if necessary), and then
and install MotoCalc 8 in a
corresponding directory "next to" the MotoCalc 7 directory. For example,
if MotoCalc 7 is installed in
C:\Program Files\MotoCalc7, then install
MotoCalc 8 into
The first time you run MotoCalc 8,
it will detect MotoCalc 7, and import any data that appears in
MotoCalc 7's database that doesn't appear in MotoCalc
8's database (i.e. any motors, speed controls, etc. that you added yourself).
Warning: The update facility will
only copy a component from the old MotoCalc database to the new
one if the component exists in the old one, and not in the new one (for
example, if you've added a motor in MotoCalc 7, that motor will
be copied to MotoCalc 8). The update utility will
not copy changes you've made to existing components (for example,
if you've filled in the weight for a motor whose weight was not supplied).
You will need to transfer such changes manually.
