New version of REXYGEN (2.50.8) is out and all users can upgrade for free. The instructions below are valid for upgrading from REX 2.10.x. If you are upgrading from REXYGEN 2.50.7 / REX 2.50.x, there is a separate guide for you.
In any case, it is recommended to backup the content of the /rex/rexcore directory on your target device prior to upgrading. If you do not know how to do it, don’t worry. In such a case the only thing you might need are the licensing keys and you can always find these in your user accout at licensing.rexygen.com.
It is mandatory to upgrade both the development tools on your desktop/laptop PC and the runtime modules on your target device(s).
Install the newest version of development tools. Only Windows 7/8/10 is supported.
As long as you have at least one target device with version 2.10.8 or older, you should keep the development tools 2.10.8 installed. As soon as you upgrade all your target devices to 2.50.8 (or at least 2.50.x), you can uninstall version 2.10.8.
You can have multiple versions of development tools installed at the same time. You just have to pay attention to which version you are running and opening your projects in. The REXYGEN Tray Monitor utility is a big help in this case.
These are the most important changes and known problems which you should know before upgrading from 2.10.x to 2.50.8:
