Beta versions of GPMAW represent intermediate stages of the development of the GPMAW program. As such they are not guaranteed to be stable (i.e. you may experience more errors to occur), but on the other hand they should represent improvements in previous versions, both with regard to more functionality and a minimization of errors. However, as new features are included in the program, this sometimes leads to incompatibility in other areas.
If you install a beta version of GPMAW we would like you to report all errors to email@example.com - remember to include the beta version number reported in the title bar.
License: Beta versions of GPMAW are covered by the standard license. This also means that you must have an 'upgradeable' version (less than 18 month old) in order to make it function.
Installation of beta versions:
The beta versions are not supplied with an installation program unless specified below, and you have to manually to install the program. This is done by replacing the file gpmaw3.exe in the \gpmaw\bin\ directory with the downloaded gpmaw3.exe file.
Note: it is recommended that you make a backup of your old file before overwriting it with the new beta version.
The 'gpmaw' directory is usually located directly in C:\Program Files\, but may alternatively be located in the main C:\ directory.
