Uninstalling Wandora

Wandora has no uninstaller at the moment. As Wandora does not store files outside the Wandora folder, removing the folder uninstalls the application.

Upgrading Wandora

We publish new releases of Wandora time to time. If you have already installed Wandora and want to install new version, either install new version to new directory or first remove the old version completely and then install new files into the directory. Don't install Wandora over an existing older installation.

Before you remove the old Wandora installation, think, if you want to manually copy some settings from the old configuration file (build/resources/conf/options.xml). Also, if you have used Wandora's Waiana service, copy stored topic maps and Waiana options (build/resources/server/waiana) to your new installation.
