New version of the Mailing List Assistant

When you get a new version of the Mailing List Assistant, you have to pick up the data of the previous version.

Beware! Do not just run the setup program .exe. Your database will be overwritten and cause you to lose the mailing lists you set up! To prevent this , you should first Split the mailing list database, so that you have the data separated from the software - if you had not done so before.

To install a new version

  1. Split the mailing list database - if you had not done so before.
  2. Backup the mailinglist[xx]_BE.mdb or .accdb file
  3. Rename the mailinglist[xx]_BE.mdb or .accdb file to mailinglist[xx]_BE.mdb.bak or .accdb.bak 
  4. Download run mailinglist[xx].exe The file can be downloaded from http://www.4tops.com/downloadmailinglist.htm
  5. Run mailinglist[xx].exe. This will overwrite the current mailinglist[xx].mdb or .accdb file.
  6. Open the Mailing List Assistant.
  7. For the second time, Split the mailing list database. You now have the new software, but the mailing list data is not your own.
  8. Close the Mailing List Assistant.
  9. Delete the mailinglist[xx]_BE.mdb or .accdb file
  10. Rename the mailinglist[xx]_BE.mdb.bak or .accdb.bak file to mailinglist[xx]_BE.mdb or .accdb (= remove .bak)

You now have the new version of the Mailing List Assistant connected to your old data.
