Occasionally it may be necessary to reinstall PartyCAD to take advantage of new program features. Also a reinstall may be necessary if you get too far behind in updating or if your computer system has trouble running the currently installed version. Reinstalling is not a big deal and will not remove any of your PartyCAD projects. All a reinstall does is refresh and reregister files that come with PartyCAD. The files that you have created using the program are unaffected.
In some rare cases PartyCAD may not work after a reinstall. If this happens, do the following:
1. Uninstall PartyCAD 12 and any earlier versions of PartyCAD from your system. Use the Control Panel to do this.
2. Look for the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\PartyCAD12 on your computer. If the folder does not exist, the uninstall was successful. If the folder does exist, it may contain one or two files that the uninstall failed to remove. Delete these files as they may trip up the reinstall.
3, Look for the folder C:\Users\user\AppData\Local replacing user with the name of the user. You may have to set Windows to Show Hidden Files and Folders to get to this location. Once there, you will see a subfolder called PartyCAD. Remove or rename this folder. This will cause PartyCAD to forget your settings, registration data and other items which may be stopping the program from working.
4. Restart your system.
5. Follow the instructions in the box above to reinstall PartyCAD 12.
