I was running OK on SynchBackPro v22.214.171.124 (en), but made the mistake of updating this when I saw an alert to say a new version was available.
I just didn't take enough note that Windows XP is no longer supported, so went for the update.
The latest update appears to be v126.96.36.199, but this failed to update on an HP Workstation running a fully patched version of Windows XP Pro 32bit.
The error message was as follows:
I elected to Abort, following which there was a message saying that the upgrade was rolling back the changes.C:\Program Files\2BrightSparks\SynchBackPro\EASendMailObj.dll
Unable to register the DLL/OCX: RegSvr32 failed with exit code 0x5
[ABORT] [RETRY] [IGNORE]
However, the Desktop Icon was deleted, and when I ran SynchBackPro by clicking its icon within Program Files, it is now saying that I am running the latest version, namely v188.8.131.52.
I am unwilling to use what could be a broken installation of SynchBackPro to back up my vital Data, so would like to re-install the last working version that was compatible with Windows XP, which appears to be v184.108.40.206.
But there is no Download link that I can find to get this last version, so I am currently stuck with key Data only now residing in one place, because I was not able to run the daily backup synchronisation as I would normally do at close of play each night.
I appreciate that Windows XP is no longer supported, but I think 2BrightSparks should either post a Download Link for the last version of SynchBackPro that was OK with Windows XP, or the Update should be fixed so that it does roll back properly if someone with Windows XP tries to update, or the update should be set so as not to run if it detects the operating system in use is Windows XP.
This is quite urgent, because I am in the middle of updating things to Windows 10, so wanted to synchronise Data to the 6 locations on my Network where I mirror my Data. I could do this from another XP machine running v220.127.116.11 but it would mean having to set up new Tasks, and remembering that the Data flow is from Right to Left, rather than from Left to Right.
I'd much rather do this from my main machine, but that appears to have a suspect installation of SynchBackPro at the moment.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
