Reverting to a Previous Version of a DXLab Application

If you have version x.y.z of a DXLab application installed, then the the files applicationxyz.exe and application.exe will be present in that application's folder, where application.exe is one of

If x.y.z is the most recent version of a particular application, then the file application.exe is a copy of the file applicationxyz.exe. For example, if the current version of Commander is 11.2.3, then CI-V Commander.exe is a copy of CI-V Commander1123.exe

Whenever the Launcher upgrades a new application to a new version, say a.b.c, it

  1. deletes the existing application.exe

  2. downloads the new applicationabc.exe

  3. makes a copy of applicationabc.exe and names that copy application.exe

Thus when the Launcher is directed to start an application, it does so by directing Windows to run application.exe.

Reverting to a previous version x.y.z of an application can thus be accomplished by

  1. terminating the application if it is running
  2. directing Windows Explorer to navigate to the application's folder and
    1. deleteing the application.exe file

    2. making a copy of applicationzyx.exe and naming that copy application.exe

For example, to revert from Commander version 11.2.3 to 11.2.0,

  1. terminate Commander
  2. direct Windows Explorer to navigate to your Commander folder and

    1. delete the CI-V Commander.exe file

    2. make a copy of CI-V Commander1120.exe and name that copy CI-V Commander.exe

When the Launcher then starts Commander, version 11.2.0 of Commander would run.

To return to Commander version 11.2.3,

  1. terminate Commander
  2. direct Windows Explorer to navigate to your Commander folder and

    1. delete the CI-V Commander.exe file

    2. make a copy of CI-V Commander1123.exe and name that copy CI-V Commander.exe

When the Launcher then starts Commander, version 11.2.3 of Commander would run.
