I am reading thru the update instructions and trying to make a concurrent install so I don't mess up my spreadsheets on a failed install (did this last time tried to update & had to revert,lost all formulas)
There are two ways you can do this.
You can copy and paste your entire SC folder to a backup drive.
Then install the upgrade\update of SC to your current C:\SierraChart folder.

Or you can create a new folder on your C:\ and name the folder different than your current working copy of SC.
Then copy all the contents of your current working copy of SC into the newly named folder.
Startup SC by using SierraChart_64.exe from within the newly named folder.

Then go to help on the toolbar and download the current version of SC.
Install this current version into the newly named folder.
Once the installation is finished.

Right-click on SierraChart_64.exe, and create a new shortcut.
Rename the shortcut to whatever you want and copy it to your desktop.
Now you have two working copies of SC. Your original copy and the new install for testing.

I currently have multiple install of SC. Screen shot attached.
