  • Updating to versions 6.1 of Foxit PhantomPDF Std and Foxit Reader

    I am unable to update these programs via the Foxit Updater. How best should I proceed? Download the entire new programs, uninstall old programs, install new programs? Will I need to manually activate the new programs or will my existing license keys be automatically transferred?

    Same problem. Foxit Reader update "manager" doesn't find any available update (for v6.1). Maybe the server is busy? but doesn't give a reason or error msg, just finds no updates. If in a hurry, could d/l the entire 6.1 installer, then install over the top of existing version. Though "over the top" installations are supposed to work - for the reader - AFAIK, if I have any software that's several versions older than newest release (like from v5 to v6), I usually uninstall then do clean installs. Most times, you may get away w/ not doing this, but when installations for SOME software fail, time to clean up the mess will pale in comparison to uninstalling 1st.

      When I checked for updates via the help menu today, the update was mentioned.
      I installed the update and have now version when I start the program.

      So far so good

      HOWEVER !
      When I try to open a pdf-file via the FILE-tab and OPEN, the new PhantomPDF crashes !!
      This happens every time I try to open a PDF file this way.
      There is something wrong with this version.
