Description

Code Libraries from older versions of Alpha Anywhere can be copied into the current version of Alpha Anywhere. This is done by copying the Code Libraries from the older version of Alpha Anywhere to the directory where Code Libraries are stored in the current version of Alpha Anywhere.

  1. Determine the source folder. Open the older version of Alpha Anywhere. Go to the Interactive Window and execute the following command to find out where the old Code Libraries are stored:

    ? A5_getCodeLibraryFolder()
    = "C:\Users\Sarah\AppData\Roaming\Alpha Software\Alpha Five Version 11\code_libraries"
  2. Find the destination folder. Open the current version of Alpha Anywhere. Go to the Interactive window and execute the same command as above to find out where to copy the old Code Libraries.

    ? a5_getcodelibraryfolder()
    = "C:\Users\Sarah\AppData\Roaming\Alpha Software\Alpha Anywhere Version 12\code_libraries"
  3. Open both directories. Copy the Code Libraries from the source folder to the destination folder.
