Bitmap2LCD Software Update

From Version V3.0c  Standard Edition, the software can be automatically updated by the user.

Note : Sometimes corporate firewalls are blocking the update process. In such cases, contact us by email.

At the right side In the update main menu, you can check the latest available Version, and opt to download and install the update. The currently running version installs the update. The current version will not be uninstalled. As the configuration settings and the projects of the various versions are located in separate folders in the my Documents folder, you can run the different versions installed, one session at the time.

From Version V3.1 the configuration settings and the projects of the current version are copied into the settings folder of the updated version during the SW update process.

Re-installing or uninstalling Bitmap2LCD

Bitmap2LCD is a tool for programming small Graphic LCDs in embedded systems.

Re-installing or uninstalling Bitmap2LCD

Up to Version V2.8a (b8) , the folder where your personal tool configuration and all your projects were saved, was’nt automatically deleted when running the uninstall task. This has changed since.

in the Documents folder : see folder Bitmap2LCD inits

If you have an anterior version and want for any reason to uninstall the software, or reinstall it completely, you can just delete this Bitmap2LCD inits folder and all its content.

At next application launch, a new default folder will be created.

You may also find older Bitmap2LCD inits XX-XX-XX folders, if you clicked on “quit and restore factory settings” in the file main menu at some time in the past. ( These folders are just config backups in case you need a configuration recovery )

The Bitmap2LCD Project default project folder in the Documents folder will not be automatically deleted by uninstalling the software.
