latest version SNAFU

By Biggles - 3/15/2013 6:46:19 PM

The version 2.5.2 released on 1st Feb does not work (for me anyway). I did the automatic upgrade as instructed and ended up with the SkyDemon messages screen blinking at me and refusing to go away when I tried to close it. It was saying I needed to download the latest Southern Africa maps for this version to work..what the hell? Oh and all I could see was Southern Africa and Setup>Charts was not working either. Am I alone in this? Seems so or I am missing where the others have posted.
I also tried uninstalling ALL Sky Demon versions and installing afresh from the download page. Same result. Southern Africa and nowt else.
This version has been available since 1st February so either its my computer suddenly not liking SD or this bug has developed and anyone who tried to upgrade will get the same result - a useless broken version. I have reverted to the previous version until I get some answers.
Cannot contact SD office as it's the weekend so anyone on the forums any thoughts?

Thanks anyway Eric...and thankyou Tim - deleting my folder did the trick. You are a gentleman and a scholar.
