Hello gretl community. I'm running gretl on a Windows XP machine
contented. My computer guru suggests that I upgrade to Windows 7, and says
that all of my software will transfer seamlessly. Although I'm sure she's
right about a lot of my software (MS Office, for example), I'd like to be
assured that I'll have no trouble reinstalling gretl. What has been your
experience with an upgrade like this?
There shouldn't be any problem with current gretl on Windows 7.
We're going to release gretl 1.9.9 shortly; if you want to reinstall
before then I would recommend using the current "snapshot" rather
than gretl 1.9.8. (The snapshot is sometimes unstable, but right now
it includes several bug fixes and -- to my knowledge -- nothing
that's likely to cause problems.)
If you know, I'd like the same assurances regarding Exp, MatLab,
R should be fine; no idea about the others.
