Version 2.3 Clean Install

I tried the upgrade route from 2.2.5 to 2.3 rc1, as I recall, and could not get the thing to work at all. So I sanitized my computer, i.e. deleted the Awasu folders here and there and cleaned the registry. I installed 2.3 Gold and got the following message: "You are running 2.3 but your data files are from 2.2.5." One thing I've found very annoying is the lack of automatic database upgrade from one rev to another. GEA

Starting from 2.2.5, Awasu stores your data files in a different location so if you just deleted the Awasu installation directory, your old 2.2.5 data files are probably still there which is what it's finding and complaining about. Check the documentation here and make sure you clean out these directories as well if you want a clean install.

Your installation is automatically upgraded if you only use the general releases (2 digits in the version number e.g. 2.2 or 2.3). It's only if you run betas (3 digits in the version number) you have to do the upgrade yourself. Even then, it's generally just a case of running <tt>admin.exe</tt> and maybe deleting one or two files.
