How to upgrade from version 1.x to 2.x

Download Daily Bible and Prayer 2. Version 2 of Daily Bible and Prayer will install on the same system as version 1, but will not overwrite your existing version of Daily Bible and Prayer. Version 2 installs into a different directory and maintains user data files independently from version 1. This will allow you to evaluate version 2 before uninstalling version 1. The first time you run Daily Bible and Prayer 2, it will look for version 1 data files and offer to import your Bible reading plan and Prayer Tracker into version 2 if they are found. This will not erase the data from version 1; version 2 will make its own copy of the information.

Please note that while Daily Bible and Prayer 2 can import your data from version 1, version 1 can not access version 2 files.
