Recently I’ve received a lot of “bug reports” caused by incorrect update from version 1.1 to 1.2.
Common wrong scenarios are “overwrite old EVE Mentat with new one” or “copy database from old EVE Mentat to new”. Both these methods give a crash on EVE Mentat start up.
Correct way to update is:
- Unzip EVE Mentat 1.2 to new or empty folder (create clean copy).
- Run this clean copy. You should see welcome screen with EULA and three buttons (see image below).
- Accept EULA and choose Import existing database option.
- In the new dialog select path to your old copy of EVE Mentat and press Ok.
Note, path should point to EVE Mentat’s root folder, for instance d:\Games\EVE Mentat 1.1 .
