I was checking the manual, and all menus and couldn't find the option.
or maybe it has been answered already..

When there is a Zuwsi update, like now the 204, how do we update the program with the new routes and timetables?
Hi, sorry for not getting back sooner, i have been very busy lately, moving home, plus also started a new train program that will display all the trains on the London Underground live, but hey thats another
program entirely :-)

You will have to wait for me to update the database in Zusi Route Finder, i will post an update on here as soon as i am able to do that.

In the meantime just make sure you backup your database now and again using the menu option... Database > Backup...

Cheers

Neil

There are links to a new release about to be posted, however, if you are a current user of Zusi Route Finder then please read the following BEFORE uninstalling your current version and switching to the new version....

Make sure you have....

1. Backed up or have copies of any pictures you have added to the Zusi Route Finder Gallery folder.
If you are not sure where that folder is you can easily find it using Zusi Route Finder... start
the program then under the Gallery menu select: Open the User Gallery folder in Explorer...

2. If you have added Notes to routes, or Bookmarked some of them then this is your chance to back them
up before uninstalling your current version.
The first thing to remember is that Zusi Route Finder has a built in Backup and Restore which we will
cover in a moment and it will try to transfer your old Notes and Bookmarks to the new version of Route
Finder however this may not always be possible, for example if a route is no longer available or has been moved to another folder then Route Finder may not be able to find it.
So if you have any important Notes that you definitely do not want to lose then you should may be copy
them and paste them into text files outside of Route Finder before continuing.
You can copy the text in any Note quite easily by clicking with the mouse into the Note, then right
click and select... Select All, then right click again and select Copy... you can then paste the text
into any other program.
Okay now to Backup your current Notes and Bookmarks.... in Route Finder under the Database menu select:
Backup... a save file dialog box will appear asking you for a name for the backup, make sure you pick
a folder (such as your Documents folder) and a file name you can remember and click the Save button.

3. You can now uninstall the old version of Zusi Route Finder.

4. Install the latest version of Zusi Route Finder and start it up... but do not create any Bookmarks or
write any new Notes yet. You need to restore your old Notes etc first...

5. Under the Database menu select: Restore... a select backup file dialog box will open, find the backup
file you saved from the previous version of route finder (that you created in step 2 above) and click Open.
A Restore Backup Options dialog will appear... you can read more about all the options on this in the
Zusi Route Finder help manual but for now we need to make sure of a couple of settings...
Make sure the 'Restore All...' radio button is selected and then in the box below that make sure that
'Overwrite with data in backup' is selected.
Click the Restore Backup button.

Route Finder will attempt to restore your backup data, after which an Info dialog box will pop up telling
you how many routes were successfully restored and how many could not be restored.

As mentioned previously the main reason for not being able to restore a route is because that route is no longer available in Zusi or has had other changes such as being moved to
another timetable folder.

Click the Close button on the Restore dialog box.

You can now have a look and see what routes have had there data restored.

And then start using Zusi Route Finder again!

Enjoy.
