I didn't read the instruction "Move (not copy) the Configure.xml file to a safe place. Saving this file will allow you to roll back to using version 1 should you run into problems," so you know this didn't turn out well for me.

Liked that v.2 is able to decode P25 p1 digital without using a program such as DSD+, and wanted to try the other improvements.

But my experience was that signal health was nowhere near what I was used to, despite using the same RTL-SDR and antenna and making program adjustments, and had some other issues, so I wanted to roll back.

Fortunately, I had v.1 on an old Dell desktop running XP Media Center Edition Version 2002 with Service Pack 3, 32-bit. I went to C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Unitrunker, and uploaded "Configure XML Document 4 kB," "Colorwords XML Document 1 kB" and "Unitrunker.xml 172" [172 being the highest number] to a USB thumb drive.

After deleting as many Unitrunker folders and files as I could, using Windows Uninstall, CCleaner and AVS4You Registry Cleaner, and restarting my laptop running W10 Home, Build 18363 64-bit, I downloaded v.! from the Internet and inserted the thumb drive. At the prompt, "Preparing UniTrunker First Time Install," I checked "Upgrade -- find existing configuration data," browsed for the folder containing Configure.xml that I created on the thumb drive and clicked okay. No matter what I tried, I got the message "One of more files could not be copied. Check directory selection and file permissions."

Eventually, I chose new install, and then renamed the newly created configure.xml file, and added the configure.xml file from the thumb drive. Did not restore my settings.

Any suggestions?
