However if you're using an older version of MPMM (prior to 1st March 2007) and you now use Windows Vista, then you will need to take these steps to download and install the latest version of MPMM for it to function correctly:
- Uninstall MPMM by selecting "add/remove programs" in the Windows Control Panel
- Download the latest MPMM trial version from www.MPMM.com and install it
- Register and activate the software using your original registration information.
Note for MPMM Professional Edition users: Any Custom Methodologies you had in the old MPMM version will be retained in the new version.
