I want to go back to an older version of inFlow, can I?

Note: We will sunset inFlow v2 on July 31, 2024. This means inFlow v2 will no longer be offered for download and we will no longer be hosting its Knowledge Base and support articles.

The short answer is yes. It’s definitely possible and we have the installers for our older versions available for download. The longer answer is that in order to go back to a previous version you must have the database from BEFORE you updated since a database cannot be reverted to an older version. Whenever you update to a newer version of inFlow the system should prompt you to save and it will save your backup with the version number it’s in. That is the file you must use in order to restore your data so if you updated to a newer version and entered information, you will have to re-enter it once you’ve reverted.

To revert to a previous version of inFlow please:

  1. Backup your database! Go to Main Menu > General > Backup Data.
  2. Uninstall inFlow by going to your Windows START menu and clicking Control Panel (on Windows XP go to Add/Remove Programs in the panel, for Vista or Windows 7 go to Programs and Features, for Windows 8 hit your Windows Key + X, then P to bring up the Control Panel, and then Uninstall a program). Find inFlow in the list and choose to “uninstall.”
  3. Download the appropriate installer from the list below and run the installer to install your preferred version of inFlow.
  4. Once the program’s back up and running go to Main Menu > General > Restore Data and choose the file reverenced above (the backup from before you updated).

Voila! You’re back in the older version of inFlow.
