Faq easy way to switch from one version of PLS Toolobx to another
Can you describe an easy way to switch from one version of PLS_Toolbox to another?
The easiest way to switch between versions (or separate installations) of PLS_Toolbox is to use the
- Make the main folder of the version you want to install the Current Directory in Matlab.
- Close all GUIs and clear all objects using the following commands at the Matlab command line (WARNING: This will clear all variables in the Matlab Workspace):
>> close all force >> clear classes
- Run evriinstall from the command line with the 'silent' switch to avoid the installation splash screen:
>> evriinstall silent
- Enter your license code if prompted. I some cases your existing license code will work so you may not be prompted to enter a new one.
To switch back simply follow these steps for the folder/version you want to use. The
evriinstall function takes care of removing old versions from the Matlab path.
You may find that DataSet objects you create in a newer version may not be backwards compatible to older versions of PLS_Toolbox. In this case, you will see a warning "Loaded dataset object newer than present constructor.". To correct this, see our FAQ item on this issue.
