ViceVersa PRO 2 build 2015 Released
Free update for registered ViceVersa PRO 2 customers.

How to Update to ViceVersa PRO 2 build 2015

From a previous build of ViceVersa PRO 2
- You can update to ViceVersa PRO 2 build 2015 for free.
- Download new installer from and install it over the old version (=in the same folder, usually c:\program files\ViceVersa PRO 2\).
- Do not uninstall the previous version of ViceVersa. If you uninstall the previous version of ViceVersa, you will need to re-enter the registration code.
- If VVLauncher is running, stop it first. Once the new installation is finished, VVLauncher needs to be setup again. If VVLauncher is installed as a Windows Service, uninstall it first.

From ViceVersa PRO 1.3.1 or ViceVersa PLUS
