Installing the Latest Update of The Journal

  1. Download the update.
  2. Make sure The Journal is NOT running.
  3. Install the update.

NOTE: If you are updating a USB Flash drive or cloud folder installation of The Journal, you will need to check that option again, and browse to select the proper folder.


NOTE: The Journal uses Encryption

This is a feature of The Journal. đŸ™‚

However, some antivirus software will consider The Journal’s use of encryption as a potential problem and prevent The Journal from updating its files (your files) on your hard drive. When this happens, The Journal will report that it is open in “Read Only” mode. You may also see an error reported because of this (“SQLite3 Error 14 – unable to open database file”).

To fix this, you will need to “make an exception for Journal8.exe” with your antivirus software. The specifics of how to do this will vary, but that’s generally what it’s called. My apologies for the inconvenience.
