Out of beta, but is it really?

Is 2017 the exception where the program is relatively stable early on? I don't have to upgrade. I refuse to run win10. I have one win 8.1 machine and the rest Win 7. 2014 works on these, except for the bugs that are perpetually ignored. I also use a free version of another imaging software that I actually could do fine with.

But I do like to upgrade now and then. So the question I asking for trouble?

Did they ever fix the scheduling bugs?

So far, it's running quite stable for me.  If you do come in from 2014, I'd start clean though.  I now it should upgrade over the top, but just seems like the upgrades from 2014 to 2015/2016 brought along the same trouble.  Perhaps take an image first, then run the cleantool to nuke 2014, reboot, download the trial of 2017 and install fresh using the "run as admin" tool and give it a spin.  If you don't like it, then you can restore your last image and keep chugging along as if nothing ever happened.

I agree that a clean install is the best way to go. After unistalling ATI 2014 abunant caution would suggest that you run the ATI 2014 Cleanup Tool. While I believe that ATI 2017 will read and restore backups created with ATI 2014, you should creat new back-up tasks once you install ATI 2017. After running ATI 2017 it should find all the backups created by ATI 2014, and they will probably have lost their "configuatiion" (not a big worry as you will not be creating new backups with them).

Hi and thanks for your comments. I learned long ago to uninstall and clean up before installing a new version.  I usually receive an update offer, and this year is no exception. I guess I'll give it a shot. Thanks again.
