I do not know if you can update from CHIEF ARCHITECT V184.108.40.206 right to Chief_Architect_v220.127.116.11 cause I recently found this 18.104.22.168 update.But if you can always create a restore point at each install.If you want to try.If any does that and finds it is successful plzzz let me know so i can update site TYVM.
Tip of the the torrent. I often try to update from the site of the program and many times it works.
I just create a restore point which I often do installing any program,and if the update doesnt work I just restore and good as new again.
