Default Update and database problem

I have a contact program that has an attached database. It works and all is fine there. When I made an updated version of that application I included the database again. So after applying the update the old database was erased by the new one that was in the update. Which I guess makes sense.

An issue arises when I don't include a database in the updated version. The old database just gets erased. You would think it would just leave it alone so that I could continue to use it.

I've looked for several hours and can't find a solution to this problem. I would like a user to be able to update my application and have the user's original database still be there. Is there any way to do this?

Thanks for any suggestions.

I think that the reason why you have not got an answer is that you have made it too difficult to provide one...

  • The program is an Air program?
  • You are releasing an updated version of the program, and want to somehow keep some/all (which one of those please) of the information contained within the old one?

Also: do you have any code?

What kind of database is it? Have you tried just adding new items to the database instead of replacing the entire database file?
