Updating the executable files:
If you downloaded the full installation file already, rather than
reinstalling the whole thing you may update only the executable files
SOLEX120.EXE and EXORB80.EXE to the latest version available, and then replace the old files in the folder where you installed them.
After updating the executables, help files should also be updated, downloading the file SOLHELP.ZIP, and decompressing it inside
the subdirectory (folder) HLP of the SOLEX folder. The updated executable are ZIP compressed as well.
