By the way, Happy New Year!


Last year, I upgraded my GirlFriend 3.1 to GirlFriendPlus1.0
(marketing name: Fiancee1.0). Recently I upgraded Fiancee1.0 to

***** BUG WARNING PLEASE READ !! ********
Wife 1.0 has an undocumented bug. If you try to install Mistress 1.1
before uninstalling Wife 1.0, Wife 1.0 will delete MS**Money** files
before doing the uninstall itself. Then Mistress 1.1 will refuse to
install, claiming insufficient resources.
