Since I asked this question originally, and my good friend Bob Hanson more
or less told me the same thing, it is good to see the logical outcome of
trying after I was warned. 8) Let us hope that in future releases the
developers at least allow us to do upgrades, but at the present time, it
does NOT seem something one would recommend.
