What is the difference between the free Standard Edition and the Deluxe Edition? Both install from Legacy8Setup, as does the update file.

There is only one Legacy installation file (LegacySetup.exe). The only difference between Standard and Deluxe is that the deluxe features have not been unlocked.  A Deluxe user has paid for the program and is sent a customer number to unlock the them.  Free Standard edition users don't buy, so they don't get a customer number. However, if at a future time they do purchase the Deluxe Edition, they will be sent a customer number to unlock the Deluxe features in the program they are using. There is no need to install a new program. Please see How to unlock Legacy Deluxe.

The Deluxe has some extra features not accessible in the Standard, i.e., the new SourceWriter, Mapping, several more reports (all the basic reports are available in the Standard Edition).  See http://www.legacyfamilytree.com/DownloadLegacy.asp for a comparison. A comprehensive list of the Deluxe features can be found at http://www.legacyfamilytree.com/DeluxeEdition.asp.

You might want to download the free Legacy Standard Edition and see what you think. It's not a "trial" - many of our users have never purchased the Deluxe Edition because the Standard Edition meets their needs. There's no time out and no limitations to the data that you can enter.

To download Legacy Family Tree, please visit http://www.legacyfamilytree.com/DownloadLegacy.asp. There are two download links on this page: The Legacy Standard (free) link bypasses our online store. The Legacy Deluxe (from $29.95) link takes you into our online store.

In addition, the LegacySetup file is also used to update Legacy. It is a "smart" file because when it detects that Legacy 8 is already installed the wording on the first screen changes from

Legacy
Welcome to Legacy Setup program. This program will install Legacy on your computer.

To

Legacy Update
Welcome to Legacy Setup program. This program will install Legacy Update on your computer.

Again, it's the same file, just different wording.  By the way the changes to LegacySetup.exe are cumulative and contain all of the updates and enhancements back to the initial release of Legacy Family Tree.
