VikRestaurants Updater

If you have purchased a copy of VikRestaurants you can download for free the updater to the new version 1.7. You will be asked to enter the order number that you can find in the order e-Mail received for downloading VikRestaurants.


With the updater you will not lose your contents created with the previous versions of VikRestaurants but in case you edited some PHP or CSS files, you might lose those modifications.
Your translation files will not be touched by the Updater, just the .ini English file will be overwritten with the new definitions. Almost all the PHP files will be replaced so please upgrade only if you don't care about losing modifications to the code.
