Sometimes it is useful to save older versions of either DairyMod or the SGS Pasture Model in order to reproduce results obtained with those versions. The installer doesn’t support side-by-side versions, but there is an easy workaround.
Here are the instructions for DairyMod:
- Go to the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\IMJ\DairyMod 5
- Copy the file ‘DairyMod.exe’
- Paste it somewhere convenient. I suggest renaming it – for example, if it is version 5.3.13 then maybe call it DairyMod 5.3.13.exe
Use the same approach for the SGS Pasture Model, where the system folder is C:\Program Files (x86)\IMJ\SGS 5.
I do, however, encourage people to make the move to the latest version of the model.
