To users who have installed previous GREET.Net versions (e.g., 2019):

Although a previous GREET.Net version (e.g., 2019) may be able to load the latest data file in this release, it is highly recommended to upgrade the software to GREET 2020. To do that:

  • Uninstall all previous versions of GREET.Net through “Control Panel”→ “Programs and Features”
  • Delete (or move to other places if the following files contain your modifications) “default.greet” file, “Mapping” folder, and “Scenarios” folder under your “Greet\Data” folder, normally in C:\Users\[Your name]\Documents\Greet\Data
  • Download and install GREET® 2020 .Net software
  • Important: when installing GREET.Net, Windows may prompt the following message "Microsoft Defender SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk". To continue, click "More info" and then "Run anyway" to complete the installation
  • Click "GREET® 2020" icon on your desktop, and you are ready to use GREET.Net

  • If the old “default.greet” file you move to other places contains your modifications, it is possible to merge those changes to the new “default.greet” file. Please refer to “Data Merging” section of the “GREET-Manual.pdf” (Menu Bar→"About"→"User Manuals")
