Newsgator has come up with an update to their Outlook RSS client. As I usually do, as soon as I got the notice, I went to the site and downloaded it. Unfortunately, the service is tightly integrated with their online services, and I have an outdated package (it is the one they gave me as a reviewer). Although it doesn’t expire until September 2006, apparently it isn’t valid with this new version, and so it refused to work. I uninstalled it an reinstalled version 2 again, and it worked fine, but then I lost all my feeds. Luckily the folder names helped me find all the feeds I had, but it was time-consuming. Be sure to read all the information first before you upgrade. Hopefully you won’t face the same problems.
As a side note, it’d probably be a good idea to backup your feed listing to an OPML file every so often.
