VERSION 3 IS NOT YET AVAILABLE TO THE MASSES.
If you need to upgrade to fix a bug, or are an adventurous soul, feel free to proceed.
If you have a functioning install, which does everything you need, please hold off on doing any upgrade just yet. New versions come out about daily right now. :)
This page has instructions for installing the latest Repetrel software and associated applications, drivers, and environment on a new Windows platform, or over an older install.
These steps should each be done in order, and run as administrator.
