I just downloaded PAF Companion 5.1.3 last night and it installed directly
over my PAF Companion 5.1 without removing the old one first. No problems
with the install at all. But I had trouble downloading it from
familysearch.org. I couldn't download it with Netscape 4.79 and had to go
to Internet Explorer to get it. And the upgrade is 5.999 megabytes in
size, not 1.99 as they say.

BTW, I don't see anything different about Companion 5.1.3 and 5.1 The
reports are all the same as I remember in Companion 5.1. When you click on
Help/What's New in Companion 5.1.3 it gives a list of "new" reports, but
all those were in Companion 5.1, if I remember correctly. Has anyone found
anything really new in Companion 5.1.3 over Companion 5.1? (I'm writing
Companion 5.1 and 5.1.3 since some people confuse PAF Companion with PAF
itself.) Maybe Companion 5.1.3 just has bug fixes in it.
