Ahhhh! Finally an answer. Not a particularly useful answer but an answer nonetheless. First let me thank you for your non-hostile, non-troll-like tone. That certainly lends credibility to your post and raises you a notch above the many trolls that exist online these days. So, you say that this is a simple question to answer. Then why haven't you answered it?

If you'd bother to look at the download page you would see that there never was any version numbered 188.8.131.52 so the answer to your question is - you can't upgrade from that version to ZD 7.x
You would also read that there are version numbers in my config files that range from 0.9.1 to 184.108.40.20699. Hence my OP.
I want to upgrade to 7 but I read:
"Zimbra Desktop 1.0.x can not be upgraded to Zimbra Desktop 7.x" so I need to know.
You also neglected, no doubt in your zeal, to answer the question
Meanwhile, since no one here seems either able or willing to help, I reread the FAQ for 7.1 and I found:
What can I back up before installing in case of disaster?
So the implication is that 1.0.x cannot be upgraded DIRECTLY. Is there an INDIRECT way to upgrade 1.9.x perhaps? Or is an upgrade not possible with anything less than 2.0?
Current installations of Zimbra Desktop 2.0.x can be upgraded to 7.1 directly.
Zimbra Desktop 1.0.x can not be upgraded to Zimbra Desktop 7.1.
As for backup files, I exported all my accounts. According to the manual there should be data files in C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Zimbra\Zimbra Desktop. There is no such directory. I copied all the program directory files. Is there any other data that would be needed by a clean installation of 7.1?
This time, how about letting someone who knows what they are talking about answer. Fair enough?
