Installation/Uninstallation

Unread post by Harrison Pratt » 10 Apr 2020 17:09

Does the 9x installer overwrite an existing installation or add another one? I decided to uninstall 904 and start over and was surprised to find that IOBit Uninstaller found 3 different installations of 9x ... Yikes!

Uninstalled all 3 instances of 9x, and 8x; reinstalled 8x and 904. Behaves the same when changing from one open project to another, freezing the system.

I believe we have separate installation "entries" for each build, because we have many people here at PDC which have several builds installed in each their directory. And therefore they can uninstall each of them separately. You will most likely install new builds "on top of" the old one, and in that case it would be better with a single installation entry.

If you have several builds installed in the same directory uninstalling any of them will uninstall/ruin them all.
