Updating IDE on Win10


I’m trying to upgrade to IDE 2.5.0 on Windows 10. I want to replace the previous IDE by installing the new one “over” it, however the installer gives me an error:
“The directory you selected already exists and contains an installation. Choose a different traget for installation”.
There is no choice to overwrite the old one.

Am I supposed to install the previous IDE version (either before or after) for some reason? Of course I can do that, but there should be at least an option to overwrite an exising version, IMHO.


You have to uninstall the old one and install the new one.

This has been an issue forever. I’ll need to spend some time with at installer frameworks to figure out how to get it to upgrade the IDE.

Ok. Then I’ll do that.
