My apologies if this has been addressed.
- Why is PL5 Elite still installed after installing PL6 Elite.
I was expecting the PL 6 Elite installer to uninstall the PL5 install.
- Is it safe to uninstalled PL 5 Elite?
- All my versions of PL are bought and paid for i.e. no Trial versions
I always uninstall the previous release. Others do not. What I do is leave it there for a bit on a just in case basis and once I know the switch to the new version has gone as planned I uninstall.
New versions of PhotoLab never overlay previous versions They need to be uninstalled separately. If you are happy with your installation of PL 6 than it is certainly OK to uninstall PL5. I only keep previous version available for comparison purposes when some feature in the latest version has been updated or is acting strangely. Generally, after several weeks with the latest version I uninstall it. Some people keep previous versions installed.
Pl 5 still installed because that is how it should be
instilling PL6 doesn’t remove PL 5 it’s ok for it to be this way.
For the time being I suggest live PL5 installed also if you can and wait for more response on your second question.
It is certainly safe to uninstall previous versions. Though some leave them installed, I personally remove them after insuring that the new version is stable and working properly, they are taking up valuable disc space and version N will almost always do what version N-1 will do, most often better. Just be sure to keep the installation files for the older versions in case you ever wish to reinstall them.
Thank you all for answering my question
