The new installer worked fine for me (WinXP1), but I wasn't sure if I
could install over the old version and have it work properly / remove
the old version from the 'Add / remove programs' list.
It suggested a default location on the C: drive but the old version was
installed on the D: drive (and that's where I want it to be installed).
When I pointed it to the old location it didn't complain about the old
files, but didn't give me an indication either of going to do an
update. So I got confused and uncertain.
I decided to remove the old Python2.4 first, then reboot and reinstall.
(Is reboot really needed?)
And then afterwards it did complain about seeing files still in the
Perhaps nicer if the installer could give feedback like 'Old
installation found; will update to new version' or something like that.
But that can be for 2.4.2 or a later time.
