Upgrading Inquiry
#1
If a new version of Shark007 Advanced Codecs comes out, do I simply install on top of the old version? Or do I need to uninstall the old version and start from scratch?

If you are upgrading solely because its newer, install it on top of the existing version.
If you are trying to solve a problem, uninstall the older version 1st.

Although I supply a single installer containing both 32 and 64bit codecs, be aware that the x64Components has a separate uninstaller.

Does that mean installing on top won't upgrade the x64 components?

]I am not sure how you could come to that conclusion, but . . .
Upgrade installations upgrade what was previously installed.
If the x64Components (64bit codecs) were installed previously, they would be upgraded during the upgrade process.
