Does anyone know if Open Office uninstalls the current version that you have on your computer during the download of the latest?

Or, should I uninstall the old first and then allow it to install the latest.
(I saw that they do not have 'update' and 'patches', only new versions.)

I went to their site and searched where some others had asked this and I didn't find the answer.

Rhonda,

When you install a later version of Open Office, the install process will recognize the older version and will uninstall it for you. It will then install the later version.

Hope this helps.

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.
