    1010If you have a previous version of GSAS & EXPGUI installed, this will not update that version. You can either delete that version or keep it, but note that shortcuts to the older version will likely be overwritten and the registry keys (for right-click options) certainly will be replaced. If you opt to keep the old version, load this version in a new location (or rename the older version). This process will fail if used in the location where the package has already been loaded.
     
    100100One other option for upgrades is to use the free Tortoise SVN package (http://tortoisesvn.net/), which I recommend highly to windows users. Note that if you make any modifications to any files distributed as part of GSAS or EXPGUI, these files may not be fully upgraded, should these changes conflict with changes made in the distribution files. If you are in the practice of modifying the programs, you should learn to use Tortoise SVN to do your upgrades.
