Ok to Uninstall old versions of SmartSDR?

Options

Today I fired up "Installed Apps" on my Windows 11 system to clean up some stuff I no longer use. Along the way I noticed 6 installations of SmartSDR going back to my first, 3.3.33. Is it safe to uninstall old versions?

BTW I also noticed that the older versions averaged about 85-90MB in size while 3.6.8 is 420MB. Wow!

Thanks and 73

    Yes, Just don't delete the VSP parts when it asks you.

    Yes to this


    Yes to the administrator question

    Yes to this


    Yes to this (I forgot about this one)

    (don't hit NO--- I just did - working too fast again)

    The fix is to just reinstall 3.6.8 (or the most current version)


    Yes to this. But if you are uninstall a bunch, you can do a reboot once you are all down doing all your uninstalls.

    Will it ask me about VSP? Right now I'm looking at a dialog that says

    "Are you sure you want to completely remove SmartSDR and all of its components?"

    Is VSP in "all of its components?"

    I'm reluctant to say Yes because I'm not sure it will ask me later...

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
