Roll back question

Due to some problems with cw skimmer, I decided to roll back the installation to version 1.9.9
My question is: should I uninstall the beta from my computer.  I want to make sure that the beta version of SmartSDR CAT doesn't run on startup.  Will the rollback automatically elect the release version of SmartSDR CAT at startup?  Thanks.

Hi Andrew:

I think the best way to confirm this is to do a reboot and see which versions of CAT/DAX start up. I did a temporary rollback to 1.9 from 1.10 and checked the correct versions of CAT/DAX were running. Since then I've gone back to 1.10 and removed 1.9. But as usual, YMMV.

Just a reboot without connecting to the radio should show you the versions.

I would like to see a new install overwrite or uninstall an old install. I think this would remove a lot of the concerns about what software is running and what needs to be removed when no longer needed. No need for computer scientists or super hobbyists or Revo uninstallers or registry cleaners. It would probably reduce the incidences of odd CAT and DAX behavior too. Then, if I decide to go back to an older version I just uninstall the later version nice and clean and install the older version.

When I cold-start, the 1.10 versions of CAT/DAX load.  I've been working around it by exiting both programs and then manually restarting the 1.9 versions.  If I do an uninstall with REVO, will it also remove the 1.10 CAT/DAX?  Or, should I just run the install of the 1.9 again?

I decided to try the REVO uninstall and then I ran the SmartSDR install.  So far, everything seems 100% fine.  YIPPEEE !!!!

How about taking them out of the autostart.
