How to update Pycharm?

What is the standard/correct procedure to update a licensed installation of pycharm in windows (i.e should I uninstall Pycharm 1.2 before executing the Pycharm 1.2.1 update?).

I could not find precise instructions in pycharm help.

Thanks

Joaquin

Hello joaquin,

You can have multiple versions of PyCharm installed in parallel. You can

uninstall PyCharm 1.2 before you install PyCharm 1.2.1, or after that, or

keep both - whatever you like.

Hi,

I think this should be combined with some option to easily remove the previous version when updating if you don't actually want several versions installed. As it is, I hesitate to update because I don't want to go through the uninstall-install cycle, and I certainly don't want several versions around (that might get confusing). The goal should be "fire and forget"-updating. :-)
