5.1 installs to 5.0 directory

Hi.

I just started the IJ 5.1 setup (did I say congratulations?)

The default install directory is "C:\Program Files\JetBrains\IntelliJ
IDEA 5.0".

Is that intentional or should it have ended with "5.1"?

It remembers the last directory where IDEA was installed. Thus, it installs
to "5.0" in most cases of an upgrade and to "5.1" on a clean machine.

Hmm... What's a clean machine?

I uninstalled 5.0, deleted the 5.0 directory completely and it still
installed to 5.0.

The install locations are stored under HKCU\Software\JetBrains\IntelliJ IDEA.
It's very likely that they won't all get cleaned if you install multiple
builds over each other.

That did the trick. As an EAPer, I had quite a few entries there...

Thanks!
