Hello,

I'm asking a simple question as I can't find any specific advice about installing Ultra Fractal (UF) updated versions.

Variously, some new software updates are installable over heir previous versions, and some software old versions must be uninstalled before installing an update, and some will simply install another version additional to its predecessor according to its different name.

My first installation was and remains version 5.04.

Hence, before I press a wrong 'button', could you please advise the approved way of installing UF updates?

If you are referring to the installation of UF 6 then it is perfectly ok to go ahead and just install it to a different folder. It will not conflict with UF5 in any significant way if you do this.

The only MINOR effect you might see is when opening UF5 you may get a notice popping up to the effect that it's folders are not set properly (or some such wording). You can safely dismiss that notice and just use the program as usual. UF5 folder settings are unchanged and the program works in the same way it always has.

I have both installed and working on my computer quite happily together.

On Windows, if you just use the defaults suggested by the installer, Ultra Fractal 6 will install in a different folder so it won't overwrite UF5. The only thing is that you will need to choose which of these will open fractal files if you double-click them in Windows Explorer.

On Mac, both are called "Ultra Fractal" but you can just rename version 5 to "Ultra Fractal 5" and put version 6 next to it.
