I have an existing copy of CrossWorks and I want to upgrade to a later version, what do I need to do?
CrossWorks is designed to allow multiple versions to be installed at any one time, you just need to make sure that you install the new version of CrossWorks to a different directory. It is not necessary to uninstall the previous version of CrossWorks before installing the next.
If you are upgrading to a new major or minor version of CrossWorks (e.g. 1.6 to 1.7, or 1.7 to 2.0), the default behaviour of the installer will be to install CrossWorks to a unique directory with a unique shortcut. If however you are upgrading to a new build revision (e.g. 1.7 build 2 to 1.7 build 3) the installer will select the same directory and shortcut as the previous version, so if you want the two versions to coexist you should modify the Destination Folder to select a different installation directory and Program Folder (Windows only) to select a different shortcut.
Please note that with CrossWorks version 1.x the support packages and target interface settings are not shared between installations so you will need to re-install support packages and re-apply any changes you made to the target settings in the new installation. This does not apply to CrossWorks version 2.x or later.
