I run Windows 7 Home Basic (32bit), so I downloaded “kicad-5.1.2_1-i686.exe” (thanks to KiCad team).
Since about a decade, I used working with a rather very old version:
I installed this old version in a separate folder “D:\KiCaD”.
Just to be very sure before installing the newest version, I like to ask:
After installing the new program, could I run the two versions as ‘separate’ programs?
For instance, after reading some other’s posts here, I noticed that it wasn’t just me who couldn’t decide what to do next after reading the actual entry warning/question of the installer. It says:
KiCad is already installed. Installing this package will overwrite existing files. Do you want to continue?
I wish it was:
KiCad is already installed. Installing this package will overwrite existing files if you will choose the same install location. Do you want to continue?
