You can avoid the entire mess by uninstalling the old version BEFORE installing the new one. I've been doing this for years w/o any issues at all and was recommended by the late and VERY missed Bill Somerville.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Uninstalling any old version will ultimately uninstall the latest one, but its easily re-installed when done. Here is Bill's answer on the issue;
…..If you really want to clean them up then you must uninstall every one, ignoring warning messages and including the currently installed version(s), then re-install latest version. You log files and settings will be preserved. If you do not want redundant uninstall entries then uninstall WSJT-X before installing a new version.

Thanks for the reply. Guess I will be skipping any further updates. As long as 2.5.4 serves my purpose there is no real reason to update. I don't do contesting/field day etc. so I don't need an update I won't ever use.
