I HAVE to (use) install VIDA 14. My Vida 12 doesn't see my new Volvo. MUST I remove the old one?
I prefer not to. I don't like to repeat my problems of not being able to reinstall a program after uninstalling it (in this case Vida 14).

I was forced to replace my S60 2002 (got a 2012) So, I should have posted this tread in S60 2012section, but that forum has the traffic of Birmingham's streets at night under Queen Victoria, and I'm so poor in patience. :evil:

When in doubt... uninstall!!

Typically if a program is sensitive to that, they will make you uninstall during the process. MS Office.. AutoCAD...

That being said though.... A program as large and cumbersome as VIDA... I wouldn't want to double my data requirements for it, so I'd prefer to uninstall rather than overlay or parallel!

Unless it makes you do it, the choice is yours.
