It Is Not Necessary to Uninstall before Installing a New Verson

It is usually not necessary to uninstall the A1 Website Scraper software before installing the newest website scraper version.

The installer will automatically try to suggest an appropriate installation path as default based on the following:

  • If you are installing a new major version, e.g. 8.x instead of 7.x the installation directory can not be reused.
