Updates to apps previously installed
« on: August 13, 2008, 02:48:58 am »
When a new update becomes available for an app that I have installed with ZU, I just do another "before and after" with ZU and label it as an update or upgrade of the original app.

When the time comes to uninstall the app, do I use the reverse order for uninstalling ie the update first and then the original app?   Or, does the order matter.  By doing this will I get all the files out of my computer?

Uninstalling in reverse order (update first, program after) would probably be the way to go, yes.

That way, you 'revert' back to the pre-update version (kind of...), and then finally 'revert' back to pre-install (so to speak) :)

Thanks for the help.

Do most people bother using ZU for updates?

Well, I can't really answer for other people, but I doubt it... (read: I don't ;))
