When the HW5 installer is executed, what happens to the files in ?\Hauptwerk used by V4?

Hello Jean-Marc,

If you don't (separately) un-install first, and you just run the v5 installer, leaving all of its options at their defaults, then the installer will retain and migrate your existing installation, keeping the files/folders in the same folders that were used for v4. (Only the *default* locations for installation folders for new/clean v5 installations have changed.)

Note that if you're using a Mac then you do specifically need to un-install/delete your existing v4 installation first, as covered here: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=17850
Best regards, Martin.
