FAQ
Under Windows 2000 I installed R 1.4.0 some time ago. I then
installed R 1.4.1 just now. If I

hit the Windows Start button
select Programs from the menu that appears
select R from the menu that appears

then I get a menu with

R 1.4.0
R 1.4.1
R 1.4.0 Help
R 1.4.1 Help
Uninstall R for Windows

If I select Uninstall R for Windows it uninstalls R 1.4.1 but
I want to uninstall 1.4.0 . How do I do that? There does
not appear to be separate uninstalls for the two versions.

    You go to the 1.4.0 directory and run Uninstall.exe. This and related
    issues are covered in the rw-FAQ in R-devel (1.5.0 to be).

    BTW, the behaviour is quite common for Windows applications.

    BTW, the behaviour is quite common for Windows applications.

    This works but
    1. there are stil some files left including some dot files and
    the library directory hierarchy. I guess you have to delete
    them by hand?
    2. the Start | Programs | R | Uninstall R for Windows
    menu item disappeas do it won't be possible to use it for 1.4.1
    either.

    It seems you have to uninstall 1.4.0 before installling
    1.4.1 if you want to be able to rely on the uninstall in the
    Start | Programs | R menu

    It only deletes files it installed.

    Indeed. That's what the R-devel rw-FAQ item recommends, and again, is
    common for Windows programs.

    It's not a big problem. Since you don't have uninstall R version 1.4.0
    all the old files have been overwritten but not the shortcuts since they
    don't have the same name. However they still use the same file: I mean
    shortcut R 1.4.0 and shortcut 1.4.1 both have the same target. The same
    for Uninstall.
    You can simply erase the shortcut 1.4.0, and everything will be ok.
