What is the procedure for doing a manual update to the latest build of RM5?

RM5 is already installed on a desktop with no internet connection and I have a copy of the latest build.

Do I need to uninstall my existing RootsMagic 5 and do a new installation? Or am I supposed to install it on top of the existing one?

Thank you.

No, you do not want to uninstall a previous version of RM5 to update to a later version.

If you have downloaded the new build, you can copy it to the target computer and double click on it and follow the prompts.

(IF you have RM4 installed, it will ask you if you want to overwrite that when installing, I answer NO, and it leaves RM4 alone, but it still overwrites the current copy of RM5. ((Just the program, it does nothing to the data files)) )

Or, you can probably even run it from a flash drive.
