Old versions of Musescore.

• Oct 30, 2018 - 16:56

Having downloaded Musescore 2.3.2 am I able to delete the older versions that are still stored on my computer (ie MS 2.0.2, 2.0.3, 2.1(1), 2.1, 2.21, 2.3.1)?

With thanks. CA


If you have a linux based machine, this may not be 100% accurate but otherwise, when you download and install a new version of MuseScore it replaces the old version automatically. If you are referring to the install package then you can delete those as soon as they are installed.

Dear Marc

Many thanks. I should have said I have Windows 10. I will certainly keep 2.3.2, but I’m not sure what the ‘installer file’ is. I don’t know how you chaps and chapesses do this but I’m full of admiration for the delivery of a great program.

The installer file is the MSI file you actually downloaded. That is, presumably you downloaded this file using a web browser, then double-clicked it or otherwise "ran" it, and that is when dialogs came up allowing you to install MuseScore. That MSI file is what I am suggesting you keep around even though you've already done the installation.
