Hi, thanks for your mail.

It is safe to just install the new version over the top of the old
as long as you're not actually running the old version at the time.

I don't know why this is so.  Something similar to "Hewlett Packard
Calculator PC Connectivity Kit" (the marketing people made me do that)
in my list of installed programs, and I can uninstall it.

There's a known issue with uninstalls if you have both HPComm and
installed (the start menu is not cleared up properly) but this is
from your problem.

If you have any problems with upgrading to 3.0r4, please give us a
on this list and we'll see how we can help you.

Future revisions are rather unlikely, as both authors (myself and James)
now working on other things.  If you can program, you are welcome to
help us.
