Previous installation not detected?

  • I’m using 64-bit Npp on Windows 8.1 x64, installed at a location different from default folder.
    Every time I download a new version and run its installer, previous install location is not detected and it tries to install to default location (C:\Program Files\Notepad++). I think it used to detect the previous installation before and tried to upgrade instead. Is this a bug or new behaviour? Should I uninstall the previous one first, or just edit the default folder location to previous one? I just don’t want to mess things up by trial and error, that’s why I’m asking… thanks.
