Greetings, BC community...

 

Question:

 

When I install (or when windows installs automatically) new versions of Java, Adobe flash, and Adobe reader, are the old versions uninstalled automatically? And if not, how do I find them to clean them from my PC, or a potential customer's PC?

 

I am running Win7, but I curious about this with other OSs as well...

As far as I know, Adobe Flash deletes the existing version.

 

The Adobe pdf reader sometimes does and sometimes doesn't, but all versions show up in 'Add / Remove programs' and can be removed from there.

 

And it is the same with Java, but there is a tool here on the Oracle web-site to remove old versions.

 

http://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

 

It's at the top of the page, before you even get to the downloads !

There was a time when Java updates did not delete old versions and you had to manually remove them. That changed a few years ago and is no longer necessary.
