Installing Limewire Beta version
I have Limewire 4.8.1 and have downloaded the new beta version. Do I have to uninstall the old version or will the new one just overlay the old one?

installing over 4.8.1 should be fine, it worked fine for me atleast.

For windows, from LW versions 4.4 & above the installer will initially uninstall the previous version (so long as it is version 4.4 & above), & then follow thru with the installation. But I would definitely not recommend keeping LW 4.8.1 with the idea that you will revert back. Doing so will result in corrupt downld preferences (as happened to me lol :D) & your incomplete downlds would refuse to load. But you'll like the beta I'm sure! ;) :)

Thanks for your help.
I installed it straight over the old version and it seems to be working well. It is a lot faster on my poor old 56k dial-up.
