I am new to the forum, to madshi, and to Embarcadero programming, so I hope I'm not causing trouble writing here.

The installer is offering me versions 3 and 4 of madExcept. How do they differ?

I am working on some old code given to me by another developer. Is it easy to install v3, try a build, uninstall v3, install v4, and try another build?

Thanks

David

v4 has several new features and should generally be preferred over v3. The only reason v3 is still contained in the installer is that sometimes with older projects you just want to not change/break anything. So if the software you're working on has been using v3 for years, maybe you want to stick with v3. However, v4 is more or less compatible with v3 and should not require many (if any at all) code changes on your side. So my recommendation would be to use v4.

You don't have to uninstall if you want to switch versions. Just stop Delphi, and rerun the installer with the version you want to install. The installer is able to down- und upgrade automatically.
