ASCOM 5.0 driver install
I've got the A-P driver 4.99.53 installed and I'd like to replace it with the new 5.0 version. Can I install 5.0 over the existing installation or do I need to remove 4.99.53 first.
If so, any instructions for doing so would be appreciated.
I'm running under Windows XP SP3, 32 bit with the latest ASCOM platform (5.1b, I think) installed.

located in a different directory so you need to either reenter the ASCOM settings (e.g., COM port/longitude/latitude) or
copy the AP.INI file.
If you choose to copy the file the old AP.ini is located here (for Windows XP):
The directory to which to copy it is:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Astro-Physics\ASCOM
If the destination directory does not exist then start the driver at least once so that it creates the directory and
puts a default AP.INI there. Then shut down the driver and copy the old AP.INI over the new one.
