Short description of error
Removing previous version of Blender when installing 2.76
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Hello this is probably not a bug but more of a usability issue:
I keep several legacy versions Blender on my p.c. because I have older projects that use legacy features or for whatever reason are incompatible with newer versions of Blender.
This (I think) is the first time that Blender has removed the previous version (2.75) when I installed the new version (2.76). I attempted to reinstall blender 2.75 through the installer and then through the .zip file and get the message that a newer version of blender is already installed, and I am not able to reinstall the previous version.
I think I understand the reasoning behind this but, At the very least I think there should be an option to keep the previous version. Is that practical or even possible?
Am I mistaken in keeping previous versions? (I am probably in the extreme category - I have everything back to 2.62 : Or maybe I'm just nostalgic :0)
Thank you for your time and any insight you can offer.
