During this time there will be a delay in answering support tickets, so we ask for your patience during the holiday period.  While we will keep tabs on the tickets during the break, we will respond to them as quickly as possible upon our return.

Cleanest way to upgrade from WB 7.2-->WB4

Im curious, when upgrading from WB 7.2 to WB 7.4, would it be better to uninstall WB 7.2 first, then install WB 7.4 if I want all traces of the old version to be gone?  Does WB leave any orphaned files/registry settings behind after an uninstall?  I know some Windows applications leave a mess behind in the registry after an uninstall.

You should be fine with installing overtop.  With a minor version update, there's not much, if anything, that changes in the registry, it's typically program side.
