Just wondering, on an XP machine, is it best to completely stop SS running and uninstall it before installing a new version? Is it fine to just run the installer and install it of the top of a previous version?

I just stop the server and install over the top of the existing installation. Hasn't caused me any problems. This is assuming you're using official release versions, if you're running dev or beta builds you should probably be a little more cautious.

depends if you are going forward or backward... in my experience if you are stepping down a version .. say beta 6.5 to 6.2.2 then you will need to do an uninstall.. but if moving up a level then no need to perform an uninstall
