Forgive me if I've overlooked a previous recommendation, but I'm wondering if I can simply install over the top of 6.5.4, or if uninstalling/reinstalling is more bulletproof.

My biggest concern is loosing playlists

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Well I don't know about playlists cause I never use them. But maybe this will help answer your question. I just installed v7 over 6.5 and the installer uninstalled 6.5 in the process before installing sc7. I would guess that your playlists will be safe because my \SlimServer\server\Playlists directory was still there (just empty because I don't use playlists).

Same here. It doesn't seem to migrate existing settings either which is a bit of a pain.

Migrating on my Mac, SC picked up the music library and playlists folders from where they were in SS 6.5.

Some things are differently organised (or need new versions of the plugins) between the two. I am not sure exactly what was transferred and what wasn't.
