Hello,

is there anything, attention should be paid to when updating the nightly build? So do i have to delete the complete install directory? I think all preferences are saved at a different place (C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Application Data...).

thnx

Yes, it's recomended to delete the complete install directory before installing a new build. Your profile doesn't need to be removed.

If you run into problems however, you should try to reproduce the problem with a fresh profile.

It's recommended to delete the old folder, but I usually don't unless I run into unusual problems with simply overwriting.
