Ticket #82 (closed enhancement: fixed)

New version should supersede old in path : Windows Installer

Reported by: ray@… Owned by: refold

Description

The Windows installer currently adds directories to the end of the Path environment variable. If one is installing over a previous version of the Platform, this means the ghc binaries from the previous version will be found first unless the path is manually edited. It should either remove the previous version's directories (if this is feasible) or insert its directories earlier in the path so the new version supersedes the old one.
