How to upgrade DesignSpark Mechanical from v4 to v5

Thank you for a new version of DesignSpark Mechanical.

The article how to install it is here:

Unfortunately there is no description how to proceed in case I have already DesignSpark v4 installed. Should we uninstall it first? Or does all the actions DSM5 during the install?

How to do upgrade in case we have paid  Add-On installed on our DSM4?

Thank you.

Yes, please uninstall v4 as there can be file naming conflicts when two versions of DSM exist on the same machine. This is already mentioned in step 2 of the FAQ:

You don't need to worry about your add-on, it will automatically be recognised after your upgrade to v5.

Just follow the same process as regular users of DSM:

Uninstall old version 4.0 -> Install v5 (both translators and main release)
