Hi Ivan,
        I am no expert but I really can't see any reason to have an older
version installed. On that thought they would have ship an older version
with every new sale. P99SE must install on it's own, it's only logical.
        I think most of the list members must be at the PCB West conference,
it has been awfully quiet the last few days.
        My personal opinion would be to still install P98 or whatever you
were using previous. I would like having it there just to confirm correct
databases should any question show up upon import into P99SE.

Sincerely,

Brad Velander
