Need to uninstall 8.022 before install of 8.024? - Macromedia Flash Player

I just installed version 8.024.0 over 8.022.0 without first uninstalling the earlier version. Afterwards, Macromedia's flash player page listed the version as 24. We are a lab and I'm concerned about the security issue...should I have uninstalled the earlier version first? Thanks, Marlene...

    No. The 8.0.24.0 installer does that for you..

    Hi Bentley, That is not true it still leaves registry keys in the uninstall and it leaves Flash8.ocx which can be called instead of flash8a.
