Do I have to make a copy of my project if I'm installing a new version?

Sorry, didn't really know where to put this...

I bought XP on Steam just now (because it's on sale! yay!), and I realised I had downloaded the trial from here... As the title says, if I install it, do I have to make a copy of my project so it does not get overwritten? It's in My Documents, so I don't really see how new install could access it, but just in case... I don't want to lose all I have done and learned.

Thanks,

tuskel,

sincerely

It could, as long as you're using the same user or a user with higher privileges...


Anyway, unless you make a new project with the same name and allowed it to overwrite the old one, you shouldn't have any problems. Installing another version of the engine doesn't auto-create a new project

not neccessary - that's why it is in "my documents". You only risk loosing data on deinstalling and then only if its in the program folder itself.


And you can install both steam and non-steam parallel to each other, no need to deinstall the trial.
