Download and run the installers
Thank you so much Pat! It installed. I didn't know I had to uninstall the prog before I had deleted it thinking that would work. So I suppose it was still in some programs. Anyway, I used your links and I have the new version now so thank you for saving the last strands of hair on my head .
You're welcome! It is normally not require to uninstall it before installing an update or new version. But when there are problems during the install/update, I always suggest to run the uninstaller first.
