Because this is a major release, autoupdate of your previous version will
probably not work.  Please reinstall, hopefully in a different directory.
Once you are satisfied with the new version, you can delete the old one.

Potential issue:  surprisingly netbeans 6.7 has made JDK 6 installation a
prerequisite to run the tool.  so if you had only a Java Run-time Environment
(JRE) you will also need to add (or replace JRE with) JDK.  Availabble online,

Test reports welcome, enjoy!

all the best, Don
