Provide a true upgrade path for ArcGIS Explorer (not uninstall completely and reinstall each new release)

    There is no true upgrade path for ArcGIS Explorer. The "upgrade" process is as follows:

    1) Uninstall AGX completely
    2) Install new version

    Not sure why that's the case. Most modern software products offer a true upgrade path rather than an uninstall / install "upgrade" pattern, don't they?

    Having a true upgrade path may make it easier to comply with Esri's recommendation to upgrade AGX clients as soon as a new build is released.
