Laurens, one of the few things I don't like about Sunrise is that it requires uninstalling previous versions before the new one can be installed. The uninstall takes longer than the installation, and is a PITA. Any chance of being able to install over the previous version in future releases?

Well, the installer says it's "recommended" that you uninstall the previous version, not that it is absolutely required. The reason is that the uninstaller has no knowledge of files installed by previous versions. You could end up with multiple, incompatible versions of the same libraries, which may lead to all sorts of strange behaviour. I will see if I can address the long wait during uninstallation(which is due to HotSync Mgr restarting).
