Do new SAPGUI releases uninstall previous versions?

Describes how new SAPGUI releases uninstall previous versions and how to push the new version if necessary. Basis expert Giovanni Davila explains this to a reader who needs a new GUI version for all clients.

When I use the distribution server for installing SAPGUI to my all clients, will it uninstall older SAPUI from clients?
Yes. All new SAPGUI releases uninstall previous versions. However, just beware that some uninstalls don't go 100% perfectly, and sometimes you have to resort to run "SAPSweep.exe" on the client. Then, push the new SAPGUI using the SAP Server Admin tool.
