How to upgrade python from 2.4.3 to 2.4.4 ?

P: n/a
Hi,

I just want to upgrade my python version from 2.4.3 to 2.4.4,do I need
to uninstall python 2.4.3 first ?

I'd rather not to do so, because I have installed some other python
packages for python2.4.3.
Thanks.

You don't have to uninstall. Installing "on top" will work just fine;
both on Windows and Unix (not sure about Mac).

However, the original poster should note that this will NOT work when going
from 2.4.x to 2.5.x. Versions where the second digit differs will get
installed into a different directory, so you must re-install all of your
add-in packages.

Having learned that lesson the hard way, I now keep a directory with zips
and tarballs for all of the add-ins I have installed, and I maintain a
single batch file that will install all of them. This also makes it
trivially easy to install my environment on a different computer.

Okay if one builds such from sources... but us poor Windows flunkies
without a build environment have to wait for some kindly soul to build
the installer compatible with the new Python version.
I run Windows. Only a fraction of the packages I've stored up actually
require compiling anything.

Further, as I understand it, Python 2.4 extensions can be built with the
free "express edition" compiler from Microsoft.
