I don't think we should uninstall a Beta automatically when a new production version is released. People may want to compare and, like in the current situation, Beta contains extra functionality which was not yet enabled in the Production version, so just leave the Beta version there till the next Beta version is released.

I think before I did not all is well described.
The following step by step, guide.
I think now it will be more clear about what I mean.

When you try to install then you get this kind of messages:

AutoIt v3.3.12.0 is already installed in 'C:\Program Files\AutoIt3' on your system.  It is recommended that you uninstall the current version before continuing.
Uninstall before continuing (recommended)

So I click Uninstall
and then popup this message:

Please uninstall the AutoIt beta version first.

And now you must do it manually - I mean uninstall beta.

So why here you can not just turn up the statement and question:
for example.

Please uninstall the beta version of AutoIt first. Do you want to do it now?

And of course after confirmation it will do what I requested:
"Please add new feature to Release installer to be able also automatically unistall existing Beta."

Please reconsider this request.
