Default Should I uninstall 2018.10 before installing 2019.5 ?

Q1:
Avid doc "Pro tools installation" says uninstall before installing new version.
Are we to use Windows uninstall function for that, or does the pro tools installer uninstall previous version?

Q2:
Going from 2018.10 to 2019.5 and from 1803 to 1809.
Have stopped windows update and is still on 1803 (windows 10) since 2018.10 is "not qualified" for 1809. However, 2019.5 is declared "qualified" for 1809 by avid, and it seems to work fine with 1809 from reading here at DUC.
Which one to upgrade first, windows or pro tools - any thoughts?

Personally I’d upgrade the OS first then install the latest PT.

Had you been on Mac you could install right over the old version but as you have windows make the unistall correctly before installing the latest version of PT.

On a Mac, I have always just installed over the previous version and never had an issue.

Same with us. Mac users here and we have never had any problems either but OP is a Windows user so a complete uninstall is needed before a new version is installed.

I have PT 2018.12 on Windows 10.

So, just to make sure I understand--to install PT 2019 I need to first use Windows uninstall to uninstall 2018.12, yes?

My concern is possibly losing customizations like plugins, I/O maps, or other settings, or access to existing sessions. Do I need to do (or not do) anything to make sure I don't lose anything?

Also, will I need to re-register anything with Avid or iLok?
