How to upgrade from EMET 4.0 to 4.1? RRS feed

  • Question

  • As with every software which doesn't self-update, the question arises how to do it manually in the right way.

    The manual is ambiguous. On one hand..

    "I have EMET 3.0 installed.  Should I uninstall it before installing the new version?

    You don’t need to uninstall EMET 3.0 before installing EMET 4.1. EMET 4.1 will provide an upgrade experience to safely migrate current settings from EMET 3.0."

    On the other

    "I have an old version of EMET installed. How do I upgrade to EMET 4.1?"

    It is recommended that you first uninstall the old version of EMET via Windows Control Panel, and then manually delete the HKLM\Software\Microsoft\EMET and HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\EMET keys prior to running the EMET 4.1 installer."

    Just running the 4.1 installer over 4.0 installed gives two choices, reset settings and keep settings but enable "early warning"?

    Though I didn't choose to keep settings, EnableUnsafeSettings was still on.
