IMHO that's not normal for an end user to have two versions, therefore I 
think this can be advised.

Yes, disrupting the installation process may be misunderstood (false 
expression). Within the whole installation process the first step (I 
wrote so) ist unpacking the files in a separate folder. After this the 
real installation process will be started. This must be interrupted.
