Hi Mark,

Generally, I would recommend fully removing the old ADMB-IDE version using 
the uninstaller (start menu entry, or via control panel add/remove 
programs), and then install the new version.

However, if you're not using the default directory names, or are just 
feeling creative, then you can update particular components of your 
ADMB-IDE manually. In the case of the core .emacs file (keyboard and color 
settings), you can download 
http://admb-project.org/community/editing-tools/admb-ide/core, unzip it, 
and replace the old .emacs in your home directory (default c:/~/.emacs). 
If you're not using the default directory names, you can locate this file 
by opening a Dos shell and typing

   echo %HOME%/.emacs
