Welcome to the forums! Just

Welcome to the forums!

Just download the latest version of the Platform and install it right over the top of the old one. That works for any PortableApps.com app, as far as I know.

Yes

just head over to the Download page and download the Platform to a folder of your choice. I prefer my Desktop. Then run it and it will automatically find your old install and install right over it.

TY for the WELCOME and TY for

TY for the WELCOME and TY for your replies...
One doubt: I have 1.5.2 version and I already downloaded the new one (1.6).
What happens if I start the setup of 1.6?
A backup of 1.5.2 is recommended?
TY again.

yes, you should always backup

yes, you should always backup apps before installing new versions - the upgrade process is stable (never crashed for me, and I haven't heard of any crashes either), but Murphy's Law always applies.
Once you've made your 1.5.2 backup, start the setup of 1.6 and point the installer to your 1.5.2 folder (not your backup folder!); the installer will take care of the rest, and you should be good to go.

HTH!
