So the installer should have prompted me for which version I wanted to install; however, it didn't - namely because it had not removed anything in the 4.1.3 install, it was all still there. After I manually deleted the entire 4.1.3 install directory, it then prompted me for which version to install.

However, the installer would not give me any option to do so. Am I mistaken in this impression? Or is there a bug in the installer?

unselect the skip basic settings checkbox on the first page - then you 
can change the install dir
