Can you run the installer without uninstalling the old version?

(I wish they would tell you this stuff upfront...)     Sometimes the new program will uninstall the old one as you run the installer...but I haven't found any instructions about it.

Yes you can, or if you prefer you will get an automatic update within a day or two

Automatic update sounds good.  I think I'll wait for that.

Thanks for the link because I finally saw this

I was wondering why an update was not being offered.

Ah, so that explains why MBAM scanned this morning before a scheduled scan, why WinPatrol popped up and why my computer rebooted!!!
I guess I must have looked at my notes and did not realize it was a different version.

Forget what I posted above. My version is still showing as 2.1.14.1018
and when you go to download 2.1.14 is offered.

The v2.1.7.1055  release being phased-in, and is temporarily limited to users updating internally from Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.1.4 or greater --- they do NOT offer a direct download link to a separate installer at this time.   The intent is extend distribution quickly over the next week or so.

Strange there isn't a separate installer yet.  I guess it is an attempt to prevent the download server from becoming overwhelmed.
