    Do I need to uninstall Python 2.7.3 before installing Python 2.7.5?

    Thanks

    You're right. I had no problems. FYI the operating system is Windows 7.

    "Python 2.7.3' and 'Python 2.7.5' are by trademark PSF CPython
    implementations of the Python 2.7 language.

    The Windows installers *replace* previous micro releases because the new
    bugfix release is presumed to be better than any before. When that turns
    out to be sufficiently false, there is a new bugfix release as soon as
    possible to remove the regressions. Hence 2.7.4 was quickly replaced by
    2.7.5 (and same for recent 3.2 and 3.3 releases). (Such regressions, as
    with any bug, expose deficiencies in the test suite, which also get
    corrected.)

    I presume that *nix package managers also replace, but have not used them.
