Hi Jorg,

you can rename files that are in use - because Windows will sometimes let
you - try it and see :o)

I've had to do this myself when removing an installation of (ahem) Oracle
from my PC prior to installing a new version.

If you find that you cannot rename the files, then you have to start the
server in safe mode and delete the files from a DOS box/command line
Alternatively, you might find that the installer for the new version will be
quite intelligent and set up a command to replace the locked files on the
next reboot.
