Description

I have just discovered the user, who has 3 versions of Bornagain (1.0, 1.1 and 1.3) installed on Windows 7.
Seems that GUI is working well, but Python, naturally, always uses libraries from BornAgain-1.0 location.

How to fix:
  • modify Windows installer in such a way that BornAgain would prepend its location to the PATH, so that the last installed version always loaded first.
  • Warn user about it in installation instruction

Second possible solution: modify installer so it would suggest the user to uninstall previous version. Might be hard to achieve, consider usage of Qt installer framework.
