Irequest that when a new install is underway, a pop-up
message gives notice, giving us the choice to delete the older version
while installing the new version, or keeping the older version and still
install the new version.

Hi Doug,

A dialog is popped up. Click on advanced options and uncheck "Remove old versions"

While it is true that a dialog comes up to update, the "advanced options" is collapsed and the "Remove Old Versions" is checked on by default. Either having the Advanced options expanded by default or having a secondary popup saying "Are you sure you want to remove your old version of Photoshop?" is necessary.

I never got a pop up dialog box to choose anything and old versions deleted. So far cc2017 working OK and older versions not needed.
