I just looked in Apps and Features
I do have a stray B24 listing that is not connected to anything and won't uninstall, so I will have to remove it by hand.
But since then I have installed every beta over the previous version and it has updated properly.
I would look at your settings or maybe some kind of protection software blocking part of the update process.
I just run Windows Defender protection as it is tested well and doesn't.add to system clutter.

Today I noticed that all older versions of scrivener are still installed on my machines, so it seems that every time I am forced to install the latest update by srivener, it actually re-installs from scratch and leaves all older versions intact. Is that correct and I should manually remove the older versions ? Or they show up like that but it's all incremental and does not use 10 times the space required ?
I am on windows 10.

.18 and .32 had uninstall buttons available, the rest grayed out.
I uninstalled .v18 which removed v32 as well, so I had to redownload v32 again.
Now I have
v32 (2 of them, one with grayed out uninstall button and one functional)
In Control Panel only v32 shows up.
How can I clean up this?

When I have made small changes in the main uninstall entry Windows will create these ghost entries that only show up in Windows 10 Apps & features
The ghost entries are located in the registry at:
You can delete the entire branch and it will clean out the ghost entries.
This might also be a Windows bug or an issue with how the installer goes at updating the entry. Because I have noticed that if go in and make changes in the main uninstall entry, Windows creates these ghosts itself.
