Upgrading from AdWords 10.6 to 11?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I currently have AdWords Editor v. 10.6 installed. I'd like to upgrade to the new Version 11. It is not giving me the option to upgrade from withing the AW Editor interface - no dialog box with "A New Version is Available.....". I can download version 11 from the installation page in Google, but it doesn't detect I already have the previous version installed. Will it not upgrade & replace the old version? Do I have to manually download v. 11, then import all my account data, then delete the old version? Or should this be done automatically? Thanks for any help.

Hi sddalg,

 

Version 11+ upwards is basically a new client / software rather than an upgrade from the previous versions. You'll need to download the newest version from here and then just download the data directly from within that software, no exporting and importing is required.

 

You can have both the old and new version downloaded at the same time so I wouldn't suggest deleting your current version for now until you are entirely familiar with the newest one.
