    Zenfolio plugin

    Installing LR 4.0 and the LR 4.1 release candidate

    I haven't installed RC4.1, but what I would do if I were you is install LR4 off the DVD, then if you want to upgrade to the RC version, simply download that off the web and it will install a new instance of LR(RC4.1) without removing your LR4.
