    There is an issue in versions .45, .46 and .47 that prevents the plug-in from fully shutting down. This will prevent a new version being installed as it can't overwrite the plug-in's exe file.
    If you are installing .48 or later over one of these versions then you will need to:
    1. Disable the plug-in from the HS3 manage plug-ins page.
    2. Stop and re-start HS3 with the plug-in disabled.
    3. Install new plug-in version through the HS3 installer.
    4. Enable plug-in in the HS3 manage plug-ins page.

    If the plug-in still fails to install, then it will be necessary to stop HS3 and manually delete the file \HS3\HSPI_PHLocation2.exe then re-start HS3 and run the install again.
