The link says: "Users must uninstall their existing XE7 before installing this update" Does anyone know why this is required? As I see it, this results in a lot of (un)necessary work for a product update.
Yes, it is required. The update will automatically uninstall the older version for you. It took almost as long to uninstall as it did to install. Plan on the complete update taking several hours, at least.
