 I am currently in the process of testing the installation and upgrade of MySQL Shell on a Windows 10 64-bit virtual machine silently. While the upgrade process worked seamlessly up until version 8.0.33, I encountered an issue when attempting to upgrade to version 8.0.34 and beyond.It appears that the newer version(8.0.35/8.0.36) is coexisting with the older version, and I am unable to perform an upgrade.
Is it intended for MySQL Shell versions to coexist, or is manual uninstallation of the older version required before upgrading to the latest release?
If manual uninstallation is required, are there any specific user settings or configurations that might be affected by this process?
Is there any documentation available for upgrade?

How to repeat:
Install 8.0.34
Install 8.0.35\8.0.36

Added the following note to the MySQL Shell 8.0.38, 8.4.1, and 9.0.0 release notes:
Upgrading MySQL Shell 8.0.35, or higher, on Windows platforms, resulted in 
multiple installations instead of overwriting the existing installation.

Thank you for the bug report.
