Acrylic is a local DNS proxy which improves the performance of your computer by caching the responses coming from your DNS servers.
Since a specific upgrade path is not provided for Acrylic the best way to upgrade is simply to uninstall the old version and install the new one. Before uninstalling the old version you may want to make a backup of your configuration files as they will be all deleted by the uninstall process. **Note: ** On Windows 10, while trying to install the new version, you might see a _The service has been marked for deletion_ error. This usually happens when _Process Explorer_ by Sysinternals, the _Task Manager_ or the _Microsoft Management Console_ are open while uninstalling the old version. In this case close all the aforementioned applications (which should trigger the removal of the service by the OS and retry installing the new version again.
