I just purchased the 2017 game. I would like to install it. Do I first de-auhtorize the 2013 version or will it just overwrite the existing file? Will I need to re-authorize each of the seasons I have purchased? I appreciate the advice.

 It's optional to de-authorize the 2013 game. If you do you can use it in the future. You don't need to de-authorize the seasons.

I had both the 2013 and 2016 on my computer .  My experience when I tried to install over the 2013 game was that the 2017 Game  saves as a sub file within the 2013 game ( or 2016 game when I tried that version)- so to play the 2017 game you had to open up the folder within the 2013 or 2016 game and the only teams would be the 2016 roster that the game came with it -  all my pre existing teams stayed on the 2013 game ( or 2016 game when I tried that one)-  - I uninstalled and de -authorized the 2017 game several times and each time I reinstalled the game the same thing happened-  ( to be clear the very same thing  happened when I tried  to load it over the 2016 game as well)

I was not able to de-authorize the 2016 older game (s) without first de-authorizing the seasons and the stadiums. Then I could uninstall the older game (s)

That was my experience but I think I correctly  followed the installation instructions ( which were the same when I installed the other game (s) but I never had this issue until now). 

Once the 2016 game was off I could install the 2017 game with no problem and  my 2017 game works and I am able to load back my seasons ( so far I have only loaded back three but no problem yet.

 Hi Tall - you were lucky -  mine just would not work till I took everything off - glad yours worked without any glitches though -
