C:\Users\Your-user-name\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin

drag wallet.dat to another place on your pc

http://sourceforge.net/projects/bitcoin/files/Bitcoin/bitcoin-0.3.24/bitcoin-0.3.24-win32-setup.exe/download

and download that Grin

That's what I did but I'm not sure..It worked for me

With the zip, I imagine you can just extract it into the same directory as you did the old version, but just tell it to overwrite?
I used the executable to install, so when new versions come out, I simply use the windows uninstall feature (which leaves the wallet.dat in place) and then run the new executable.

https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Data_directory
The wallet is located
Quote
C:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\Application data\Bitcoin (XP)
C:\Users\YourUserName\Appdata\Roaming\Bitcoin (Vista and 7)

And it is just download and unzip the latest zip file at http://bitcoin.org/ and open bitcoin.exe

PS. Do a backup of wallet.dat
