To install the Sincpac-C3D, simply login as a user with Admin privileges, and double-click on the sincpacC3D_v3_setup.exe file. The Sincpac-C3D will be enabled for all users on your system. When installing a new version of the Sincpac-C3D, it is not necessary to uninstall the previous version, you may simply install the new version over the old. This will place the add-on into the C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Application Plugins folder as a ".bundle" package where C3D will autoload it at run time.
However, if you have been using an early version of the Sincpac-C3D that is loaded via a "netload" command during Civil-3D startup, make sure you remove that "netload" command from your startup routines. Also, you may remove any special support paths that you may have created for earlier versions of the Sincpac-C3D - those support paths are no longer necessary.
In the Windows Control Panel, use the "Add and Remove Programs" wizard (on Windows XP) or "Programs and Features" (on Vista/Win7, 8, & 10) to uninstall the Sincpac-C3D.
