The installer that you will download in a moment contains in fact all needed files for that version, so you do not need to install a previous version for this installer to work. It is completely independent.

Please note that according to your license number, you will only be able to validate the version as listed here above.

Note that version 4.0 is a preliminary test version ("beta" version).  It can be installed independently of version 3.6 and you can then use both versions.  Version 4.0 is not yet fully stable and is still in test mode.  But it is possible to explore most features.
