I advise you to use the "AIO" ("all-in-one") Windows version. One
reason is that it is supported by an official gramps developer (and
the other one isn't, and I have seen users complain about it). The
other reason is that it is called "all in one" because it has all the
related non-gramps programs which gramps uses (such as GraphViz
to make a certain kind of report, and something to do with maps
also), packages up with the gramps.

Yes, that is the recommended way to upgrade. It is known to work.
Export your data on your 3.2.4 machine, carefully choosing one of
the two XML formats (depending on whether you want to put in
media too, if I recall correctly). Also, make sure to not "restrict"
that saving-away (which gramps calls "export"). That is, make
sure the boxes for things like "include living people" and "include
private information" (or whatever words those boxes have, I don't
remember exactly), make sure they are set to include all of your
data, even on living people and "private" information.
