If the out-of-date question is specific enough and does includes information that dates itself and limits its application such as a specific OS or software version, then a new question and new answers can be appropriate.
If the question is generic enough, such as for a process like the question you noted: New answers can be given with up-to-date information to the original question. However, unless OP comes back and selects the new answer, such additional answers could end up hidden below the previous, and previously-good, answers.
For this reason, I believe a properly worded new question can be a good thing in many of these situations. Note that the answers to the previous question, which is a good question, but "stuck in history" as it were, are no longer valid to the current realities. Such a new question, presented well, can and should get new answers which will be current.
But, take a lesson from the old questions and answers and specify the version(s) of the products you're working on so that it can be more clear to future searchers when and where your question and its answers apply to.
