OK, this did not help because I already tried to clean registry myself,
and got rid of all entries like ’emeditor’ and ’emed’ related to EmEditor.
I deleted relevant keys as well.
I decided to install v7 RC6 on top of the v6.004 free and in the same folder ;-)
Of course, I received the same error, BUT now I have v7 RC6 running :-D
OK, I was able to install 6.004 Free version.
But it did not help to install 7.0 RC5/6,
because error message says about Professional version :-(
Well, this is THE PROBLEM, –
EmEditor during the installation of a new version at certain point
somehow detects existence of the “old version”,
which it cannot remove simply because that old version is not installed anymore :)
BUT somewhere in registry there are some leftovers
which indicate that the old virsion still installed.
That is why I’d like to see utility to clenup registry after EmEditor unistalled.
Of course it is a good news about “last RC”.
But so far I still have this:
The older version of EmEditor Professional (English) cannot be removed.
Contact your technical support group.
Any suggestions from the “support group”? :-D
Well, clause 2 (Uninstall previous version) should be in Red and in a huge font.
I mean, here is the problem I run into during installation:
1. Had installed v. 6
2. Decided to try v.7(RC2) and installed it in different folder.
First problem – one cannot have both versions on the same machine (!?)
But v.7 installed without a problem and run OK.
3. Now I decided to “upgrade” to RC4.
Of course, I did not noticed that I had to uninstall RC2 and later was prompted to do it.
I could not do it because now I I’ve been asked about location of emed6004epx.msi (!)
which I removed long ago.
And now when I try to install that v.6 back I receive error from Windows Installer:
“The configuration data for this product is corrupt.”
OK. My point is, it will be good to have some kind of uninstall/cleanup utill
to cleanup registry from any EmEditor presence there.
