  • So you get "already installed" when you run /uninstall? That in itself sounds like a bug to me - since "already installed" is the state you want to be in when uninstalling (unless you mean that you run /uninstall and then get the same error when running the installer).

    Did you try removing the registry keys (as deleted in the forum sticky)?

    Manually editing the Registry
    • Click Start
    • Click Run
    • Type Regedit and hit Enter (if you are on Vista you will need to agree to a UAC prompt)
    • In the Registry Editor remove the following Registry entries:

      HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Installer\Products\9D1E4BCD781B45B479E1418784C5A935

       

      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\UserData\<YOURSID>\Products\9D1E4BCD781B45B479E1418784C5A935

      NOTE:  <YOURSID> value will be unique to you.

  • Hi Appaji,

    I'd try to run the install with the /repair or /uninstall switch as detailed in this post. The instructions there should set you on the right path :)

    Let us know how it worked out!

    Could you pleaser post the full text of the error message - does it say "another version of this product is already installed" maybe?
