Can't install v2.X on top of an existing v2.X installation

Reported by: michelpons Owned by: michaelhalloran
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: COLoggers Version: Development
Keywords: Installer Cc:


I am trying to use installer for v2.0 Build Sep 11, 2011 in a machine where v2.0 Build Sep 10, 2011 has already been installed successfully. Double-clicking on the new msi gives me the following error message from Windows Installer:

\"Une autre version de ce produit est déjà installée. Impossible de poursuivre l'installation de cette version. Pour configurer ou supprimer la version existante de ce produit, utilisez l'application Ajout/Suppression de programmes du Panneau de configuration.\"

In short it says that another version of the same product is already installed and that the user needs to use Add/suppress program in the configuration panel in order to uninstall the previous version.

  • Type changed from defect to enhancement
  • Milestone changed from 2.00 No dependency/Viewer/New installer to 2.01

I thought it was a feature of the new installer to offer repair. I don't mind moving the objective for this to the next milestone and to consider this as en enhancement. The message one gets from the installer is rather informative. It is mostly a matter of convenience.

  • Summary changed from Can't install v2.0 on top of an existing v2.0 installation to Can't install v2.X on top of an existing v2.X installation
  • Milestone changed from 2.1 to 2.2

Repair feature is still not available in 2.1. Moved to next milestone.
