The old 1.18 problem...


Recommended Posts

Hello!

I've still version 1.18 installed, because I don't dare to de-install it. You remember: the version had a bug that caused OLE problems when uninstalled. Now, the newer versions demand that any older versions MUST be uninstalled first. But can I do that without damaging my system?

Regards,

Wilhelm

Hi Wilhelm

I've made a big mistake with the installer for that version [:(] But I've heard from one person who solved it that he just installed over that version. And in the next version that will be 2.1.9 I will exclude older versions from the install check, so that you can try this. Please let me know if it works, and once I'm sorry for all trouble I've caused with this version [V].

Best regards Stefan

Hello Stefan,

No need to be ashamed! You have done a great work, though!

But there must be an idea what really causes the problem? Is it the registry settings or some system files? Because if I knew I could try to move the problematic settings/files "out of the way" before de-installation or updating. And what have the other users of 1.18 done? Just installed the new version in addition to the old one and leaving the old version on their computer forever?

What bothers me is the following questing: if I install a new version over the old without really solving the problem, how can I be certain that the problem does not occur the next time I change versions?

Thanks!

Wilhelm

Hi again

This problem was caused by that I included system files in the installation and placed them in the program folder for CDBurnerXP Pro, and it was working fine until people started to uninstall version 1.1.8. Then I find that I had the same problem, and I solved it by installing a fresh copy of WinXP on top of the old one.

But this problem is solved one time for all now, as I using merged modules for all system files, that are included in the install editor. And no problems are reported since then... [:D]

Best Regards Stefan

[|)] Hm, I must confess that I am not more confident now... How can the system be damaged when the uninstaller only removed files from the programs directory? Ok, I'm not a program author and do not understand much of the matter.

Just one (final?) question: how exactly does the "problem" affect my system? What is it that stops working? I would like to check immediately, if the "problem" occurs or not.

Thanks

Wilhelm
