Unable to Install/Uninstall


Recommended Posts

Righty-o...I had installed PDN v3.5 Alpha, and then put it onto my memory stick...Recently i lost my memory stick, and therefore need to re-install PDN.

However, I wish to install PDNv3.36...but due to my previous install of PDNv3.5, it will not let me install, as quoted from error message "A Later Version is already installed"

I have gone into Add/Remove Programs and attempted to Uninstall via that, but unsuccessful, as it encountered an error...

So i tried searching for all remaining PDN files remaining on my computer and deleting them, and i believe i have got them all now...However, it still does not allow me to install/Uninstall via Add/Remove Programs...

I have searched and searched, but i can't find any remaining PDN files on my computer....

You installed it onto an external USB stick? That isn't supported, and is known to break and we don't know how to fix it.

The installer for 3.5 does block this, but if you did an upgrade then it may not have.

Have you tried installing v3.5 again, and then uninstalling in Add/Remove programs? And then installing v 3.36?

If this doesn’t work, you may have to recreate your memory stick on another computer.

And don’t MOVE the files. COPY them to your memory stick. That way you don’t remove the option to uninstall.
