Q8100017: I want to re-install ActiveXperts SMS Messaging Server. I uninstalled first, but now the installation tells me that I cannot install it in the same destination directory as before. Am I doing something wrong?
You cannot install the product in an existing directory.
Upon un-installation, the original directory (default: C:\Program Files\ActiveXperts\SMS Messaging Server) is NOT deleted in case there are files created/modified after the previous installation. You must delete these files/directories manually.
Once the directory (C:\Program Files\ActiveXperts\SMS Messaging Server) is deleted, you can re-install it in that directory.
In previous versions of the product, it was possible to install in an existing directory, but this often lead to interference with previous installations.(viewed: 2161)
