Q5000035: I'm unable to upgrade to a newer version. The installation keeps asking me to uninstall the software (even after I uninstalled the product). What is the problem?
ActiveXperts uses the InstallShield product for its installations. Only on very rare occasions, InstallShield doesn't update its registry key after uninstall, so it will ask you to uninstall the next time you start the installation. You can use this workaround: Start the registry editor (REGEDIT.EXE); Open the HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\ key; Delete the AB6507B4-DDC8-4900-B8A5-A4DBC593E193 key. Now, InstallShield won't ask to uninstall anymore.

Q5000017: I want to re-install ActiveXperts SMS Component. 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 are right: you cannot install the product in an existing directory.

You must delete these files/directories manually. Once the directory (C:\Program Files\ActiveXperts\SMS Component) is deleted, you can re-install it in that directory. In previous versions of the product, it was possible to install in ...
