Q6500015: I'm unable to upgrade to the latest version. The installation keeps asking me to uninstall the software. Even after I uninstalled the product, it keeps telling me that. What is the problem?

ActiveXperts uses the InstallShield product for its installations. Only on rare occasions, InstallShield does not update its registry key after uninstall, so it will prompt 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 53FD4AF2-59DC-48E0-B345-CF8491D34460 key.

Now, InstallShield won't ask to uninstall anymore.
