V6B7 - Extra uninstallation entries in W7

Postby netstrader » Wed Mar 30, 2011 7:53 pm

I was on 5.59. Then I upgraded to V6B5 and V6B7. Newsbin detected my previous installation and I used the upgrade option during the installation. I checked the installed programs in the control panel (W7 64-bits). I saw three entries for Newsbin - 2 from V6 and 1 from V5. I was expecting to see one entry since it's an upgrade instead of a new installation.

I've been adjusting it through the first few betas so there may not be compatibility beta to beta but a straight upgrade from 5.59 to 6.0 should not leave anything lying around. Let me know if this is not the case.

Sure, delete whatever you don't use. My goal is a clean install from Version 5 to Version 6. Version 6 overwrites the Version 5 installer upon upgrade so if that link is still around, it won't work. It should have been deleted by the installer. Intermediate Version 6 installs might leave stuff around as I make adjustments.
