Installation and uninstalltion Retrospect 5.6


Recommended Posts

I've tried installing Retro Express 5.6 on my PC with windows 2000 from a CDR which came with the external hard drive I purchased. I installed the program as Administrator.When i tried to run Retro Express 5.6 as another user i got an installation error.


Next i tried to uninstall Retro Express 5.6. This was not possible, i got also an installation error. Now i made an manually uninstallation found in DAntz Technical Memo P008.


The result was, that i can't reinstall Retro Express 5.6. The installtion wizard started, i was asked for the installtion path, he begans with copying files and after a few seconds he tells me the action turned back and the installtion ended. I think its a message from the windows installer. Who has an idea how i can install Retro Express 5.6 in this case.
