Windows RC5: Another version is already installed.
« on: November 10, 2014, 05:31:24 pm »
I tried to upgrade from RC3, and it was blocked. It was never blocked in the past; and it also doesn't specify *which* version conflicts.

Known issue?

Windows:You need to uninstall the last RC. I think you can install multiple betas but definitely not RCs.

Yeah - The beta's all have unique install folders but the RC candidate just has the "official" install folder and if it finds SE already there it'll balk.

skywise: I always install to a different new directory. There was something in the MSI blocking installation before I even got that far.
Sounds like it's By Design. Thanks!
