nevada Posted January 30, 2007 Report Share Posted January 30, 2007 I have never before had problems installing Macro Express upgrades. Therefore, when I saw version 3.6 available, I ran it without hesitation. The install ran without problems. Because I haven't run a ME express update in well over a year, I didn't realize when I ran it that I didn't see the searching for prior installations screen that I saw before. I rebooted only to see the splash screen saying version 3.5e. I had a problem. I discovered that ME had installed itself in c:\program files and my old version in f:\program files was still there and starting up on reboot. The install didn't discover the prior version on the F drive. I use my c drive to boot windows only and have limited space there. I don't want any application programs or data there to reduce image creation and restore times and file sizes. Because I have never had problems with ME before I didn't make an image before installing. Because I had installed some other programs that I didn't want to reinstall, I didn't want to simply restore my c drive from an image. So I uninstalled version 3.6. My program start entries on the start menu went away. I reinstalled 3.5e to put them back. When it restarted, it told me I had used the program for more than 30 days. My license information was gone. Fortunately, I was able to find it from six or seven years ago. I put it in. It worked. Now I have lost all of my customization settings. I am not sure what to do now.
