instal.l error - looking for 0.8.7. ?

when I've installed last 2 - 3 updates I get an error at end of installation. seems that the installer want to delete version 0.8.7. but cannot find it ( not surprising as it's not there!)

what is causing it to do this ?

( it complains that it cannot find 0.8.7. asks for an alternate path, then gives an error message when cancelled )

For some reason It is looking for the calibre-0.8.7.msi file. Download this msi and place it where it is looking and try again.

the install actually works ok, the error comes at the end of the install, when it's cleaning up.
I can try your download when next upgrade is released, but really the installer needs fixing.

I did one time go through the advanced installer options, a few weeks back, in order to tell it not to make a desktop icon, & possibly this issue began after doing that, though there's no obvious connection ?

That is odd.
I routinely file away the MSI file after an install. I have never been asked for a previous version.

It may be possible that a 'Registry Cleaner' or Disk Cleanup is corrupting the UNINSTALL info.

I was asked one time, many moons back, and supplying the file worked for me.

Yes it will work, but my point is: "what is destroying the uninstall info"?

well 8.8 will have removed 8.7, 8.9 removes 8.8 etc. I've done at least 3 updates since 8.7


so why does it expect to find 8.7, not 8.8, 8.9 or 8.10 all of which were installed after 8.7 ?

is it finding "something" that makes it think 8.7 is installed. I'd have said registry key but I understand that calibre does not use registry keys ?

was there a switchover from .exe to msi a few versions ago, could that be relevant ?

I can't answer your questions but it has been an MSI installer for over a year.

i recall that I used to have to unlock it via file properties before win 7 would run the installer, after downloading via Google. I don't see that now, but maybe it's because I now use a download manager.

but let me check my stash of old installers.... yes they all end in .msi
