installing 1002 error

Unread post by daveplummermd »

I am running Build1001 CE and have downloaded 1002 CE. On installation, I receive the Windows Installer dlg box :
vpi1002.jpg (42.13 KiB) Viewed 321 times
The previous builds have allowed the previous versions to remain installed (all the way back to 5.2, a good idea).

Can you advise on the proper installation sequence and requirements?

Thanks in advance

There is no change in that respect, you can have Vip 5, 7,.. and 10 as like, but you cannot have two instances of Vip 9 or two instances of Vip10. Actually Visual Prolog itself doesn't mind you can have as many as you like, but when making installers you will have to decide which is the same and should be considered updates and which is different and should be able to live together.

If you insist on having both build 1001 and build 1002 then you can simply take a copy of the entire ProDir directory before uninstalling 1001 and installing 1002, then 1001 will be in your copy and 1002 will be in the official installation place.
