[cvsnt] RE: Problem upgrading to build 62

Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

The problem is that when I run the setup I don't see the install option...
It only says "Modify", "Repair" and "Remove". It also talks about maintenance
of the program... I think that this is because it has detected that the same
software has been installed before and so I am now only doing some extra stuff
like adding an option or the like.

This is how Microsoft/InstallShield does stuff.. :-(

I don't even get the option of changing the default directory to do a parallel
install, it all goes to the existing directory from the last install.

So the bottom line probably is that I have to uninstall CVSNT first and then use
the b62 setup to get it on-board again.

Don't do 'repair' it might not upgrade everything.  Use the 'install' option
(I've seen a couple of people recommend 'repair' but really this is playing
with fire as that option is not designed to be used for upgrades, and
doesn't do a full install).

No, it works fine - I run it on the build machines here to keep them up to
