Re: Unable to clean out the old versions of CoApp


Hey there!

I think I found what's going on; the cleaner isn't as good as the bootstrapper at finding the old versions.

Try this:

Open an elevated command prompt (run as adminstrator)
and run:

c:\> wmic product where vendor='OUTERCURVE FOUNDATION' call uninstall

it will take a few minutes, and remove out all the ancient versions. I'll make a note to clean harder :)

Subject: [Coapp-developers] Unable to clean out the old versions of CoApp


I have problem installning CoApp on my computer. When I try to install
CoApp it says I have an old version of it (yes, I have installed CoApp
before but removed it with CoApp Cleaner).

So basically the installer tries to remove CoApp but it fails and
gives me Sad face of Death:

"Unable to clean out the old versions of CoApp.
For assistance you can visit http://coapp.org/help/619";

Unfortunately the url doesn't work so I don't know what to do.

Best regards,
