## install / deinstall

 hi all I'm stuck in an absurd situation: Had oo1.1 installed. everything was fine. installed 1.9 and things went smoothly. I converted all my files to the new format. tried to install 2.0 and the problems began: oo installer told me that I had a previous version installed. So I deinstalled previous versions. After that oo2 installer still said the same thing. So I removed the install directories and cleaned the registry a bit. oo2 installer still whined same thing, so I cleaned more throughly the registry. Now oo2 installer says I have a previous version of oo2 installed (haven't had the opportunity yet!!). Tried to reinstall oo1.9 So I could convert my dear .odt files. won't do. So here I am. Can't install oo2 nor oo1.9. The keys I cleaned / erased from the registry were: soffice openoffice oo .org 1.9 2.0 msi So. I'm asking if someone knows the registry key oo2 installer is reading. Any help appreciated though! :) TIA --------------------------------------------------------------------- To unsubscribe, e-mail: [hidden email] For additional commands, e-mail: [hidden email]

 Also delete the ALL OpenOffice files in the C:\Documents and Settings\yourname\Application Data subdirectory.
