I had registered version of SQL Bundle of previous edition. I decided to try out new version since I am starting working with 2005 and my old version of SQL Bundle disappeared.
I specially used different folder to install the new version.
Why did it happen?
Does it happen to everybody or only to me?
It is big problem for me since I have projects that depend on this.

Thank you
Shimon

    Hello Shimon,

    Historically, only one version of SQL Bundle can exist on a computer. The installer of the latest version will try to uninstall the software from previous versions.

    You may be able to get away with installing the software to another computer and copying the necessary files to your computer, since the software is completely COM-free and should run on its' own.
  • OK.
    I just reinstalled the old one again and they work togather.
    In general it is a problem for beta versions. Can't we try without risking our work? :?:
    Thank you,
    Shimon

    Maybe next time... the version 4 is a final release as of today! I think I understand where you're coming from, though. It's doubtful that the older version would know about a newer version so it can remove it. Hopefully the two versions don't put conflicting entries in your registry!
