Help! 2011 Installs Only - NOT 2012

296 Views, 8 Replies

It appears that I successfully downloaded the 2012 version for 64 bit.

 

However, the previous version of the application (2011) is the only version that will installs.

 

Why?

Thanks for your comments,

Install Issues - 64-bit NV Freedom 2012 & NVF 2011 Uninstall

10-26-2011 04:01 AM in reply to: chillme1

Assistance is needed in installing NavisWorks Freedom 2012 on a Win 7 64-bit system.

 

I deleted all support folders for NavisWorks Freedom 2011 but the attached message shows up while attempting to uninstall the Language Pack saying I must first uninstall 2011 N.V. Freedom.

 

Must I resort to modifying the REGISTRY?

Chill, Can you provide more information about the issue you're having? Are you sure you have a 64bit machine? What happens when you start running the installation? Do you have any error messages? Do you have the log file that you can upload?

Install the Windows CleanUp utility to remove NWF 2011 and the language pack.

This is the new tool from Microsoft to clean the corrupted installations (replacing the earlier tool)

Once the old version is cleaned up you can use the same utility to troubleshoot the 2012 installation error.

Thanks for your concern. It appears that the computer policies have changed and it appears that the installation issue was due to this policy change; not allowing non-administrators to install software.
