Photshop Elements 3 wont install

  Nerex 21:26 25 Oct 2005

Hi, i am trying to install this but I get the error message "Another version of this product is already installed.Insallation of this version cannot continue. To configure or remove the existing version of this product, use Add/RemovePrograms in the control panel".
I have already done this (Elements 2) and searched and removed every reference that was left during the uninstall.
Where have I gone wrong?.
Any help appreciated. Thanks

When you uninstalled ver 2, did you reboot afterwards?

If you did, and it still didn't work, I would be tempted to try installing PE2 again, reboot, then uninstall again, reboot. Then try to install PE3 again.

Have you looked at adobes website for faqs and/or forum ?s relating to your prob, chances are someone else has had and sorted it.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for replying. I did try re-installing but had the same results. I'm in the process of searching forums at the moment.

Thanks again

If this product is installed using the Windows Installer you could try the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility click here

Nerex, glad you got it sorted.
