Force installation of Toad Data Point


#1

Hello,

I had to restore my Windows installation to a previous version and since then am not able to reinstall Toad Data Point Beta 3.6.

It keeps checking for a previous version to uninstall first.

  1. It could not find the msi package for uninstallation and I therefore tried FixIt by Microsoft to force uninstallation

  2. I cleaned the register

  3. It still won’t install.

Is there an option to force installation of the Beta version?

Thank you for your help.

Regards,

Alexandre DOLIQUE.

Please try those steps to uninstall the beta manually:

  1. Download the beta msi installer

community-downloads.quest.com/…/ToadDataPoint_Beta_3.6.0.3248.msi

  1. Copy it to C:\windows\installer, this is a hidden folder, you need to type the path in windows explorer to bring it up.

  2. Run the following command

msiexec /x “C:\windows\installer\ToadDataPoint_Beta_3.6.0.3248.msi”

let me know if it helps.

Hello,

Thank you very much for your help.

I have tried, but it does not work, unfortunately.

Running the Microsoft FixIt program removal utility I guessed removed registery keys.

The msi installer is not able to find a valid installation of Toad Data Point 3.6 Beta.

Would you know which registery key or file the Beta .exe installer is checking to see if it needs to install a previous installation or not?

Probably the best would be for me to delete this key or file and go on with the installation.

Regards,

Alexandre DOLIQUE.

What exact message did you get? Can you send a screenshot?

Hello,

Thank you for your help.

The message is in French but here is the screen copy.

Basically it says that the action (uninstallation) is only valid for products already installed.

Thank you again.

Regards,

Alexandre DOLIQUE.

For some vague reason I was able to reinstall the Beta 3.6.

However, trying to start it, I keep having a crash with a non explicit error message.

Does that mean anything to you?

Please try re-run NGenWrapper.exe which is located in install directory. Let me know if it helps or not.

Thank you for your help Kiki.

Actually, I eventually managed to reinstall (from the downloadable .exe) Toad Data Point Beta 3.6 and got it to work.
