Getting an error message "can't install 6.0.5"
« on: January 07, 2023, 04:25:58 PM »
I'm Getting an error message "can't install 6.0.5" because a newer version exists on this computer.There is no newer version. This is after I uninstalled all Weather Link related programs, links, Icons, etc. due to a corrupted 6.0.3 version  any ideas on where to look?

Had this in the past with an older version. The De-install went fine but the Weather Link folders were still in the program file folder and contained some files from the old version. Since I didn't use WL for any reporting deleting the remaining folders, a restart of the computer and a fresh full install of Weather Link 6.0.5 solved the problem. If you need to keep your data, back up the data folders before deleting everything.

Had something similar with a friend's Epson AIO printer software. After deleting the Epson program folder which wasn't removed by a de-install and doing a fresh install, the scanner portion of his printer started to work again.
