Nero will not install over previous version ?

Post by Tony Benha » Sun, 15 Dec 2002 03:43:46

I had a win98 installation running my oem copy of nero that came with my
Liteon cdrw which worked fine. For  other unrelated reasons I wanted to
change over to win2000. I did a clean install of win2000, rather than
upgrade my win98 installation to win2000, and after win2000 was working
deleted my old win98 folders, and started reinstalling my applications. When
I got to Nero basically it will not reinstall ! It reports an older version
of nero is installed, and gives me a dialog to remove it which I OK, and
then an option to restart which I do. However when I reboot it still detects
an old installation, and again asks to remove it. I can't get pass this
point. What is going on. I removed the old ahead software directories, and
any regsitry keys but still no change. So I have a perfectly legal piece of
sw that I cannot install !
Is there any way to do this install ? I have emailed Ahead but got no reply.
