8.1.3 update

Recommended Posts

I keep getting a request to update my Free Anniv Edition to the new Edition, 8.1.3. I request the download and am able to complete the download but when I go to install I get a fatal error ( C:\DOCUME21\PAUL\LOCALS21\Temp\mia1\Ad-AwareAE.msi) and the older edition remains. Do I need to uninstall the old edition first or what??

Yes, installing over the top seems to cause this problem. You can try uninstalling through Add/Remove, but might get a similar message. Best results for a clean uninstall is to do it yourself manually or using a program like Revo Uninstaller (revouninstaller.com). On the highest setting, it will remove Lavasoft/Ad-Aware.

When you install the new version, execute the installer from your HDD/desktop, not the browser temp download file. I also close other apps/processes while installing to avoid any conflicts.
