Ever since I’ve switched from ZoneAlarm Free to the Comodo Firewall, I have been impressed. And impressed. And impressed. Time and time again, Comodo manages to meet and execide what I hope was to be possible for free.
However, I have used Comodo Backup since 220.127.116.11 (I believe was the edition) and loved it too. Seeing nothing wrong with updating myself, I deleted it off my system to install the newest version. However, every time I click the installer, it comes up with
You Seem to be have Comodo Backup installed using an older version of installer. Please go to “Start->Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs” and please un-install Comodo Back up
The thing is… I don’t use that method. As a CCleaner fan, I used it to remove the program. And delete the registry keys.
If someone could drop me an e-mail at paul.davies0 [ at ] gmail.com to help, that would be wonderful. I rarely use these forums, but I am aware of their existance. Thanks again.
What version of Comodo Backup do you use?
If it is an old version 18.104.22.168, you can fix this problem:
Create some.reg file that contains string
WARNING! Execution of this string will remove all jobs and settings stored with version 22.214.171.124
If there is no more need in jobs and settings of old version you can run this reg file from command line. And then install new version of Backup.
A reg file can be a text file that you can simply save (through Notepad or some text editor) the extension as .reg instead of .txt after the filename, but you’ll most likely also need an extra line at the very top inside the file. For example, all you need in this file are these 2 lines:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
If you save it to your desktop for ease of use, double-click on the icon to execute the .reg file.
Alternatively, you can go to Start > Run > type regedit > Ok and it’ll open the registry. Just browse to that registry key and delete Comodo Backup.
