Carbide Developer and Carbide Professional share the same name: uninstall problem
This is a [B]warning [/B]more than a problem.
In Windows XP control panel I went to uninstall Carbide Professional and I found "Carbide.C++ 1.1" and "Carbide.C++ 1.1_2". If you dont watch out you will uninstall the WRONG version. How? read on.
The "numbering" (why?) is based on the order you install the programs.
I removed the same one as I removed on another PC I was testing on ok.
There is only one license allowed ,detects other install attempts(neat).
I installed [U]Pro [B]then [/B]Developer[/U], so when I removed "Carbide.C++ 1.1" I had removed Pro.
Now I went back to my orignal PC and removed "Carbide.C++ 1.1".
and I REMOVED [B]DEVELOPER[/B]!. [I][U]Developer was called "Carbide.C++ 1.1_2" because I installed it [B]after [/B]Pro.[/U][/I]
It would appear that due to installing [U]Developer [B]then [/B]Pro [/U]the naming has changed.
Would it be really that difficult to make the installer flag the programs with the name of the products name, after all[I] "Carbide.c++ Express" is just that, and thats the free version.[/I]
Due to licence restraints and requirements I cannot reinstal Developer, without having to restore the PC from backup to continue evaluation.
On licensing I like the fact that a message saying that the system clock has been put back so backups after the evaluation will be worthless.
