Ticket #7928 (closed defect: obsolete)
Cannot install version 4.0 because installer cannot uninstall previous version

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
I am running 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate. I had previously installed and used an older version of Virtualbox (not certain which version, but suspect it was 3.2). However, I uninstalled it and I suspect it was not properly removed via the uninstaller. As a result, when I try to install this latest version (4.0), the installer stops and says it cannot uninstall the older version of Virtualbox. I have tried to reinstalled all the older version of Virtualbox from 3.2 all the way to 3.0 without success (I get the same error message about not being able to uninstall the older version of Virtualbox). I have included the installation log file.
