View Full Version : 6.5 Installation not overwriting some files?

While trying to diagnose a WMA related problem, I found out that the files under \SlimServer\server\Bin\MSWin32-x86-multi-thread were not updated when I installed 6.5.

I tried to reinstall, manually stop SlimServer, then reinstall etc, but no use. The files remain the old versions from earlier versions. In fact the files in the folder were dated from Nov 2005.

At the end, I manually deleted the files and install 6.5 again. And sure enough, newer files are finally written into the folder.

Maybe the installation is not overwriting all the old files? Wonder if anyone else has this problem or maybe this is just my machine acting up?

After a clean install, unintall, plus manually deleting the slimserver directory, then install 6.5, things seem better. try a clean install first. I really suspect some files are not being overwritten.
