Hello, i am unsure where to post this so i am trying here.

We started using netbeans platform about a year ago. This week we
have upgraded the platform from 7.1 to 7.3 and also changed our
application version.

I made a copy of our current build. Changed the application name
(from Zirius 3.0 to Zirius 3.1), changed the branding name from
zirius to zirius31.

When i install now on a clean computer everything works fine, but if
i install on a computer that has the old version installed it gives
the error

"Zirius 3.1 is already installed at c:\Program Files (x86)\zirius31.
It is not possible to install it again.

However the folder "c:\Program Files (x86)\zirius31" does not exist,
but c:\Program Files (x86)\zirius does and contains the old 3.0

How can i get this to work properly?

Probably you have to increase a version of application/bundle/component somewhere in properties of installer. The installer found the version in own registry thus assumed the application is installed already.

Run the installer again (w/ --output option) and check the output in detail.

Hope it helps,
