I had previously installed an Ubuntu One client as a test on a Windows XP machine. Now I wanted to change the account for the client to a production one but had problems changing the email address so decided to do a reinstall.
- Ran uninstall.
- It downloads, goes through the unpacking/install – strangely some of the messages say updating as if it was replacing something that was already there.
- I do not get the setup/signin screen. There is no
ubuntu%processes running. The
Program files/ubuntuonedirectory exists with data and dist folders.
- The U icon is on the desktop – pointing at
ubuntuone/dist/ubuntuone-control-panel-qt.exebut this does not run.
Ran uninstall again, deleted
Program files/ubuntuone directory, removed any ubuntu entries for registry, remove all 'application data' ubuntu files and directories, rebooted. Downloaded install again - exactly the same as above.
From the deleted registry entries the previous successful install was 2.0.3, I therefore re-installed 2.0.3 and everything is working again. Not sure if this is a problem with this computer or a more general problem with 3.0.2 and XP?
