    Are you Mac or PC? If PC download CCleaner and uninstall the old Engine version

    First uninstall the new one you installed recently,
    Then Uninstall the old version,
    Do manual clean up, also from regedit,

    use 3rd party unistaller software for proper unistallation.
    then reboot and install what you need.

    No wonder people has problems. For starters is a difficult one and on top of that I think there's like 5 versions of 4 different groups. That must be some kind of record. I don't even count Independence releases.

    Anyways like has been said, use a good uninstaller, like Revo, to completely remove any traces of the one that gives you problems.
    In case you still have problems, a run of some good cleaner like CCleaner or Glary Utilities could seal the deal.

    That's why I never install anything .msi, because it is nothing but trouble. :( Leaves loads of garbage in your OS, generally the whole .msi installation, so you end up with double the space used. Always install .msi installations in a Virtual Machine like VirtualBox or QEMU and copy the files needed for a plugin to work manually into your system. Your OS will thank you. :wink:

    The only solution is for you to find the original .msi installation file and point the uninstaller to it. It's actually not the only solution, but the other one involves digging into the registry and deleting some registry keys related to this installation you're trying to get rid of and that can be tricky.

    I know how to do that and I needed to do it heaps of times, because I like to delete the .msi garbage from ProgramData if I installed something from an .msi file. So, learning from my own errors, I now make my own, simple "no install" installations and avoid installing from .msi files like a plague, especially if you don't have your OS on a 1TB or bigger SSD. :wink:

    I did a manual uninstall of an old Engine 2, then installed 2.8.0.58 on my Win7 PC, works fine.
    BUT it looks like Win95 with ancient Magix interface, even though it claims to be 2.8.0.58 (says so in the GUI).
    And all the libraries work in it.
    Why does it look like Ver 1? The text in the GUI is almost unintelligible.

    But doesnt this mean i can install the newer build on Win7? i mean i was able to install latest Live 11 version on windows 8.1 despite Ableton denied support for this windows version.

    So its worth a shot to install this newer on windows 7, maybe it just works?

    Whoa! I just tried fetching and installing that v2.6.1.2 Engine legit installer that Talula mentioned, with Win7 support. And it looks right! Thanks man.
    All the libraries are still there (fixed w R2R keygen), and work fine.
    I suppose there will be some libraries that won't work in the future, so I'll have to see what I do then.
