How do I reinstall MetaEdit+?
|Explanation:||I want to try the Windows evaluation version again, so I uninstalled and reinstalled MetaEdit+. When I log in I am told "License has expired. MetaEdit+ exiting...". |
|Solution:||The demo database is not removed by uninstall, nor overwritten by install - otherwise any work done by the user there would be lost. After reinstalling, you thus still have your old demo database, and MetaEdit+ knows that this has already been used for the full evaluation period.
There are three possible situations, and you must choose one of them and follow its instructions:
- You had nothing important in your demo database
=> Uninstall, delete the demo directory by hand, fill out the download form again to get a new evaluation code, download and install.
- You had something you still want in your demo database, and the current MetaEdit+ version is the same as you installed before
=> ask for more evaluation time from email@example.com
- You had something you still want in your demo database, and the current MetaEdit+ version is newer than the one you installed before
=> Uninstall, download again from here and install, ask for more evaluation time from firstname.lastname@example.org
