Uninstall former versions
|Top Previous Next|
CAUTION: before uninstalling you should make a backup copy of your last Data file! The name of currently being used data file is always indicated on the main startup screen of Datagraph-med next to the 'Current data file:' label. All your data is kept in this file. If you used different data files you have to backup each of them separately. (Datagraph-med 4.06 will not delete or change your older data files. Making a backup copy is just a preventive measure against loss of data.)
To de-install Datagraph-med go to Windows-->System-->Software. Identify the version of Datagraph-med you want to remove and then click 'Remove'.
You may have to remove residual files in the Datagraph-med folder under 'C:\Programs\Datagraph...' manually using the windows Explorer. Datagraph is not uninstalling user defined data files or backup copies of data files. For that reason you will find a Datagraph-med folder in your program folder even after de-installation. We recommend you to move these files to a suitable location such as the network server or a clearly labeled folder on your local PC. After doing this you may remove any residual 'Datagraph-med' folders in your program directory before going on with the new installation.
If you had used an installation including the Runtime Version of MS Access it may be necessary to also remove this one. If you do not feel experienced enough installing MS Office components you may want to contact your local IT specialist. The Runtime Version of MS Access is a part of your local MS Office installation and it may become necessary to re-install or repair MS Office. Make sure your MS Office Installation CD is available before uninstalling.
Sometimes the de-installation Process via the system menu fails, especially when older versions of Datagraph and the MS Access Runtime had been installed. Microsoft has made an de-installation tool available. Details and download of the 'Windows Installer CleanUp Utility' here: Microsoft Software Removal Tool
