Object already exists error during installation.

Tried:
Upgrade with previous version installed.
Uninstalled manually and install

Is this an issue others are seeing?

Someone has offered a solution from here:
http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-2267901/installing-program-error-object-exist.html
Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2918614)
Uninstall this update, hide it, reboot and....problem fixed. Now try to re-install your software. I had the same problem with Java and some other programs. Got this fix from another site with people who had the same problems.
I'm not sure how viable it is.

Sometimes the following steps can resolve installation issues:
  • Right click and Install from old .msi
  • Right click and Repair from old .msi
  • Right click and Uninstall from old .msi
  • Download the current .msi again (in case it was corrupted the first time).
  • Right click and Install from current .msi
Otherwise if you are looking to clean out an installation manually, following must be removed.
Directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\MidSpace\
Directory: %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Temp\SEToolbox
Registry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MidSpace

I do not take any responsibility for you modifying your registry. Please make sure your computer is backed up and appropriate restore discs and System Restore point has been made.

Hi Zalpha,

I have not heard back from you.
Did the above sort our your installation issues?
Or are you still having trouble?

I'm so sorry. Yes, that fixed it. Thanks!
