#638 new Bug / Defect

64 bit installer will not uninstall 32bit previous version

Reported by: Gert Döring Owned by: Samuli Seppänen
Priority: major Milestone: release 2.5
Component: Generic / unclassified Version: OpenVPN git master branch (Community Ed)
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords:
Cc: tincantech


Installed a 64bit "master" installer yesterday for testing on a win7/64 system that had a 32bit installation beforehand. Net result: two openvn installtions, one in "\program files\openvpn" and one in "\program files (x86)\openvpn".

Of course this is an operator error, but we *do* de-install a "same-bit-size" openvpn version if encountered beforehand - so maybe we should offer "found 32 bit installation. uninstall? yes/no".

In the community meeting on 28th Dec 2015 it was decided to warn the user about an existing 32-bit installation. This is easier than doing a full uninstall of a different bitness OpenVPN, which would warrant a similar warning box also.
