UIM 9.1.0 (SP1) installer fails with message about fresh install


Article ID: 133046


Updated On:


DX Unified Infrastructure Management (Nimsoft / UIM)


Customer installed UIM server v9.02 into f:\nimsoft but the 9.1 SP1 installer doesn't find this install or allow the customer to  specify the install path. It just ends with a message about how it can't do a fresh install, or that instead of an upgrade a fresh install will be done.

This issue may occurs also when upgrading from 9.2 to 20.1


Release: UIM 9.0.2 upgrading to 9.1.0
Release: UIM 9.2 upgrading to 20.1

Component : UIM - INSTALL


- leftover references in installer registry file


Examine the Zero G registry file:



in the directory:

   C:\Program Files\Zero G Registry


Then edit it, and remove any references to the undesired drive, e.g., C:\,  in that file.
