Webes V3.1-12 deinstallation problems

Hi,

Before installing a version V5.0 or V5.1 of WEBES on OpenVMS 7.3-2 we want to deinstall the old version of WEBES.

This poses some challenges.

The following product will be removed from destination:

Re: Webes V3.1-12 deinstallation problems

hi,

the v5.1 webes install guide mentions using the install menu option 'deinstall' to remove previous versions :-

Re: Webes V3.1-12 deinstallation problems

Hi,

That's the problem. There is only WEBES: NO SEA or WCCproxy. And the command procedure to delete WEBES is not present. And starting WEBES also fails because files are not present.

Re: Webes V3.1-12 deinstallation problems

Re: Webes V3.1-12 deinstallation problems

Hi,

For now we only tried to de-install the old version.

I will schedule some time just to install the new version. And let the outcome know in here.

This time I was trying to do it the proper way ;-)

Hi Robert,

I had the same error with deinstallation of WEBES V4.0-7

please try this (you will see more information):

So I just edit the procedure:

PCSI$DESTINATION:[COMPAQ.SVCTOOLS.BIN]REMOVE_OLD_CCAT_VERSION.COM

at the beginning with following line:

$desta :=="@SVCTOOLS_HOME:DESTA.COM"

Maybe this could help you.

Also important this logicals:


define/system/exec/trans=conceal SVCTOOLS_HOME DSA1:

and

defi/syst/exec PCSI$DESTINATION sys$common



After this changing the remove of WEBES was successful:

Portion done: 100%
The following product has been removed:

Re: Webes V3.1-12 deinstallation problems

It's been several years ago and very likely some versions earlier, but I found similar problems removing WEBES; I've found the installation adds some lines to the startup database, and de-installing keeps them tehre. You'll need to remove these entries by hand using SYSMAN.
