Hello Markus,

 

You could try the update the VCRM, VCA and System Management Homepage software beforehand, then try your update.

If that does not work, try the install without the VCRM installed and choose a custom install and leave the VCRM option empty. Not a nice solution but you could give it a try. If that works you can always install the VCRM software afterwards.

 

Kind regards,

 

Andrew

Hello Andrew,

 

thanks for your reply

 

the VCRM and the System Managagement Homepage are already on Version 7.3

 

those method sound's good but won't work.

Then i wanted to uninstall the IC package but it doesn't work (the uninstaller will hang, no response 2 times)

 

a case is opened now.

i will post the solution here.

 

best regards

Markus

Hello again, Sometimes the uninstall fails while deleting the traps directory. Perhaps not your problem but take a look in the traps directory under the default install folder. If there aore a lot of files the uninstall fails.

 

Good luck!

Kind regards,

Hi all,

 

at the end of all, only a new installation of Windows OS might be the solution.

 

thanks for your support

Last option could be as tou said a fresh install of the OS reinstall 7.1 and reconnect to your old database, if the database was not installed localy. Then you could try an other update, this way you would not lose your config.
Kind regards,

Andrew
