Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
I'v got that too
[link removed] Sorry Susan. :)
Rip the old one out... install the new one.
Been there, done that.
When you are faced with a horked up half installed Zune deployment.. I had to uninstall the Zune software and reinstall the new one.
It's the only way I could get the software installed because it kept failing and there was nothing else I could do as the add/remove wouldn't work.
Granted I'm hoping that the NOD/Defender and Haute Secure would warn me if that was code that was backdoored or something... but it did what I needed.. got the old software off because the Microsoft installer couldn't do it.
I hate it when that happens. It happened to me on a MCE 2005 machine with Roxio 7.x. I was pretty furious.
I have no excuse for our stuff though. It should work. Period.
However, computer science is still not an exact science. I wonder what it will be like 20 years from now. Self healing systems?
I'm not sure anyone is getting what this post is about. Replace the string '%1!s!' in the dialog box above with f***ing. I know it's little rough for a public post, but we had a good chuckle about it when Kevin spotted it.
