    Hi I am upgrading from Beta2 to SitefinityRC. At home it worked fine but at work it seems to have an Issue installing. When installing I get this error:
    ==
    Error Creating virtual directory telerik/TIUSite
    Exception details:
    Could not find a part of the path 'C:\Program Files\telerik\Sitefinity3.0\Project Manager\EmptyProject\Admin'
    ==
    I noticed that there is not EmptyProject directory under C:\Program Files\telerik\Sitefinity3.0\ProjectManager.

    I am not sure what is happening. So I tried uninstallling all remains of the beta sitefinity and the same occurred. To remove it I deleted telerik/sitefinity3.0 directory, deleted VR in IIS, deleted start menu items.

    Not sure what else i can do.. maybe some registry things left behind.

    Hello Paul,

    I suppose that you are upgrading Sitefinity by running the installation wizard without firstly removing the old Sitefinity version. You must do this first and after that install the new RC version. We also recommend that you upgrade subsequently through all the Sitefinity versions from beta 2. This includes, beta 3, beta 3 upgrade and release candidate. Please find all instructions attached to this thread.

    Let us know if you have any other questions or problems.

    All the best,

    That would be ok if I knew what version I was currently on. I have NFI what version I was currently running on this workstation. I have played around with the directories etc...

    Um..
    How can I do a clean install?
    What do I need to delete in order to get rid of all previous beta versions?
    I tried removing program files/IIS/start menu..
    what else do i need to remove?

    Hi Paul,

    To do a clean install you will need first to uninstall all previous Sitefinity 3.0 versions. Do this from the Add/Remove programs tool in Control Panel. Another way to uninstall your old Sitefinity version is to delete all files except the project ones under Program Files\telerik\Sitefinity 3.0 . This way you should remove the virtual directories too. This should be enough for removing the old version.

    Do not forget to back up your project and database.

    After uninstalling your old version and installing the new one follow the instructions from the upgrade file we have already sent you.


    Let us know if you experience problems while trying to upgrade your project.


    Best wishes,
