Description:
Hi,

I am unable to install mySql connector/net 6.3 version. I initially installed this on my windows 7 machine. Now, I am planning to install mysql-connector-net-6.4.4 . Whenever i tried to install this, its throwing a message saying, "A previous version of connector/Net 6.3 or higher is already installed.Please uninstall that version first" . I already uninstalled using windows control panel / programs and features. I even searched in registry and removed the keys associated with it. Still, its saying the same thing. Can you please suggest me how to uninstall it ?

Thanks a lot for your cooperation.

Regards,
Pradeep Daram.
