Hi, I used Axcrypt, and loved it. but then I accidentally had wiped the drive with axcrypt on it.
Obviously I can't access my encrypted files now. I got my drive back up and running, but with a new partition/letter.
I'm trying to reinstall, but the installer thinks I'm updating (since I never officially uninstalled the previous version), so It just automatically tries to install (or update) the program to the old drive path, which doesn't exist anymore. I can't find a way around this.
Any help would be extremely helpful. thank you!

  • Hello,

    This is really a problem with the Windows installer architecture, but anyway...

    Use the registry editor to delete all keys under HKLM\Software\Axon Data, and the same under HKCU. Reboot. Reinstall.

     
  • Thanks a lot! -Worked Perfectly.
    Yeah, I realized it was more of a windows installer error, but I thought I might as well post it here just in case.
    I had actually never used the System Registry Editor before this, but I looked it up and found out what you meant by "keys" and such, and it worked. Thank you.
