Automatic Upgrade Option in ProjectWise V8i (SELECTseries 3) Client Setups

If you have an existing ProjectWise Explorer V8i, ProjectWise Explorer V8i (SELECTseries 1), or ProjectWise Explorer V8i (SELECTseries 2) installed, you can use the ProjectWise Explorer V8i (SELECTseries 3) installer to automatically upgrade the version for you.

However, if there was once a version of ProjectWise Explorer V8 XM Edition installed and later uninstalled on this computer, then the ProjectWise Explorer V8i (SELECTseries 3) Setup Wizard will not be able to perform the automatic upgrade, and will display the following warning message:

“ProjectWise family product is already installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\Bentley\ProjectWise\ directory.”

There are two possible workarounds for this issue:

1. Close the ProjectWise Explorer V8i (SELECTseries 3) Setup Wizard, manually uninstall the existing ProjectWise Explorer, then install ProjectWise Explorer V8i (SELECTseries 3) as usual.

or

2. Close the ProjectWise Explorer V8i (SELECTseries 3) Setup Wizard, remove this registry key — HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Bentley\ProjectWise\08.09\Path — then resume the automatic upgrade.
