Hello everyone,

I am very new to the Glassfish, but so far I am enjoying it.

I have a problem though - I had Glassfish 2.x (will be upgraded later to a newer version) installed in C:/Sun, but had to uninstall it. Now, when I tried to re-install it into the same directory, I had this message:

"Existing installation has been detected in this directory. Please select another directory or uninstall existing installation before proceeding. If you choose to continue without uninstalling previous installation, installation might fail."

It provides to option - install Glassfish into a new directory or proceed (in the later case, it will be a buggy installation).

I uninstalled it using uninstall.exe, removed the left-over files and I can't seem to find any trace of glassfish in product registry. I have no idea, why I can't re-install Glassfish in this directory anymore.

Thank you
