There are no instructions on upgrading in the Web UI Guide https://duplicacy.com/guide.html. A quick search on “how to upgrade web ui” showed a couple of confused threads, but nowhere do I find a clear step-by-step set of instructions.
Anyway, I forged ahead without instructions. I didn’t recall specifically if it’s needed with Web UI, but I ran the 1.6.2 installer as admin, to make sure the service got installed. It completed, complained that the service was already installed, and “finished.” Surfed to the 127… Web UI IP and it’s still version 1.5.0. In Program Files/Duplicacy Web Edition are two exe files, 1.5.0 and 1.6.2. Can’t delete 1.5.0 - “The action can’t be completed because the file is open in Duplicacy Web Edition.” What?
Seeing the …Uninstall.exe in the folder, I realized I didn’t uninstall 1.5.0. I ran the uninstall, it “finished,” but trying again to install 1.6.2 produced the same result. I noticed that the Uninstall process didn’t change any of the files in Program Files/Duplicacy Web Edition. I rebooted and still can’t delete the 1.5.0 exe.
Rummaging around some more, I notice that there’s a DuplicacyWebEdition folder in AppData/Local, which contains only a 1.6.2 exe, among some other files that are duplicated in Program Files/Duplicacy Web Edition. Why are these files in two places? Will I get different results if I run the uninstall.exe from AppData?
This whole thing is quite confusing. I’d just like to upgrade to 1.6.2 and it shouldn’t be this difficult. I will be grateful for some assistance.
