The MarcEdit MSI cleaner was created to help fix problems that would occasionally happen when using the Windows Installer. Sometimes, problems happen, and when they do, it becomes impossible to install or update MarcEdit. MarcEdit 7, from a programming perspective, is much easier to manage (I’ve removed all data from the GAC (global assembly cache) and limited data outside of the user data space), but things could occur that might cause the program to be unable to be updated. When that happens, this tool can be used to remove the registry keys that are preventing the program from updating/reinstalling.
In working on the update for this tool, there were a couple significant changes made:
- I removed the requirement that you had to be an administrator in order to run the tool. You will need to be an administrator to make changes, but I’ve enabled the tool so users can now run the application to see if the cleaner would likely solve their problem.
- Updated UI – I updated the UI so that you will know that this tool has been changed to support MarcEdit 7.
- I’ve signed the application…it has now been signed with a security certificate and now is identified as a trusted program.
I’ve posted information about the update here: https://youtu.be/HLnG8bczypQ.
