I have the following conflict when trying to install Flash Builder as part of the Master Collection CS 6 installation upgrade from CS 5.5 . As far as I know I only have FB 4.5 and FB 4 installed on the computer as well as a version of Edge Preview. Why am I getting this error? I have tried to run a cleanup tool but it does not produce an XML file as the readme says it should and it does not solve the conflicting message even after system restart.
Seems you still have some pre-release or beta application installed.
Try uninstalling the application completely from Control Panel and run the Cleaner Tool to remove the unwanted files and folders.
I have the same issue. Cleaner tool does not hetl, at least in my case. Do you mean that the whole CS5.5 Master Collection should be uninstalled? I have tried everything else:
I simply can't get rid of the conflicting version
What location is for OSX? I can't find "caps" in ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe.
And that databse files, do they contains information just about Flash Builder or about all Adobe products? Would there be no problems installing/uninstalling other Adobe products?
After installing it, rename the files back to be able to uninstall/upgrade the other products.
On mac it is in library.. which is hidden
so shift command G, or Go, folder
you should have a finder window open in library now.
mubhceab78: I think in your solution lies a problem. When you install FB 4.6 after renaming the Media_db.db and pdb.db, it installs a new version of Media_db.db and pdb.db with those filenames but a different filesize, hinting that it may have different content. With those files now on the system you cannot rename the "renamed" files back to the original files because there will be a filename conflict. Two files of the same name cannot exist in the same directory. So how do we solve that? Doesn't this mean that something will break in the uninstaller if you try to do what you're saying and try to uninstall FB 4.6 ?
Those are the installation.. logs, sorta.
So when you install a product, it will write to those files. I am guessing previous versions did not remove itself properly from those files.
What I would do on that, is after you install and it creates those two files, prefix the files with fbcs6- and then rename the others so you can modify/remove cs6 and other software. When the day comes to remove flashbuilder cs6.. rename again.
This of course is a workaround, not a solution, perhaps adobe will create a utility to go into those files and clear out the erronous entries.
