    :) Not too long ago, I had LnS 2.06p2 installed on my laptop. Due to some corrupted files, I had to re-install LnS, but I am only able to install version 2.06p1. I have downloaded the p2 installer, but when I run it, nothing changes, and LnS still shows 2.06p1. Or, should I just not worry about it and leave it at that version? Thanks in advance for any advice that will allow me to get p2 installed again. :D

    Hi,

    Nothing happens at all, or do some installation dialog boxes open anyway ?

    Maybe there is something wrong with the Windows Installer package.

    Assuming VC2005-SP1 is already installed, here is a direct link to the usual Look 'n' Stop setup:
    http://looknstop.soft4ever.com/Beta/2.06p2/LooknStop_Setup_206p2.exe

    Could you try it ?

    Thanks,

    Frederic

    Frederic,
    That link worked perfectly well, and 2.06p2 installed successfully! I don't know why, but I must have not been using the correct installer package. Thanks very much for your help!:D

    Thanks for the update.

    Did you have anyway some dialog boxes with the other Setup, or nothing ?

    My version just says Version 2.06 May 19 2007. Is there a newer version 2.06p2?

    There was a very brief dialog box, saying, I think, only that LnS was being set-up or installed. Then, that disappeared and nothing else occurred.
    With the link/installer you gave me, it was completely different, and I knew it was working. There was a dialog that said there was another version installed, do you want to replace it? I did not see this at all with my previous attempts. I tried previously with the link in post #1 of this thread:
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=194644
    I tried many times using this link, and nothing happened. (I have Windows XP Home Edition, so I tried the Win32 link)
    But, the link you gave me worked immediately.
    Thanks again for your help!:)

    Yes, there is a 2.06p2 version (which is a beta version) is available.
    There is a sticky post here for it.

    Ok thanks for the information. This is the first report like this.

    The setup from the second link I gave, is anyway the one included in the standard package (from the sticky post).
    The difference is it is part of another Windows Installer package in order to automatically installs the VC2005-SP1 library (when required). But an error or something wrong should happen in your case and this pre-step (before starting the real setup) is aborted with no error message...
