    I downloaded build 786 and attempted to do a repair/upgrade install. It appeared to install, and I rebooted. TI would open but it had lost all scheduling information for all of my tasks. Attempting to set the scheduling times would fail when it prompted for the user and password. I had to uninstall, reboot, install, reboot, and then I could restore the scheduling information. This happened on the last upgrade to build 774 as well. In fact, for 774 I had to completely recreate all of my scheduled tasks. At least this time it only lost the scheduling data.

    Also, why can't the installer remember with a simple registry entry where I installed it last time? Nearly all of my other software does so and defaults to the last install location when I do an upgrade.

    My upgrade experience:

    I d/l 786, did an uninstall of 774 via Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel, rebooted, and then installed 786. I have one "scheduled" task that is not set for a specific time, but runs "on-demand" when selected and started. The settings for this task were retained. I imagine it's in the registry and the uninstall did not remove it.

    The scheduled task settings were all kept, except for the actual time schedules. Also, it wouldn't accept a valid user and password for the tasks when I did the upgrade install. If the upgrade install doesn't work, then the installer should be changed to detect the previous installation and uninstall it first. I have other software installers that work just that way. Of course, it should still remember where I installed it before.
