    Trying to test the new brand ECHO series on Old Agents Clients (ATI 9.1), I began install the new Agent there.

    That clients was working fine in the past with version 9.1, the only workaround was to delete the ag_fconnect.dll file from Common folder.

    I start installing without removing the old one, just for not lost the schedulle setings.

    I notice that was not upgrade it, instead of it was copied (newly files with the *echo* pattern) in the same folder under Common\Aconis\Agent.

    Well all goes fine, no error during installing the component.

    But, test were not posible anymore on that Agent. So i decide to remove the newest installed Agent.

    Was not posible, every start removing it from control panel, uninstall proccess begin and ends with this message:

    "The installation was interrupted before Acronis True Image Echo Agent could be installed. You need to restart the installer and try again."

    Perhaps it´s a cause of a previous version installed on that machine.

    Can anyone help me to uninstall this Component?

    I will switch back to version 9.1 on that Agent

    Thanks in advance.
