    Well I used RT 2.07 and wanted to give 2.08 a try. I uninstalled 2.07 while keeping settings and profiles because i just wanted to update. Now I'm always getting this annoying message as you can read in the topic. I tried the whole evening to make it work by editing the registry, deleting RT related values, stopping running services, killing running processes and so on. But no luck so far.

    Installing RT 2.08 is not possible for me. Any advises?

    @Unwinder I know this has been asked several times with earlier versions of RT, I found some of those posts in the advanced RT section, sorry to bother you again...

    Try this:
    1) Reboot
    2) Kill off the temporary files:
    For Vista:
    C:\Users\<Your Windows User Name>\AppData\Local\Temp
    For Xp
    C:\Documents and Settings\<Your Windows User Name>\Application Data\Local\Temp
    3) Reboot again
    4) Install RT.
