I tried installing SeaMonkey 2.49.1, from 2.48, and started having problems immediatly. I only get a message that says "Your computer must be restarted to complete a previous upgrade of SeaMonkey. Do you want to reboot now?". I've tried rebooting at least 10 times, as well as disabling the anti-virus program (I even tried uninstalling it completely). How can I get past this so I can install SeaMonkey properly again?

See if you have leftover "crud", viewtopic.php?p=14782453#p14782453.
Maybe something in there is gumming things up?
Maybe rename \updates\ to \updates-haha\, then try the install again.

Uninstall SeaMonkey.
Verify that it is completely gone from "Program Files" (including the SeaMonkey directory itself, rather then just being empty).

So I guess places like:
C:\Program Files\SeaMonkey
and/or
C:\Program Files (x86)\SeaMonkey

(Not really sure where it installs to?)

Return to SeaMonkey Support
