NodeXL Basic install error

Oct 13, 2015 at 7:02 PM
I had an install of "Old" NodeXL that worked fine (thanks!). I wanted to install the new NodeXL Basic. So I uninstalled my "Old" NodeXL, downloaded the NodeXLBasicExcelTemplate2014Setup.exe and ran it.
I am getting an error:
"Unable to install this application because an application with the same identity is already installed. To install this application, either modify the manifest version for this application or uninstall the preexisting application."
There is more to the error; I can provide the Exception Text which starts at "Microsoft.VisualStudio....InstallAddIn()"

But I already uninstalled my existing NodeXL install, so I'm not sure what else to do. Can anyone help? Running Windows 7 Enterprise Service Pack 1 64-bit
Thank you!

Thanks Marc,
I went over to your other thread and that fixed the install NodeXL Basic problem, i.e., removing the funny folder manually fixed the problem.
Thanks for your help and Good Luck with NodeXL Pro!
