Barry,
How far did the installation get when you tried to install? Is there a Solid
Edge 2D Drafting program folder? If you try to install again, do you get an
error stating that there is an existing installed product?

the files and I say yes to all. It reloads the files then at it says that the InstallScript
engine on this machine is older than the verision required to run this setup.

Re: How to do an uninstall

Barry,
There are multiple steps to the installation. These are automated by running
the .exe.
The first step is to unzup the .exe file into a temporary location so that
installation can be run. This creates the installation files on disk.
The second step is to actually run the installation using the unzipped
files.
From what you describe, it is succeeding on the first step, but not actually
installing the software.
So, when you try to run the .exe again, it is simply overwriting the
temporary installation files, not the software.
There is nothing to uninstall because the software has not actually been
installed.
What operating system are you running? (XP, Vista) (Home, Professional)
Try the following:
Run the .exe file again.
Write down the path to the folder where it unzips the installation files.
There is a file there 'ISScript115.Msi'. Double click on that file.
If that does nothing, then run the following from a command line:
"msiexec.exe /i \ISScript1150.Msi"
Let me know how it goes.
