Installation foun an existing Solid Edge Product

N/A

When I tried to install SEfree2D the following message appeared:
Installation shield gives me the following message:
"Solid Edge 2D Drafting V19 Setup has found an existing SEProduct. Please use Add/Remove
Programs applet to uninstall Solid Edge."
In an earlier thread Mastercam was pointed out as an reason, but no further explanation.
I'm using Mastercam 9.1 and X2 in my shop and wonder if there is a solution to install
SEfree2D together with Mastercam products?

Dag,
Mastercam has placed an entry in the registry so they can read the solid
bodies out of Solid Edge files. They should have put it under Mastercam, not
under Solid Edge. If you are not opening Solid Edge files with Mastercam,
you can just remove that registry entry.
How much do you know about the registry?
If you understand how to look through the registry, I can tell you what to
delete.

Hello Rick.
I have worked around in registry several times and think I can delete the necessary
keys if you would guide me, please.
The last 18 monts I have had no use for importing solids from Solid Edge and probably
this will be the case in future to.
Regards.

Dag,
There are two keys to look for
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Unigraphics Solutions/Solid Edge
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Unigraphics Solutions/Solid Edge
If either of these two entries are there, delete them.
