I currently have 1.6.8 running on my Windows PC. I am trying to upgrade to 1.7.0 using xampp-win32-upgrade-1.6.8-1.7.0-installer.exe. I was preferring the upgrade route so that I would not overwrite configuration files and so on. The problem is that the installer stops with the following message.
"Need XAMPP Version 1.6.6/7/8 but cannot find this version. Stop installation."
I tried checking for version related files. The contents of two .version files I found did say 1.6.8.
I also checked the install directory to ensure the install.sys and the serverupdate.sys said 1.6.8.
So far, no luck. I am not sure what else to check as to why the installer thinks I don't have 1.6.8. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
