    I just wanted to update to the latest version, via the update feature in the console. after I clicked install, I followed the steps that should be. But, when entering a section like “you have a previous version, continue updating” the process seems to go smoothly, until the status “uninstalling spacedesk android control driver”, a notification appears.

    The notification dialogs “An error occurred while uninstalling the spacedesk driver. The uninstallation will complete with an error. Please do this setup again. restart the machine and run it”

    after that the installer application is stuck, not running anymore. i searched & followed the method on the official spacedesk web. it still runs like that. then i tried to repair/remove using the previous (.msi) installer (v1069). but, it has the same problem and stuck in the same status.

    is there any other solution, I can’t use spacedesk at all.

    Thank you.

    Hi @ravee,

    Have you tried rebooting your primary machine? could you please try rebooting and then remove the spacedesk driver using the .msi?

    if the issue still persists, please provide us with the following files:
    – run dxdiag.exe on your primary machine, click “Save all information” and send us the output file
    – spacedeskSetup.log file located in C:\Users\Public
    – setupapi.dev.log file located in C:\Windows\INF

    Please save all requested files in one folder, then right-click -> Send to -> Compressed (zipped) folder, then attach the *.zip file in your next reply.

    Hi @compexpert,
    Thank you very much for sending the required files.
    Based on the logs, v1067 was uninstalled properly. However, v1075 fails because there is a missing INF file. Could you please try installing the latest spacedesk Windows driver v1076? If it fails again, try to install it in a different folder.

    Hi Nicole,

    I have downloaded new version from your web site and tried installation on a new path. I still get the same error message. I have searched with uninstall software for all files from previous version, registry entries also searched. I could not find any files or registry keys. I don’t understand how the setup can find previous drivers.

    Is there a removal tool or can you send a file list where I can find the remaining files?

    Hi @compexpert,
    To make it clear, there was no problem with uninstall. The error occurs during the installation stage, and it fails because it cannot find the files generated in the destination folder.

    In this case, please try the following:
    1. Do not upgrade from old version to another. instead, completely uninstall spacedesk first via previous msi or Programs & Features
    2. Generate msi trace (msiexec.exe) of the spacedesk MSI installer while spacedesk is installing.
    to do this, please download the spacedeskMsiTraceGenerate.zip here:
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/vr17lj6n63k52rh/2022_spacedeskMsiTraceGenerate.zip?dl=0
    – extract the zip file
    – copy the spacedesk MSI installer you will use to install inside the folder then click the get_trace.bat
    – the script will prompt you to enter the MSI file name then press enter
    – it will run the spacedesk installer
    – change the destination folder (check if the destination folder is created)
    – if you encounter the error again, please send the spacedeskmsi_trace.txt generated inside the folder together with the dxdiag file and setupapi.dev.log file located in C:\Windows\INF
