Windows 10 Home. Upgraded from 8.1. (Years ago).
Windows updated: To most current.
We uninstalled the last GlassWire by Revo Uninstaller. (as a last resort because we wanted to keep the red dots!!)
All traces (pc+reg) removed on medium/moderate lvl removal. [RevoScan during uninstall]
We tried reinstalling it to it’s own folder.
The previous install seemed to have installed itself in the download folder by mistake or bug.
When we reinstalled it 2 weeks ago, we had all sorts of issues with one of them trying to keep previous install information, yet when reinstalling and chosing the correct folder, it yet again installed itself to the download folder (in the same GW subfolder).
We have multiple users on that pc, and even though Revo installed it on one user, on the other user we still had the program lingering. Revo usually first alway tries and uses the program’s own uninstaller. So the uninstaller may have a flaw in it (too), preventing searching the entire pc to uninstall it from ALL accounts.
Aside from this lingering copy on another account after uninstall, at the reinstall it reinstalls it again and again in the download folder. And to make matters worse… THE PROGRAM DOES NOT LOAD!
Like in the comment in another thread (about the program refusing to install itself), we too get the same error popup about that missing dll!! (I forgot the name of the dll, but it was a dll, 100%!)
So that pc now got a non-working GlassWire. We could go back to an older version (If installing that is not impossible now too), yet every day that version will get the nag-popup to upgrade ofc…to a non-working version!!!
Clearly unacceptable, and unworkable.
Kindly look into it. We not got more users having this same problem. The new download=BROKEN!
(Tip: What happens to this dll when at one user [adm/adm] the program get’s uninstalled, and on another it is not?)
