    Default Uninstalling Beta, Installing Live patcher

    Hey, I un-installed the RIFT beta but I think something went wrong.

    When I go to install the Live patcher it says

    "The setup has detected that no version of RIFT is installed. The Specified command-line options require that the application be installed to continue.
    The setup will now terminate"

    I deleted all the extra files in the rift directory and in my /users/ directory.

    What now?

    I had the same problem. Uninstalling the RIFT beta from the Windows 7 control panel did not remove the game files.

    Where do you find the Live Patcher at?

    I just noticed this too. When I tried to uninstall the Rift beta, nothing was removed. Installing that Rift live client created a new directory, but the old beta files still exist. Hopefully this doesn't cause any problems because now I have no ways of removing the old beta files without manually deleting them.

    Is it necessary to delete the Beta client if you bought the game on STEAM?

    WHENEVER YOU INSTALL A NEW VERSION- GET RID OF THE OLD VERSION FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It's no different than installing a new OS, a new driver, etc- always best to start with a clean palet... regardless of what you have heard, read, seen. Uninstall from the Beta and primary client if you didn't... remove it all and then install a fresh- clean- copy.

    If you are still having errors... It could be the 1000s of us who are desparate to start playing competing for limited network resources... (sorry we are just closer than You).

    Try again later.

    Bump because I still am having this problem and can not install.

    "The setup has detected that no version of RIFT is Installed. The Specified command-line options require that the application be installed to continue. Setup will now terminate."

    I've uninstalled through the control panel, deleted the RIFT beta folder, and still getting this BLEEPIN error. Why has no one responded from tech on this issue?

    Figured it out myself. I think it has something to do with the uninstall via windows control panel leaving garbage in the registry. I ran AVG's free 1x pc tuner to clean my register and then was able to get the LIVE patcher work.
