Memeo AutoBackup

#1
I have been using Memeo AutoBackup with Vista (came with my Free Agent external HDD) without much issue. I didn't even think about it when switching to Win7. Now that I have, however, it won't run. Not much problem, just uninstall and use someting else, right? Well, the installer won't run either, stating that AutoBackup isn't deisgned for this version of Windows. I tried compability, but it still won't budge. Any ideas?

You won't be able to restore that backup with out the original software.

For future use, you can get a very good backup program called Free Paragon Drive Backup 9.0 Personal Edition

You have to provide your email and they will send you a registration key:

Yeah, I realize that I won't be able to restore the backup on this computer. I'm just trying to get the program out.

Probably not a huge deal, since I'll end up doing a clean install at some point in time...

Sorry, but when you stated
Well, the installer won't run either,
I assummed you were trying to re-install

Actually a "clean" install is the only way to go.

Why not download it direectly from MS, this will then remove all the leftovers from the upgrade.

That's exactly why a 'clean" instll is the perferred method:)

Removing Memeo

I have been using Memeo AutoBackup with Vista (came with my Free Agent external HDD) without much issue. I didn't even think about it when switching to Win7. Now that I have, however, it won't run.

I have done all of this myself and had the same problem. I did an upgrade to Win7, I wanted to see how the upgrade behaved and know it is not the preferred method. When it became apparent that Memeo was not going to run, I began trying to uninstall and that is what I want to do. I was unsuccessful at uninstalling and so went to the registry and removed every reference to Memeo. Now every time I start windows, the Win installer begins with no reference to a particular program, eventually the installer just goes away. Its irritating and I have downloaded and run the win ofc installer cleanup, no effect.
