Hi,

I am trying to do a clean re-install of Exp web4 but failing. Please could someone tell me how to get rid of the old configuration data that keeps re-appearing each time?

Here are the locations in Win7.  Win8 should be similar.  If your actual sites are under any of these (they can be anywhere you choose on the PC), you might want to save them first!

Delete these locations:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Expression
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Expression
C:\Users\<your logon>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Expression

(NB replace appropriate bit in last one with your Windows name/profile)

then delete following registry keys:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Expression
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Expression

Then reinstall.

Thanks sambda, that looks exactly like what I needed to know. I'll give it a go.

I have a complete Microsoft Expression 3 and its components which I want to upgrade to Expression Web 4; Expression Blend; Expression Encoder 4 and Expression Design 4. But I am not familiar with the changes such as SP1. SP2, etc,  download and installation location ( as I want to do a clear/clean re-installation).
Also do I need to delete/uninstall the Exoression 3 before installing the Expression 4?
I shall be grateful for any assistance Forum Members can provide. I amusing Windows 10.
Thank you.

Terence

EW4 will clean install right next to EW3 if thats what you want. When it asks where you want it installed just type in where you want it, instead of accepting the default. Then you need to update windows so that it will give you all the updates to EW4. Be aware that EW4 is no longer supported. That means after you update it initially, there are no more updates to be had.
