If you were using our older EXE installers, or have encountered an issue in a new build, we recommend a clean installation.
The old EAPs were installed using a self-extracting executable (SFX), so there was no uninstall for them. You have to manually remove the files.
At this point, if you have already installed the MSI based Gaea EAP 6002, first uninstall that using the shortcut in the start menu (“Uninstall Gaea EAP”) or from the Control Panel. Then follow the steps below.
Archon.exeare not running in Task Manager. End those processes if they are.
C:\Program Files\QuadSpinner\Gaea EAP. If you have multiple installs, delete all of them to avoid contamination.
C:\Users\[YOU]\AppData\Roaming\QuadSpinner\Gaea. Please note, this will remove all your preferences so you will need to re-enter your settings.
Gaea does not use the registry for any functional purposes. There is no need to clean registry entries, as they don’t affect the workings of the software.
With the old Gaea EAP and its residual traces removed, you can install anew. See the steps at the top.
If Gaea does not launch or fails in between, run the Watson Diagnostics Tool in the start menu and send the log (generated on your desktop) to QuadSpinner Tech Support.
