i installed the zipped version of battlegounds but i recently uninstalled this game and tried to install the new 'saga' game which i just bought, but when i try to install it, it says that i already have an older version installed, but i dont anymore, and it quits the installation, what can i do to get it working ? the error message says ' A previously installed version of star wars battlegrounds is detected. you must uninstall ir before you can install star was galactic battlegrounds sags. you will have the option to keep your saved games' i have searched and searched for any of the old setup files in the windows folder but have found none, and the old game does not show up on the 'add or remove programs' list. can anyone help me ?
here is my email, please contact me asap ! thanx

I copied my saved games files from their respective directory and put them where I could find them. Uninstalled the old version and then installed the CC and moved the saved games into the saved games directory.

You have to uninstall the previous version first before you can install Clone Campaigns.
