This issue has been solved. See solution.

Dear All,

             I am in a testing phase for the Backup exec 2010, when i run the environment checks before installation on the new media server

i got warning says "Backup exec remote agent for windows systems version 10.0.x is installed on this computer.Uninstall the remote agent before continuing the installation for Backup exec"

I already has a remot agent for other version installed on this server,I would like to install the new version on this server as it Ok, or I should remove it before installation ??

You can only have one version of remote agent on a server, so you need to remove the BE 10 remote agent before you can install the BE 2010 remote agent.

However, note that BE 10.0 cannot communicate with BE 2010 remote agent.  If you need to backup this server using your existing BE 10.0 media server, you would need to do your testing in another way.
