Sometimes LUA, LiveUpdate Administrator just cannot be fixed short of uninstall-reinstall.

Exporting your configurations occasionally can save time on the rebuild if you want to import the configs into the new instance., BUT it would be very good to be able to run a Repair, by either

1. Running the install file, but instead of itsaying "(You already have this version of LUA installed)"  it just runs and does an overinstall/repair,  or

2. Under Add or Remove Programs, there is a Repair button.

If there is already an Idea for this, I want to vote for it and put a link to it here or someplace.

Thank you

Thx for the good suggestion John.

We've been working hard on continually improving overall stability and reliability so I'm hoping the num of times you would need such a feature will be very minimal. That said, we will add the feature request to the wish list for consideration (plus we did add the config export/import which can help also, as you say).

Best Rgds,


LUA Product Manager.
