Hello guys, I am new to this forum!

I am also new to Glassfish and I have some minor problem that I don't know how to fix. I unistalled Glassfish 2.1.1 from a directory and now I can't install it into the same directory path. I unistalled using unistall.exe, deleted all the files that were left behind and when I try to install it again, I get this message:

Existing installation has been detected in this directory. Please select another directory or uninstall existing installation before proceeding. If you choose to continue without uninstalling previous installation, installation might fail.

I checked the product registry and couldn't find any trace of the glassfish. Anyone knows what might be the problem and how to fix it?

Thank you!

It's probably some holdover files in the file system. The directory GlassFish wants to install files to probably has some stuff in it. If you delete (and the containing directory too, is not a bad idea), the installation should proceed normally.
