Recovering From a Botched Install

    I wanted to post a few installation lessons I learnt –

    1. If you have a bad install don’t remove the Hadoop directories and just try to reinstall, you must run add/remove programs first, or the re-install will silently fail.

    2. If you did do number one, you won’t be able to run add/remove programs without re-creating the install directory first.

    Hi Anthony,

    Thanks for the pointers, we’ll pass this along to others who have a botched install that they need to correct.
