  1. Thanks, Typhoon!  I had the same problem, had to uninstall CCM Framework Tools and DCM Authoring Tools first.  I didn’t have the Trace32 issue, however.

    nevermind found the DCM unistaaller, helpful error messages would me more helpful.

    Typhoon87, It will probably show up in Add/Remove Programs as “CCM Framework Tools”.

    As a warning, the upgrade did not go very smoothly for me (at least as far as Trace32 is concerned). It left the program registration/association pointing to the path of the old Trace32.exe.

    This is stored at: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTApplicationsTrace32.exeshellopencommand

    The path was left at:

    "C:Program FilesConfigMgr 2007 ToolkitCCM ToolsTrace32.exe" "%1"

    I manually changed it to:

    "C:Program FilesConfigMgr 2007 Toolkit V2Trace32.exe" "%1"

    This got it working for me. It was a bit weird because the broken registration was preventing me from associating it using the GUI method (I am running Windows 7 x86 if that matters).

  4. Typhoon87 says:

    Could you please tell me how to remove the V1 of these tools. Running the installer tells me to remove the old version manually first, but it does not appear to show up in programs and features, and there is no uninstaller in the program files folder. How do I remove version 1 of the tools?

  5. Typhoon87 says:

    Thats what I get for taking the time to read an error box and a previous version of config mgr toolkit is installed, so i was actually looking for an entry that said Configmgr toolkit.

    I tried the unininstaller from the programs and features, and it left the dcm tools, and its still complaing I cant upgrade.

    For the next update please either fix the error message so it has the correct text or just make able to preform an in place upgrade.

    Right now I stuck without either one. I cant reinstall the old one because the download is already pulled from the Microsoft Download Center.

    is anyone else having a problem making this new version the default log viewer. i cannot update my "progam list" to open with trace32.exe   simply when i browse to it… it does not update my program list.. to select trace32 as the default program to open log files with

  7. Chris says:

    I figured out my solution.. like typhoon87 said not a very smooth upgrade.. if you want to be able to set default log files to trace 32 again coming from the previous version you have to make sure you do the registry edit .. so browse to the following

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTApplicationsTrace32.exeshellopencommand

    and change it to .. whatever you have your path set to for trace32… or what i did was the default which is

    "C:Program FilesConfigMgr 2007 Toolkit V2Trace32.exe" "%1"  

    this was annoying please fix this,

    Thanks
