Did I messed up the software reinstall?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I was trying to reinstall Samsung Magician because I miss clicked to "I live in European Country" which I'm definitely not from after updating it.

After running the setup wizard I selected "override the previous installation"

I later got this popup which seems to close Samsung Magician.exe which was running in the background, I don't really know what other changes it did in order to reinstall this software and so i panicked and closed the setup wizard after it was done.

I even installed Samsung Magician in my extremely old laptop and tried to replicate the same thing I did in my desktop but I got this error instead

I then uninstalled Samsung Magician from Control panel and reinstalled it again in my old laptop but this time I stopped Samsung Magician from running in background and this popup took only 1 seconds instead of 5-10, so does it mean that this specific popup purpose is only to close Samsung Magician software which was running in background and nothing else?

 

The normal setup wizard runs after that popup

I'm worried and making this post because I had a terrible experience reinstalling a software in the past called Nahimic audio driver, I tried everything but I was never able to get my audio running and in the end people in MSI forum said "the only option left is to reinstall windows".

 

 

So did I messed up the software reinstall in my desktop? Does that popup mentioned above actually does more than just closing the Samsung Magician instance?

No, there doesn't seem to be any visible problem currently but I'm worried that I might end up having one in the future since I didn't reinstalled this application the proper way.

 

As I said above I closed the setup wizard right after the "Please wait" popup which closes Samsung Magician in background and then later ran the setup wizard again after finding no difference in Samsung Magician installed directory.

Then there's no problem if it installed and you can use it.

I'm aware of that but the same thing happened with Nahimic software. It was installed and was running fine at start but later it stopped outputting audio. I'm worried that Samsung Magician might stop working just like how Nahimic did after few days.

 

What should I do if I ever get an issue with this application in future?

Usually a reinstall fixes things on most apps, depends on the issue really, it's not a one-size-fits-all solution unfortunately.

But asking on here or other tech forums should get you an answer if/when you encounter a problem.

I should've explained in more detail.

 

At first I didn't wanted to reinstall this software just because I selected GDPR but I still ran the setup wizard just out of curiosity and selected "override the previous installation".

 

Right when I noticed Samsung Magician isn't in system tray nor running in background I panicked and closed the setup wizard. After checking its directory folder I noticed the application was still there nothing was changed so I then ran setup again and reinstalled it.

 

What i'm worried about is because I closed the setup mid way last time, will it cause this software to not work properly?
