I've used SideKick (now SideKick 99) as my calendar/phonebook for many years. I've always been able to install it on each new computer, including my present desktop Athlon/Windows XP Pro system. Just got a new IBM T42 laptop and when install, I get the error message:
This installation has detected that a previous installation or un-installation requires you to restart your computer.
Obviously, there's no prior installation or un-installation on this new computer. I've even tried to install under the safe mode. Same message. It's important to me that I can use this software, but I'm stumped. Why is the laptop different? Is there some function in Win XP that would allow the installed program to "migrate" from my desktop computer through my network? Is there anything else I can try? Help!
