@brian This latest RC pops up a message box first thing after installation starts. This hasn’t happened for previous RC’s; they just detected (I presume) the previous licensed installation and carried on with no further intervention on my part.
The complication with this week’s is that when the message box is dismissed by clicking OK it just returns to the original installer screen with no further clue about how to enter the license key nor any dialog box in which to enter it. This will, I’m sure, confound the ordinary user.
In my case, with my experience in offline WIP installations, I thought I would try the gear icon. This brought up the usual “advanced” installation screen where I was able to enter the key. It began what looks like the ordinary install procedure, which is going on as I type.
I’ll let you know if it succeeds.
I’m assuming it’s just a bug in the installer, but if it’s a change in policy I would hope you would let is know and improve the procedure.
