LOL same thing here: 30 machines, removed 8.7 with a task, THEN installed 8.5 with another tas.. all BROKEN wonderful.. i solved uninstalling manually VSE from each machine, updating Windows Script 5.7 on XP sp2 and rebooting.. now 8.5 works
You beat me to it Massi79. That is the only way I have been able to restore 8.5 to working order on our test systems. I would imagine it has something to do with the registry. Some values seem to be kept when you remove 8.7. I have gotten into the habit of restarting the PC everytime I remove removed 8.7 even after a manual uninstall. Seems to go better. Still we never had issues with doing an uninstall and reinstall with 8.5 with out restarts even doing it through EPO. I hope they get these issues resolved soon.
happy about that 🙂 it gave me this error even before, when i tried to upgrade 8.5 to 8.7 i found the problem because my logon script, a vbs script, stopped woring 🙂 so now 8.7 is banned from my network, lol, let's wait for something new.. what fears me is that this 8.7 makes damage even only installing, so a simple "patch 1" will not make me sure 🙂
