If a previous version of Enhansoft Reporting is detected, the Setup Wizard will recommend uninstalling at least one or up to three items. Accept the recommendation and click on the Uninstall button. Clicking on the Uninstall button removes the previous version of Enhansoft Reporting from your reporting points.

This uninstall process takes a few minutes to complete. When it is completed, you will receive a confirmation. Click OK.
