I've downloaded version 2.41 in my Windows XP machine, a P4 computer with
504 MB RAM and 40 GB HD. The comoyter has version 2.40 installed and working

When I try to run the Windows Installer for the version 2.41 the following
message appears:

Internal error 2254, feature

... and the installation process got interrupted.

¿It is necessary to uninstall previous versions of Greenstone?
